About "Greener Than The Trees"
About half of the new album started as improvisations we recorded on guitar (Ed) and drums (me). We would get together, roll tape, and just make stuff up. Later we'd slap some melody and lyrical ideas on top of the improvised tracks, and we started to see (and hear) some very fun and often surprising results.
This song came from one of those improvisations, and on that night, we were recording with our friend Jeff Walker on bass. A week or so later, I threw down some quick vocal ideas and a stream of words for Ed to check out, and we ended up keeping almost all of those original demo vocals.
Later, our friend John Ganser from vonFrickle added the beautifully lush and swirly vintage keys (Moog and Kurzweil), and this puppy was pretty much ready to mix. Nowadays, it has found its home as the closing track on our new record, Tales Of A Modern Splash.
Happy Earth Day!
