After recording his debut EP, Happy, with John Keane (R.E.M., Uncle Tupelo, Cowboy Junkies), Tedo Stone is releasing his first LP, Good Go Bad/Tedo played his first Daytrotter session this week, and PopMatters recently premiered the song “Taste” (http://bit.ly/11ZGRQu), praising Tedo’s “70s-esque, swaggering, peach fuzzy guitar rock” while noting a strong T. Rex and Strokes influence. We’re pleased to offer a premiere as well, for the title track:
Stone explains, “This song was one of the last we recorded for the album. I came into the studio with the idea for the chorus, and ended up writing and recording the music for the whole song without any idea of what the verse melody or lyrics would be. Usually when I write a song, I build the music around the melody, so this was a strange process for me. The song was originally supposed to be about my fear of death, but as I wrote the lyrics it took on a different meaning. It’s really about uncertainty and risk. Uncertainty is the scariest thing in the world, but also the most exciting.”
