Listen/Download/Purchase: Run by The Really Good Pot Roast

We’ve wanted to release this song for a while.  I think we’ve posted it here before, but it bears repeating.  This one is a straight ahead 70’s style guitar-forward rocker.  We had a lot of fun just stripping things back and keeping things focused on guitars, bass, and vocals here. 

We hope you enjoy it.

Listen/Download/Purchase: Nerd Love by The Really Good Pot Roast

We are not the most ‘hip’ or ‘cool’ or ‘with it’ guys in the world.  Our understanding of dating is… tenuous at best.  So this song celebrates love from nerds like us.

The Really Good Pot Roast - Jolene (Dolly Parton Cover)


QUESTION:  What does a band do after just finishing recording and mixing an album?

ANSWER:  Record a cover of Jolene in 24 hours.

Much like Mark’s cover of ‘…Hit Me Baby One More Time’, this track just kind of snuck up on us, and we ran with it.  Let me take you through the last 24 hours of this recording’s short life:

- - -


Tuesday, 8:30pm - Text Exchange
ROB: For some reason I started recording a cover of Jolene.
MARK: Yes. Yes. Do it.  That might have to go on the blog.
MARK: Please do it.
ROB: Let’s see what happens with it.  I might tag you in for backing and fills and such.
MARK: Okay.  I’m excited by this.

Tuesday, 8:50pm - Text Exchange
ROB: I sent you what I accomplished tonight.
MARK: I got it.  I’ll download it tonight and play around.

Wednesday, 12:30am - Email
MARK: Okay, so I put some work in here. […]  If you wanted to go Mumford and Sons on this, I missed it completely, and we can just scrap this.  If not, read on.  […detailed rambling of parts recorded…]  She’s a jaunty tune at a spirited 2:30.  The ball is in your court now.

Wednesday, 1:15pm - Text Exchange
ROB:  Listened to Jolene before I left the house.  I like what you did I might add some more guitar fills, but that’s it.
MARK:  Cool.  I’m glad.

Wednesday, 6:45pm-7:45pm - Email
ROB:  […more detailed ramblings of parts recorded, mixing…] Getting the balance on the mix was a bit rough, but I think we’re in a good place now.
MARK:  Awesome.  I’m good with this.  Want to post it?
ROB:  I’m giving you the honor of the post.  I’m not sure I could explain what just happened.  Or why.


What happened here is that we relaxed after recording an album by recording a 70’s punk-esque cover.  Why is because why the hell not?

the Really Good Pot Roast - We’ll Come to You (A Theme for Jules)

I have a theme song, and it is brilliant.

genuinely crying, though, about how much I love this. and you guys. thank you. ♥♥♥ xoxoxoxo

Glad you enjoy your theme song.  We had a good time with this one and it came together fairly quickly.  More themes to come.  Stay tuned…

 

I’m reposting this because I accidentally sent an older mix to Jules originally.  Now that she’s updated her post with the final version of the song I figure I’d fix ours.

Easily our favorite of the theme songs.

We here in the Really Good Pot Roast hope you get everything you want this Christmas, no matter how simple or not safe for work.

Happy Holidays,

-Rob and Mark

Last year, we released a holiday album, aptly named ‘A Really Good Holiday’.  This being the last night / day of Hanukkah, we thought we’d celebrate with a song.  This song is about our experience as kids in the 70’s and 80’s, and the lack of things to do on Christmas.

If you like this track, pick up our holiday album on Bandcamp for Pay-What-You-Like, including free!

And we’re working on a new album now.  Stay tuned here for some previews and more updates from us in the coming weeks!

Rinse & Repeat - The Really Good Pot Roast

 

I’ve been exploring the > 2,000 tones in my Line 6 PodFarm looking for interesting new sounds I could use as inspiration.  This song started when I found a few new distortions that I really liked.  As I was noodling around with the 2 new tones, the lyric, “Work, dinner, sleep.  rinse and repeat.  It’s the same old grind.”  Everything else came from that line.  My idea was a song about that feeling you get at the end of the summer when you’re at your desk at work thinking about the good old days when you had summers off in college.  The lyrics just wouldn’t come, so I sent it off to Mark and he really came through.  The lyrics really tell the story I wanted to tell but couldn’t.  He also rewrote the bridge (Which I had labeled as “Shitty Bridge is Shitty” in the project file).  I’m pleased with where this song ended up.

Twenty-Four Pounds - The Really Good Pot Roast

Ever since Dr. Cranquis posted this article we’ve been messaging with him back and forth about how best to tackle it as a song.  Not a groundbreaking movement, but a fun little tune.  This is our #1 song about #2.

Anybody have any more poop jokes before we move on?

Enjoy the pool!
