Last year while I was working on the new record, ‘Matter,’ I was spending a ton of time playing instruments and hunched over my computer recording/programming/mixing/tcob/etc…. Eventually my body got all bent out of shape about it (get it?) and my wrists and arms starting bothering me.
I ended up going to the doctor and was prescribed lots and lots of stretching. Which can be a really calming and meditative thing to spend a bunch of hours doing. But then, other times it can be an INCREDIBLY boring thing to spend a bunch of hours doing. Like, really boring. So I made a small Spotify mix with some of my favorite instrumental songs, which then little by little grew into a much bigger mix. And by the end it was almost 13 hours long.
Most of the songs are old favorites of mine. Some are relatively new to me. But, it has served me well as a stretching/yoga/working/chilling/reading mix, and if you use Spotify, hopefully you can get some mileage out of it.
We’re celebrating the release of the new record, ‘Matter,’ with a show at one of our favorite venues, Black Cat, in DC on Thursday, March 3rd with our friends Color Palette & Me and Karen. We love Black Cat and are really looking forward to hanging out and playing some new and old songs. You can get your tickets here.
