At first look, “Blue Spark” seems somewhat intimidating at its 6:07 runtime. The truth of the matter is that “Blue Spark” is not your casual rock track. It’s not your everyday, three-minute drums, bass n’ guitar jaunt around the block. The complexities of the track need this time to unwind fully, put their feet up and establish their positions. The thing is, the sound of “Blue Spark” is deeply textured (read: interesting) enough to maintain attention and make you forget how long the track has been playing for and how long you expect it to continue.

The pleasant disorientation of “Blue Spark” comes from its mix of musical characters and instrumental sounds. The piano is the constant, pounding out a pleasantly-clumped figure that keeps up the rhythm and provides a forest of notes for the melody to run through. The piano brings some of the thunder to “Blue Spark” as well, rolling out deep, pounding bass notes from deep on the left side of the keyboard. The electric bass tone needs to be as fuzzy as it is to keep up with the pure power coming out of the piano.

We’d be tempted to say that “Blue Spark” creates its own universe, but the sounds contained therein are not totally alien. The arrangement’s jazze-macabre feel has just enough friendly menace to it to make it sound dangerous - yet still magnetic. The crooning vocals aren’t ironic or anachronistic - even when electric guitars and saturated bass tones are knocking down the doors to the speakeasy. Mic Raygun says let ‘em all in, we’ll have ourselves a riot. And we do.

Bio

Variety is important to me. I write a lot of songs and the range of emotion is extensive. May be I am too emotional. If you meet me off stage you may think I lack emotion. You may think I am stoic, or lack intelligence. I guess when you feel so much you tend to appear stagnant cause your body/mind doesn't know what/how to express. Truth and honesty is hard and terrifying to reveal. Why can't one allow themselves to share truth, to share what embarrasses/scares/excites them? I don't know, but I do my best to be honest. I too lack the ability to share and tell all, but I guess that makes me human. Writing songs about my emotions and sharing them on stage and in recordings reveal earnest, passionate feelings. I'm growing, and with that I'm becoming more and more comfortable as a human everyday. What will that mean for my future releases? I don't know, but I am excited to discover and share.
