The Blue Scholars Release New Single – “Big Bank Hank” [Free DL]

Sea-town’s Blue Scholars return with another new single entitled “Big Bank Hank”. It’s honestly getting to the point where I’m hard pressed to come across a Blue Scholars release I didn’t like.  It’s a chill upbeat song that is hard not to nod ya head to. The song is available for free via the widget below. Check out a humorous retelling of how the song possibly came to be.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Occasionally, Geo and I find ourselves stuck in these phases of indecision.

In the studio (also known as my brother’s video editing room) we were wrapping up a new cut for release on the iNtErnetZ and, for whatever reason, were completely unable to come up with a hook for it. The beat was done, the verses were done, but alas, no hook.

Now, I’m not saying we didn’t have ideas. We did. Plenty. But they were just a whole bunch of whatever-blah-ideas and none were really anything we could decide on and polish. I was beginning to get annoyed.

I mean, we shouldn’t be frustrated right? It’s not like music is our job or anything…

Anyway, at some point Geo shrugs his shoulders, steps to the mic, and starts shouting “Watcha gon do today?”

I recorded it.

While I’m playing back the recording, he starts answering himself by shouting random stuff he plans to do that day. It was an odd choice, but I ended up recording that too.

When that take was finished, we played it back… kinda sat in silence for a second.. looked at each other… said something to the effect of “$@# it!” then hi-fived in a way that wasn’t lame and went and got some Crispy Ginger Chicken at the Kauai Family Restaurant.

Did we finish the song? Yes.
Was the hook a good choice? I dunno.
Did the events described in this email really transpire exactly the way I said they did? Most likely not.
