LA says hi, all set up with my wicked comfy air mattress here. we just finished mixing End of a Spark, the gently merciless four minute quasi-piece-de-resistance of “Champ: Queazy Peach de Renaissance” and it’s really living up to it descriptor. i’m really excited for everyone to hear this one, it’s one of the oldest songs on the record. we started writing it in november ’08 it gave off some excitement that kickstarted writing the other songs. it’s probably the most guitar-y song on the record and has this dynamic where the choruses are like “bam” and the verses say “hold on a sec” and then the chorus comes back and goes “thwak” until the bridge is like “get outta here, kid”. we were able to play this one live on a tour back last year which seems to have given it a really good flow that shows up on the record. the guitars have this great riff on top of stomping drums which is like turbo powered neil young riding a woolly mammoth.
today is sort of a song and half so i’ll blog again soon about our next track. until then remember:
p=t*m or m=p/t
where p is productivity, t is time, and m is money.
or, because time is money, p=m^2
so the derivative of p=2m
see you later,
