Bacchus Joint presents the new single previewing the upcoming album The Days of Bright Commotion. Both songs were recorded in the same sessions that produced the 19 songs on the CD.
1,000 Smiles took lots of work to finalize. After a drastic rearrangement of the song, this performance, recorded entirely live with no overdubs, satisfied the musicians at hand. This song is Winebelly’s paean to a fickle member of the audience.
Determination took an old chord progression, married it to a newly found rhythm, and sports lyrics written minutes before the recording to capture the emotional immediacy of the performance. With bass and vibes overdubbed, this song represents the difficulty of maintaining relationships, and by extension, finishing that which should not take so long to complete.
