More Marimba

We go out to percussionist Mattijs Vanderleen to work out marimba patterns for ‘The Reed Choked House’, a percussion driven song. The lyric is finished and there’s a structure to the song, so it’s fairly easy to put everything in place. We add some breaks here and there. Another thing that comes up is the drum pattern for ‘The Chrysanthemum Vow’, we ran the song in the January Sessions with a shuffle, the beat could be a bit more straightforward but defragmented.
