This album was fully recorded in The Dada Room with new gear bought around Christmas. A new RME and a Golden Audio Project Preamp were added to the table. Which is also a reason why this acoustic-driven set of songs was born.
“A 1957 Gibson guitar and an eternal love for open tuning. There’s no other way to start writing a song.”
The other reason behind the creative process of this album is that these ‘Traveling Songs’ are clearly dedicated to Dada’s brother, who’s been traveling around the world for years. He’s in fact the person depicted in the artwork.
‘Traveling songs’, a new Dada Weatherman music album.
A song written just after the attacks in Paris. A hommage to the city of lights and the people. Lyrics below the video.
“Paris, I love you”
Paris i know you’re still standing
I love you from all banks of the seine
From voltaire to the cathedral’s bell
Your swirling light guides us through hell
Those fuckers won’t stand in our way
Show me the way to a better day
Paris i love you in my heart
We’re still standing & fear won’t break us apart
Paris i know you’re gonna be stronger
You’ll beat the shit out of the haters
This morning the sun is shining bright again
Love will still remain above the insane
It was recorded entirely with a computer running under Linux and with open-source softwares. *FYI: the strings are made of single violin note samples put together one-by-one. It was never attempted again.* The song is called ‘Painted Dream’.
