The band created a majority of the album on the road over the past two years. “It was written mainly in transit – backstage, hotel rooms, and places like the interstate in different vehicles,” says Godchaux. A handful of tracks on the new album, including “Waiting Around” and “Dream“, incorporate live guitar riffs that were pulled from soundboard multi-tracks as the band experimented with the new tracks on the road. “There’s a live energy mixed in with that. A lot of the new tracks were developed in the live setting,” Randolph says. “And you’re recording that part with an audience in front of you, so it’s a totally different vibe than if it were just the two of us in the studio or hanging out at my house.”
The band returned to their hometown of Muscle Shoals, AL to complete the tracks at Randolph’s home studio. “90% of it was cut in the Shoals,” says Randolph. There was an added historical significance to recording in Muscle Shoals given it’s rich recording history, where legendary soul artists such as Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding once laid down records. “The history obviously has some bearing on the emotional tone of the creative process,” Randolph said.
While Filling In The Color draws from many influences in Randolph and Godchaux’s lives’, the record ultimately comes from an honest, personal place. “It comes down to a search for a certain sound,” says Godchaux, “a certain feel. It’s something we hear in our heads all the time. Forces from within are the driving, motivating factor in pointing this sound out to people.”
“We want the listener to be able to play the record front to back, not just a few tracks,” Godchaux said. “To enjoy the album as a whole. Day or night, happy or sad, from the speaker on their phone to the thumping sound system. We are song makers. That’s what we do. And this record should be confirmation that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing with our lives.”
Filling In the Color is currently available in all digital stores. CD + Vinyl packages are currently available for pre-order and will feature a coloring book of conceptualized artwork for each song, allowing fans to “Fill in the Color” as they see fit.
On to the US of A in 94 and somehow I always seemed to find the good music that kept me dancing. (or maybe it found me) From the Full Moon parties in LA to the NY club scene to my annual stop at Burning Man, my insatiable appetite for the beats has recently inspired me to embrace my passion and start putting the music together myself and play for people that love to dance too.
I’ve recently had the honor of opening for and playing with some other DJ’s that have helped me tremendously.
Thanks so much to all of you and I must give special thanks to Alfred, Jerry, Harry, Scotty, Dom, Britten, Kirby, Ross, Hal and Blick….much love to all my friends and family that have supported me as well.
I feel very fortunate to be on this path and hope you’ll enjoy the beats.
