Dirty Laundry.

I’ll find any excuse to put off doing laundry. It’s one of those mundane chores of life that I could really do without… but then again, I don’t want to smell like a bum.

Earlier today, as I was reluctantly carrying my basket of laundry downstairs, I passed my studio in the hallway and could hear my drums calling out to me:

Hey asshole. Put that basket down. Come in here. Laundry can wait. You’re two days behind on loops!”

Fine, fine. Twist my arm.

I sat down and thought about what I was going to record. I’ve been on another Beatles kick the past few days (The White Album on heavy iPod rotation) and decided I’d go for a Ringo type vibe. To get the flat “towel sound”, I reached for three t-shirts that were on top of the pile of laundry and placed them on my toms and snare. Why mess up some perfectly clean towels?

The sound is in the smell.
The sound is in the smell.

Loop #40

Three dirty t-shirts, a bit of compression and a lot of procrastination.
