NEWS BULLETIN from Mr. Anonymous:
Original drummer for The Samples Jeep Macnichol (a.k.a. Mr. Anonymous) will be breaking ground in late July with a fresh summer single called “Some Gal A Move”. Blending his own style of dancehall machine gun toasting against ethereal falsetto harmonies, Anonymous steps out as a pseudo crooner delivering hypnotizing melodies over a slamming backbeat and unshakable guitar labrynth. Serving up ever-changing harmonic hors d’ oerves as it sways and flows, “Some Gal A Move” at its core is a testament to raw melodic simplicity over an unstoppable backbeat.
“This is a song that HAD to come out” says Anonymous…”It just flowed out of me like raw emotion. After I laid down the instrumental tracks, I felt a vibe right on the spot. The vocal ideas were all pure improv. The first vocal track I sang laid the foundation for the whole vibe, and I could “Feel” it when it came out. It was a “first take”, and I could feel it like no other vocal I’ve ever laid down. ”
“Then I started the overdubs which were all a random freeflow between falsetto ‘Come Away’s, megaphone ‘Gal A Move Gal A Moves’, and robot ‘Bong Gong Diggy Diggy Rocks’. We kept them all “as is” including the spot where I laughed and clapped my hand because I was so psyched on what was coming out. In a weird way I felt like I was channeling something through the mic, releasing a lot of headspace I guess…and man I was psyched!”
The drum track was also kept “as is” because of the intensity and spirit in the first take. “There are a couple drum dropouts that happen purely because I dropped a drumstick. I was laughing when I dropped the stick, and I wanted to keep that “life” in the performance. I like the element of “slop” in a recording, and there’s a great vibe in those mistakes.”
Enough said and stay tuned for the music video and track when it comes out in late July!
