Chad Radford: Tell me about your new free Burdwurld digital EP?
Well, it was largely experimental given that it was my first time ever recording myself for serious, first time using Pro-Tools. I recorded and mixed everything by myself, which was a huge challenge and I play all of the instruments except for drums, bass and marimba on "Timid Young Ones," so it came out very personal. It's all pretty much pure, un-fucked with Adron inspo-tainment.
Who plays drums, bass and marimba on that song?
Drums - Jason Trammel. Bass - Jorgen Jorgensen-Briggs. Marimba - Simon Boyar.
Do you have a favorite song on the EP?
Hard to say. Maybe "You Could Be Anywhere." But I'm also really happy about "Little Face." Honestly, I'm really happy with the whole thing given that I really didn't know what I was doing. It was an incredibly challenging and educational experience. I'm really proud of the electric guitar parts, especially on "Little Face." I'm still kind of learning to wield electric guitar, it doesn't come very naturally to me, but the sound is such a good vibe.
Will this see a legit physical release?
Not anytime soon. It's possible that after my next LP, I might do another short EP and then have this one mixed and remastered by professionals and then release the two together on one physical disc. That would be kind of cool. But for now I just really want it to be free and universally available
So are you moving back to Atlanta?
Yep. August 7th.
What's the first thing you're going to do when you get here?
Drink a beer, throw water balloons at people and jump in a swimming pool.
Adron plays 529 on Fri., Sept. 11 at 529. Pistolero Also performs.
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
