A quick heads up for cassette-lovers out there: Physical copies of Shormey’s bright and utterly brilliant God Bless Bob Ross: A Collection Of Low Fidelity Recordings are now available over at Citrus City’s Bandcamp page.
As you can probably tell from my last few posts, I’ve been celebrating Bandcamp’s recent fee waiver events enthusiastically, and since those Fridays can feel somewhat frenzied, with new releases popping up left and right throughout the day, I’ve started making retrospective mixes to unpack all the beautiful chaos.
The hardest thing about making a mix in honor of Bandcamp’s June 6 event was deciding which track from God Bless Bob Ross to include. The whole thing is stellar. I ended up going with “honeydipper,” which is intoxicatingly propulsive and wildly inventive in how it builds and releases its kinetic energy.
