I was particularly proud of this set. It had some of my best transitions to date. And I really tried to stretch myself to connect the dots of as many different records and genres as I could.
On the walk to the gig, I started a note on my phone of a bunch of songs that would string together well, and while I didn’t end up using quite everything on the list, it was a super helpful starting point.
Theme song from this week’s stunning episode of the world’s toppermost-of-the-poppermost coffee show, Unpacking Coffee.
It was a fun set with a couple of technical issues. The recording started a bit late, ended a bit early, and there’s a ton of little skips because of the environment! But lots of fun!
Theme song from next week’s thrilling episode of the world’s premiere coffee show, Unpacking Coffee. Special thanks to Eric Lucas, on drums.
He wore glasses that covered up his eyes
She was suited in a suitable disguise
They roasted coffee, mmm the lows and highs
Dapper, dapper and wise.
If you’re divided, you balkanize
If you’re stealing, you burglarize
Well if you’re messy, you organize
Dapper, dapper and wise.
Dapper, dapper and wise…
