Snow is gone and sun is shining. And world is still closed.
It's been a year which is kinda weird. Last spring I was doing theatre stuff, now there is no way to do anything like that - latest theatre project I was part of got also cancelled so... it's stupid. But what can you do? I rather stay safe and healthy than get sick.
At least there's something interesting coming up in April: I was asked to be part of Flights of Foundry 2021! I'll be hosting a virtual art & music showcase 'The Art and Music of Juho Saari'. That should be fun! Come check it out on April 16-18. I'll be posting more information probably on Twitter and Instagram closer to the convention.
There will also be an exclusive and very, very limited vinyl release during that time...
As usual, new Juho & the Jellyfish from Jupiter song is out. This one is one of my personal favourites and I had a lots of fun recording it - though my recording Macbook decided to stop working for a while, so I had to use some... new techniques. Anyway, Macbook is now all fixed up (if you don't count the broken screen) and I got this track finished in time.
I just can't record with anything else than Mac. Windows and music stuff is match made in hell. End of the story.
'Don't Colour Inside the Lines' takes some inspiration from bands like Pet Shop Boys, Hurts and Red Vox. I wanted to do pretty simple synth rock track and it turned out better than I expected. Guitar stuff is somewhat inspired by Bowie's 'Heroes'.
I use the word ''stuff'' a lot.
That's all for now. I hope to see you at Flights of Foundry later in April!
