THE SPECIALS' PROTEST SONGS ALBUM

Additional info to The Others Of Invention: bands that recorded a Frank Zappa piece.
The Specials' "Protest Songs" album has been released in several different versions.

There's the standard red album with black lettering, but

  • The first edition (of 1.000 copies) had album artwork with smaller lettering, black letters on a white background;
  • Amazon released an exclusive pre-signed edition of the LP.
  • There's a red vinyl edition with a bonus 7”;
  • A limited edition on yellow vinyl
  • A limited edition on yellow vinyl that came with an OBI (by ASSAI Records)
  • HMV released a version with red lettering on a white background;
  • The jewel case CD;
  • A digipack CD;
  • A 'deluxe digipack version' with two bonus tracks (the same as the 7” that got released as a bonus with the LP);

I admit that I also bought a copy of the first edition (picture taken from discogs), next to the standard black and yellow releases.



ANOTHER ZAPPA RADIO SHOW BOOTLEG CD HAS BEEN SPOTTED

"The Michigan Muffin Man"


SUPERSISTER

Freaks that have read The Others Of Invention book series know that Dutch band Supersister included a track entitled 'Corporation Combo Boys' on their 1970 "Present From Nancy" album.
The piece mentioned the MOI and presented a short snippet of ‘Hungry Freaks, Daddy’.

The very same 'Corporation Combo Boys' can also be found on "The Sound Of Music”, a 2 LP compilation album (compiled and overseen by Robert Jan Stips).
The album got released in a limited edition of 1500 numbered copies on crystal clear and on transparent yellow vinyl.
2021 Record Store Day release.

BBC SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA - TOTAL IMMERSION - FRANK ZAPPA

BBC Symphony Orchestra Total Immersion: Frank Zappa
Sat 19 Mar 2022

https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2022/series/bbc-symphony-orchestra-total-immersion-frank-zappa?

The BBC Symphony Orchestra takes a deep dive into the diverse musical worlds of Frank Zappa – one of the 20th century’s most idiosyncratic musicians.

Few have influenced music like Frank Zappa. Now the 20th century titan becomes the focus of a BBC Symphony Orchestra Total Immersion Day, led by conductor Brad Lubman. Ever the experimentalist, Zappa’s music explores influences as diverse as classical modernism, free improvisation, rock and roll virtuosity and cultural satire. Expect the unexpected in a day of film, talks and music charting Zappa’s remarkable career.

Full details will be published on Wed 24 Nov.


THE ZAPPA EARLY RENAISSANCE ORCHESTRA - MAKE AN ARF NOISE HERE

  • the zappa early renaissance orchestra: make an arf noise here
        (2021, cd, uk, cordelia records)
Z.E.R.O., also known as The Zappa Early Renaissance Orchestra has just released a new album.
Another fabulous tribute to the music of Frank Zappa.

Master mind Kevin Crosby used the same recipe as on the previous albums: finding the correct match between the musicians and the music.
As a result, the list of participating musicians is quite impressive. It's not really one band that you get to hear on "Make An Arf Noise Here". It's different sets of musicians that present Frank Zappa's music in a wide variety of interpretations.

Do I like it?
I love it.

Just mentioning some of the goosebump moments :  Christiane Seebach & Andreas Steinhardt on 'Hungry Freaks, Daddy', Juliana Brandon on 'What's The Name Of Your Group' and 'Spider Of Destiny', Eric Trøim on 'The Mammy Anthem', John Parkinson and Sam Ward on 'Cletus', Kevin's take on 'Billy The Mountain' !

Attentive freaks might have heard some of the above pieces during the on-line Zappanale festival earlier this year, or maybe as small project with some YouTube output, but I can only say that I'm extremely happy with this collection of fine tracks !!

  1. Hungry Freaks Daddy
  2. What Is The Name Of Your Group?
  3. Zoot Allures
  4. The Mammy Anthem
  5. Status Back Baby
  6. My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama
  7. Spider Of Destiny
  8. Echidna's Arf
  9. Trouble Comin' Every Day
  10. Cletus Awreetus Awrightus
  11. Billy The Mountain (A short introductory hike)
  12. Outside Now (live)
  13. Make An Arf Noise Here
Out on the Cordelia Records label.

TONY WILLIAMS - WILDERNESS

  • tony williams: wilderness
        (1996, cd, usa, ark21 records)

The late jazz / fusion drummer Tony Williams performed and recorded with Miles Davis, John McLaughlin (in the Tony Williams Lifetime band) and Herbie Hancock, just to name a few.

His 1996 "Wilderness" album featured Walt Fowler, Earle Dumler, Bob Zimmitti and Michael Brecker, who all worked with Frank Zappa during certain moments in their career.

"Wilderness" is quite fascinating as Tony assembled an orchestra and some top notch jazz musicians to express his view on wilderness.

Nice. Very nice. Must have been one of his latest projects as he passed away in 1997.

For those who want to check it out, the complete album has been uploaded to YouTube.


MILES DAVIS - BLACK BEAUTY

  • miles davis: black beauty - miles davis at fillmore west
        (1973, 2lp, japan, cbs/sony)

Recorded on April 10, 1970, at Bill Graham's Fillmore West.
Released in 1973 as a 2LP set in Japan by CBS / Sony, and re-issued on CD in 1987 (also only in Japan), the album got a worldwide release in 1997.

Miles Davis (trumpet), Steve Grossman (soprano sax), Chick Corea (electric piano), Michael Henderson (bass), Airto Moreira (percussion) and Jack DeJohnette (drums).



    BRUNO VANSINA - PRESENTING THE DEMONS OF SHAME

    • bruno vansina: presenting the demons of shame
          (2021, download, bel, bandcamp)

    On his Bandcamp page, Bruno Vansina says:

    This is what I do when I forget for a moment that I'm a saxophonist, that I'm a ‘supposedly’ trained ‘jazz’ musician. I release this album under the new and slightly more modest alter ego 'Urbaan Vonnis' because the earlier album -Nirvana Bonus and the Demons Of Shame- from 2008 is just crying out for its successor. 13 years ago I already made an almost complete second album. Now, after all these years - I will never dare to perform this live again - I thought the time was right to finish these demos further. Once again I call on the guitar, bass guitar and magic scissors of Pierre Vervloesem. Enjoy and hopefully laugh as hard as I do !!!

    According to Bruno, this material got recorded in 2008, right after "Nirvano Bonus And The Demons Of Shame".
    To be honest, I don't care when it got recorded. The most important thing is that it got released.

    "Presenting The Demons Of Shame" is a great album.
    Assuming the demons are Bruno Vansina (sax, flute, synth, keyboard) and Pierre Vervloesem (guitar, bass, vocals), they were assisted by David Thomaere (keyboard), Peter Vandenberghe (piano, vocals), and Jordi Geuens (drums).
    12 tracks: from a Talking Heads tribute over jazzy saxophone lines to floating guitar tones, and everything in between.

    The Bandcamp page does not mention a CD or LP release, so I went for the digital download option (although I still prefer physical releases).

    Check it out :


    GOV'T MULE - STONED SIDE OF THE MULE

    • gov't mule: stoned side of the mule vol. 1 & 2
          (2015, 2lp, europe, provogue) 

    In 2014, the Evil Teen record label released "Stoned Side Of The Mule Vol.1" as a single LP record store day release in the U.S.
    April 18, 2015, they repeated the exercise, releasing "Vol.2". Again, as a Record Store Day exclusive album.
    Later the same year, the Provogue label combined both albums and released them as a 2LP set in Europe.

    "Stoned Side Of The Mule" is Gov't Mule's tribute to the music of The Rolling Stones.
    I've never listened to The Stones that much. Only know their hits from the radio. Probably because my mind got spoiled with Zappa, The Mothers and Captain Beefheart at a young age.
    Anyway, "Stoned Side Of The Mule" presents a fine set of songs and even a nice discovery or two.
    An impressive tribute.

    The album should also be available on CD (unofficially) but I've never seen a copy.



    ROBIN VERHEYEN - THE BACH RIDDLES

    • robin verheyen: the bach riddles
          (2021, cd, bel, de werf)
    Belgian jazz saxophonist Robin Verheyen is a busy bee. He is performing with the Mixmonk ensemble (Joey Baron / Bram De Looze / Robin Verheyen) and with Taxi Wars (with Tom Barman), and at the same time, he recorded "The Bach Riddles", an experimental approach to J.S.Bach's baroque music.

    I'm not familiar enough with J.S. Bach's music but I do like Robin's take.
    Out on the WERF label. LP, CD and digital download through Bandcamp.



    THE LUCK OF EDEN HALL - ALLIGATORS EAT GUMDROPS

    • the luck of eden hall: alligators eat gumdrops
          (2012, cd, usa, private release)
    The Luck Of Eden Hall is a Chicago-based psychedelic rock band.
    I received a digital dowload copy of "Alligators Eat Gumdrops" as an introduction to the band and I have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised.
    They have this distinguished seventies sound and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that.

    Gregory Curvey (guitar, sitar, piano, bass, drums, vocals) with Mark Lofgren (bass, guitar, synthesizer, vocals) and Carlos Mendoza (drums), plus guests.

    FRANK ZAPPA - THE MANCHESTER MYSTERY

    • frank zappa: the manchester mystery
          (2020, 2cd, uk, gossip records)
    Another radio show album.
    Manchester 1979, taken from a live broadcast, and adding a mystery rehearsal piece.
    Not bad for a radio show bootleg. Not bad at all.
    Highlights (for me) are the bonus tracks : 'Strictly Genteel', followed by 'Pound For A Brown' with an amazing Tommy Mars solo.

    CHARLIE HADEN'S LIBERATION MUSIC ORCHESTRA - LIVE 1993

    • charlie haden's liberation music orchestra: live 1993
          (2019, cd, --, equinox)

    Recorded live in 1993, this (unofficial) Equinox label release features some impressive musicians: 
    Charlie Haden (bass), Tom Harrell (trumpet, flugelhorn), Earl Gardner (trumpet), Tim Hagans (trumpet),  Ray Anderson (trombone), Ahnee Sharon Freeman (horn), Joe Daley (tuba), Makanda Ken McIntyre (sax), Joe Lovano (tenor sax), Javon Jackson (tenor sax), Mick Goodrick (guitar), Amina Claudine Myers  (piano, vocals), Bill Stewart (drums) and Mark Burton (percussion).

    Amazing.

    TODD RUNDGREN & THE ROOTS

    Newly Inducted Rock Hall Member TODD RUNDGREN Releases Neo-Funk Collaboration With THE ROOTS!

    Los Angeles, CA - In early 2011, as Todd Rundgren was promoting an upcoming tour, he stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon for live performances of two songs from his classic 1972 album Something/Anything, “I Saw The Light” and “Couldn’t I Just Tell You.” Backing Rundgren for both songs was Fallon’s long running house band, hip hop auteurs The Roots. The appearance marked the beginning of a furtive cross-cultural, cross-generational collaborative relationship born of mutual respect and admiration that would be repeated again in 2017 when Rundgren sat in with The Roots on a taping of the Fallon show. Now, these two musical giants reunite on a studio recording, a track that will appear on Rundgren’s upcoming Space Force album coming next year. The new single, “Godiva Girl,” is a delectable slice of neo-funk sweetness with a stellar, soulful groove, decorated with warm keyboards and smooth as silk background vocals. It’s the kind of rich musical confection that fans of both Rundgren and The Roots knew these two could cook up together, and it’s so been worth the wait.


    CARLOS SANTANA - BLESSINGS AND MIRACLES

    • carlos santana: blessings and miracles
          (2021, cd, usa, bmg)

    On Blessings and Miracles, music legend and guitar master Carlos Santana delivers one of the most ambitious, inspired and flat-out magical records of his storied career. There’s thrilling feats of bravura musicianship that pair the guitar master with fellow icons like Chick Corea and Steve Winwood, knockout rockers with Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Living Colour’s Corey Glover, and genre-bending, hook-filled celebrations featuring Rob Thomas, Chris Stapleton, G-Eazy, American Authors and Ally Brooke, among others. The record also features bravura performances from members of Santana’s touring band (including drummer Cindy Blackman Santana and singer Tommy Anthony), as well as impeccable vocals and keyboards by the guitarist’s son, Salvador Santana, and stunning lead vocals by daughter, Stella Santana.

    Santana spent much of the past two years recording Blessings and Miracles, serving as producer and collaborating with other record makers, including collaborating with a host of brilliant writers and producers including Chris Stapleton, Diane Warren, Rick Rubin, Gregg Wattenberg, Peter Stengaard and Narada Michael Walden, As for the stellar talents that appear alongside him on Blessings and Miracles, Santana admits that he’s sometimes surprised at how they magically enter his life. “I don’t choose people – it’s like I’m chosen,” he says. “But, of course, I’m honored to work with such incredible artists. I'm a surfer riding those waves that become songs by different artists, creators and architects. I’m very fortunate that I have the opportunity to do that. It’s a gift I don’t take for granted.”

    RICK WAKEMAN'S CAPED CRUSADOR COLLECTOR CLUB

    From GlassOnyon PR

    Join Keyboard Legend Rick Wakeman’s Caped Crusader Collector Club!

    Members will receive rare memorabilia and unreleased music!

    On October 14th sign up to the Caped Crusader Collector Club and receive a membership pack containing an individually numbered membership card, a signed (by Rick) welcome letter, an exclusive year book full of rare photos, articles and memorabilia from Rick's personal archive, a sticker and four 8x10 photos. You will also receive the first exclusive CCCC CD release, which is the previously unreleased Wakeman soundtrack from the feature film, “She.” The following three releases for the year will feature rare and live music from the Wakeman vaults. Further, there will be three exclusive CD releases issued within the year, which members will receive automatically through the post periodically. Please note, these releases will not be released to the general public, either online or at any other retailer.

    Additionally, as a CCCC member you will receive a 10% discount off all purchases (including box sets) at the Wakeman Music Emporium (on-line only), invites to special events, early notifications of the releases and a totally exclusive merchandising range, along with some other goodies.

    If you join in October, you will automatically receive 15 months membership for the price of 12!

    “I am really excited about the Caped Crusader Collector Club (CCCC) as something very different. As a musician. I think it is important that serious fans get to hear music that would otherwise be left in drawers and on shelves and in some cases, discarded.

    With the formation of the CCCC, I feel that this is an innovative way for core fans to get to hear music which I have discovered in various of my archives. Much of which was found when packing ready to move house

    I had completely forgotten about some of this material and it has really surprised me what was found. All part of my musical journey over almost 5 decades. I truly believe for real collectors these exclusive CD's will be received in the same way that The Treasure Chest was some years ago.

    I hope everyone has as much enjoyment hearing these recordings as I had after discovering them.” – Rick Wakeman

    GOV'T MULE'S NEW YEAR'S RUN

    NEW YEAR'S RUN ANNOUNCED

    We are incredibly happy to announce the return of Gov't Mule's annual New Year's Run. It all kicks off on December 29th in Philadelphia, PA at The Met before heading "home" to the friendly confines of The Beacon Theatre in New York City for 2 nights beginning December 30th. On Friday December 31st, we close the run and the year with a very special Black 'n' Blue New Year's Show. We've got a lot of surprises in store for this one.

    We first, and last, played The Met as part of our 2019 New Year's Run. We were immediately blown away by the venue and the energy in the crowd. We all commented on how much we enjoyed playing there and looked forward to returning. Its been longer than we imagined, but that's going to make it even better.

    from October 8 to December 16, 2021.

    Here's some album artwork, less recent :



    SALAH RAGAB AND THE CAIRO JAZZ BAND

    Funky big band brass.

    In 1968, while he was also the leader of the Military Music Departments in Heliopolis, Salah Ragab formed the first jazz big band in Egypt, The Cairo Jazz Band. Some of the best musicians in Egypt of that time were members – Zaki Osman (trumpet), Saied Salama (tenor sax), Khamis El-Kholy (piano) and Ala Mostafa (piano).

    On these recordings The Band consists of five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, piano, bass, drums and percussion and various other oriental instruments. The opening concert of The Cairo Jazz Band was in Ewart Memorial Hall at The American University 23/02/1969 followed by many other concerts in various prestigious places such as the Old Opera House, The University of Alexandria and appearances on Egyptian TV Jazz Club Weekly.

    Salah Ragab studied jazz theory and improvisation with the jazz musician and composer from Kansas City, USA, Osman Kareem, with whom he formed the first Jazz Quintet in Cairo in 1963 recording with the Radio Service of Cairo. He accompanied the great bandleader and composer Sun Ra on a tour in Egypt, Greece, France and Spain in 1984.

    Re-released on LP and 2LP.


    MAGMA - ESKÄHL 2020

    • magma: eskähl 2020
          (2021, 2cd, france, seventh records)
    October 8, 2021, Magma performed at 'Het Depot' in Leuven.
    An excellent opportunity to see the band in concert.
    Besides two minor aspects (no seats available although it had been announced as a flex (standing + seated) concert, and Christian Vander's drums that were too loud to hear the vocals properly, it was a fine experience.
    I had seen the band a couple of times at the Zappanale festival, but I really prefer to see them in a non-festival concert venue. It's easier to focus (and that's essential with Magma).

    "Eskähl 2020" has none of the above mentioned disadvantages. Recorded in concert (subtitled "Bordaux - Toulouse - Perpignan"), presenting a a super performance in an excellent mix, this is a nice addition to Magma's extended discography.

    My advice: try to catch them live and make sure that you take "Eskähl 2020" home with you afterwards.

    ALL-STAR PINK FLOYD TRIBUTE

    From GlassOnyonPR

    An All-Star Gathering Of Rock Legends Including GRAHAM BONNET, ARTHUR BROWN, VINNIE MOORE, DAVID J, JAMES LABRIE, and others Perform PINK FLOYD’s 1977 Epic ANIMALS In Its Entirety!

    Album features performances by Al Di Meola, Albert Lee, Rick Wakeman, Martin Barre, Carmine Appice, Jordan Rudess, Billy Cobham, Jan Akkerman, and more!

    Los Angeles, CA - Following the wildly successful Still Wish You Were Here project released earlier this year, another gathering of classic, prog and art rock superstars have come together to recreate and reimagine Pink Floyd's ambitious 1977 concept album, Animals! Fusing the white-hot guitar work of Floyd guitarist David Gilmour with the stone-cold cynicism of Roger Water’s lyrics, Animals is widely hailed by die-hard Floyd fans as one of the group’s most highly conceptual and uncompromising albums of their career, and certainly set the template for the commercial breakthrough that would come two years later with 1979’s The Wall.

    Now, some of the most veteran players and singers on the planet including jazz-rock guitar legend Al Di Meola, psych-rock godfather Arthur Brown, drum master Billy Cobham, UFO's Vinnie Moore, Bauhaus's David J, Dream Theater's James LaBrie, and so many more come to give their unique spins to this magnum opus. Each track of this groundbreaking work has been completely reimagined with modern production flourishes and tasteful musical additions while staying true to the original album's heady and subtly complex compositions. Just listen to the new version of “Dogs,” a superb 17-minute suite sung by Rainbow's Graham Bonnet with Vinnie Moore on guitar, Utopia's Kasim Sulton on bass, Dream Theater's Jordan Rudess on keyboards, and King Crimson drummer Pat Mastelotto.

    Stream “Dogs”: https://orcd.co/graham_bonnet_vinnie_moore_dogs

    Animals Reimagined - A Tribute To Pink Floyd is set for release on November 19 on both CD and digital with a vinyl version coming in 2022. The CD version comes in a deluxe 6-panel digipak with artwork created by the most successful digital artist working today, Mike “Beeple” Winkelmann, with cover art designed by James McCarthy. Look for the NFT charity auction of the front cover image later this year!

    ANDROID TRIO

    I think I mentioned the Android Trio's upcoming "Other Worlds" album a couple of weeks ago already.
    Featuring Andrew Niven, Eric Klerks and Max Kutner, "Other Worlds" was produced by none other than Mike Keneally !

    This is the band's second release. Due out in a couple of weeks.
    Their first album," Road Songs", got released on the Orenda Records label in 2017. 


    The new album is out on Cuneiform.


    from the Cuneiform newsletter:

    It’s not that Other Worlds, Android Trio’s second album,
    is going to be huge: it is huge, as in enormously thrilling and boundlessly inventive. Ironically, the global pandemic that left guitarist Max Kutner, percussionist Andrew Niven, and bassist Eric Klerks unable to meet in the flesh for more than a year also allowed them to make a record that blends grand statements with rhythmic complexity.

    “Get your headphones,” Android Trio guitarist Max Kutner advises. Other Worlds is a wild ride.

    It’s also a great advance over Android Trio’s powerful but recorded-in-a-hot-moment debut, Road Songs. Whereas the first record is essentially a performance document, Other Worlds is a fully fleshed-out compositional statement, marked by intricate production strategies and an assortment of extraordinary guests.

    “Because we weren’t limited by studio costs and all that, we just went hog-wild on overdubs,” the guitarist explains. “So we were able to make an album to a level of excess that’s more like the things we grew up listening to. Kind of like Gentle Giant, or Genesis: this huge sound.”

    If you go looking for influences, others will quickly surface. Progressive rock is certainly here: Other Worlds stands comparison to King Crimson’s masterpiece of the genre, Red, and Eric Klerks is one of a handful of electric bassists who can rival Yes mainstay Chris Squire’s singular blend of grandiosity and fierce aggression. In their deployment of odd time signatures and memorable melodies, many of the new record’s tunes owe a debt to the Bill Bruford/ Dave Stewart/ Allan Holdsworth school, while traces of American fusion can also be detected.

    But, as Kutner points out, “we all love video-game music,” along with American minimalism, the hyper-technical electric jazz currently coming out of New York City, math rock, and the Ghanaian drumming that all three studied during their overlapping years at CalArts. (In fact, Other Worlds kicks off with one of those beats, before guest Jonathan Sindelman’s keyboards lead “Anger Dance” off in another direction altogether.

    And then there’s the intriguing fact that Kutner, Klerks, and Andrew Niven were all schooled in playful virtuosity, sprung rhythms, and no-holds-barred experimentation while playing in two of the great legacy bands of progressive music: the Grandmothers, who specialize in the playful and occasionally self-mocking reinvention of the Frank Zappa/ Mothers of Invention repertoire, and the Magic Band, drummer-vocalist John “Drumbo” French’s uncannily inspired tribute to the music of his mentor and monster, Don “Captain Beefheart” Van Vliet.

    “That’s how we kind of came together,” Kutner says. “Eric I knew more, because I’d played with him in a few different projects. Andy I met later, when I did this band called the Grandmothers of Invention, which was kind of like a Zappa alumni thing. We sort of crossed paths in Australia for the first time in 2014, when Eric and Andy were doing the Magic Band. And, you know, we were all like ‘This is great, but we need to do our own thing.’ Like, we can’t just play in legacy bands forever. We have to pay homage to the things we like by making our own stuff.”

    Zappa’s influence is most apparent in the new record’s “Serial Tune”, which opens with a very Zappa-esque trumpet fanfare and draws on the late guitarist’s interest in putting early-20th-century compositional strategies into more accessible frameworks. Beefheart, in turn, comes to the fore on “Secular Athletes”, an appropriately muscular take on the brittle, bent blues abstractions of Van Vliet’s landmark Trout Mask Replica.

    Neither sounds like anything other than Android Trio music—but there is another historical link in the presence of co-producer, keyboardist, and guitarist Mike Keneally, who was Zappa’s “stunt soloist” during the late 1980s, as well as a great composer and songwriter in his own right.

    “I knew Mike, because we’d premiered one of his orchestral pieces in L.A. in 2011, and I’ve been in close with him ever since,” Kutner says. “And I figured that if there was anybody who would get all of the different references—the reference points for what we’re trying to do—and kick us in the ass to make sure that we were tighter in doing it, it would be Mike."

    “He can play, sure, but he’s going to get subtle stuff in a way that a lot of other people wouldn’t get.” he continues. “And that’s the very cool thing about Mike: even though he’s twice our age, he’s just on it. He’s professional and he’s enthusiastic about things in the exact same way.”
    With Keneally on board as musical guest, band counselor, technical supervisor, and ultimate aesthetic arbiter, Android Trio has made the album they really wanted to make — and Kutner stresses that Other Worlds is an album, in the best and most old-school possible way.
    “All of us really love albums as much as we love performing,” he explains. “So we wanted to make this record something that’s fleshed out, in the way of the classic albums of the ’60s and ’70s: full of weird production stuff, and arrangements that might not necessarily translate to or even be possible in a live setting. We’re not going to be selling a million copies of this, so let’s just go for it and work with what we’ve got,” he adds. “We can’t be in the same room together, but we’re not limited by an engineer’s costs, or limited time for overdubs, or physical gear, so let’s just see what happens.
    “That was really the focus: our love of sound—and it was probably the most fun album I’ve ever been a part of!
