It’s amazing where musicians take their inspiration from. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that inspire a song, sometimes it’s political and sometimes it’s just the world around us that inspires. Take the Canadian bedroom producer, Teen Daze, for example. His newest effort is a four track EP inspired by the new home he moved into on the mountain side. The four tracks are composed of kitchenware that was sampled, acoustic guitar, improvised live bass samples and smooth electronics to set the mood. Teen Daze gives us this EP as if it’s a love letter to spring. For a measly $4 you can own these four tracks and help pay for Teen Daze’s upcoming wedding! Enjoy!
From Teen Daze -
“The House On The Mountain was recorded in March of 2013; I recently moved into a house situated on the side of Sumas Mountain, in my hometown of Abbotsford, BC. Inspired by the overwhelming beauty of the changing of the seasons outside, and a big empty house with lots of kitchen ware that has been dying to be sampled, I pieced together these tracks over a few weeks. The final piece of the puzzle, and one of the most unique to any Teen Daze recording, is the guitar playing. I would spend the day putting together the beat, and after a morning in the kitchen, I would ask my roommate David (also the bass/guitar player for the live Teen Daze band you’ll be seeing later this year) to just improvise over-top of the beat. I’d sample his playing, and a quick mix later, we had a song. Then we’d usually go eat pizza and talk about video games. I’m lucky to have such a talented friend, and I’m sure this won’t be the last collaboration you’ll hear between us. I hope you enjoy this little slice of Spring in British Columbia; here’s to afternoons spent in the flower garden!”
