Mr. Haircut – Emotive Energy

by Mr. Haircut



This music is all featured on episodes 6 and 7 of the Mr. Haircut podcast.

Ryan Hsu, guitar wizardrer of the Fruit Smoothie Trio, Papa Panda and the Bamboo Shoots, and Nylon Lion graces us with his masterly presence on this second episode of our Emotive Energy series. The first three tracks here feature Ryan, Jonathan Green on drums and myself on bass, and all three were completely improvised in the studio while recording the podcast. At around 11 am too, which is hard to do.

Afro Blue is a standard jazz tune and was recorded on a gig with my band RK3 featuring Jonathan on drums and Russell Kelly on guitar.

Sweater Time is actually very very very similar to a song named Sweater Weather by the Neighborhood, that is probably copyrighted and we obviously couldn't release our own version of that without permission. But this is our own version. I don't actually play on it though, I was just there watching. This features Court Wynter on bass, Jonathan on drums and Daniel Seriff on guitar.
