That's what she said?!? The Rebellion takes a turn for the inebriated as multi-instrumentalist troublemaker XPRTNovice shows up & transports us into a gypsy tavern kinda place, where cranks are ground (get your mind out of the gutter), people mutter things, clarinets wail, vintage organs pump (get your mind out of the gutter again...), and acoustic guitar gets all folksy-like:
"You seriously don't want to hear the first time I tried to mix this. Brandon wanted me to do this, and I thought, "Cool, I'll try my hand at something prog-metal-ish. It was ass. I spent 8 months creating an utter failure, then promptly threw it away and accomplished this mix in less than 24 hours. Many thanks to Brandon for mastering.
Warning: Guitar, clarinet, and drunken yelling are live recorded in my basement, where both of these things go together."
Sounds like a pretty cool basement. When I think of Joe's music, I often tend to think of the soundtrack to Everything Is Illuminated - great film, great score. I've got no idea if he's seen it, but he should, because I think he'd dig it - this mix vaguely reminds me of the aesthetic of groups like Leningrad & Gogol Bordello. Mix-wise, this also reminds me of Brandon Strader's 'The Kirb Reich' - similar starkness to the handling of the melody. zykO's returned to judge some mixes lately, and he had much to say... bordering on free verse poetry:
"poignant living room organ intro, slow-rising and unapologetically serene. it instantly feels intimate, quirky and surreal all at once, like strollin down to the local jr market atop an orange elephant. you've got an XPRT touch at layering the different textures (granted, it's entirely formulaic to marry a mando, accordion and clarinet together. the french have been doin it for centuries and yet somehow you're doing it in a way that doesn't at all feel overused).
the break is sudden and jarring and feels like a horrible NOVICE ending (so you know i dig it lol), takes you to a back corner of the bazaar, a sultry place where you have clever strings in the background coercing the listener to look into the creepy tent made of human skin with the dinklage sitting outside of it (this = good). and when i do......
i am met with a rollicking good time, singing and all. ohhhhhhh i'm in love. take me with you to this crank if this is what crank is then i want to go there."
I'll have what he's having; seriously transporting & visual commentary. Great stuff from Joe... I can understand spending months working on something you just KNOW is going to be grand, then finally realizing it ain't gonna work and doing something far more quickly that's far better. Sounded like it could have been fun, sure, but this arrangement oozes character, dive bar ambiance, & a charming sense of Eastern European post-Soviet decay. I'll drink to that.
