You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we have Gloop. In short, their music makes you want to punch stuff, which is great. They just released a brand new album called “The Tourist” — like, literally, it came out a week ago — and the song they perform for this particular episode is called “A Shrine Built For Two,” which is the first song on “The Tourist.” It is beyond great because they are beyond great. If you want to catch them on tour, you’ll have that opportunity throughout the summer — but especially this weekend when they hit up Harrisonburg and Charlottesville Virginia, as well as Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
Now, for more on Gloop, you can check them out on Facebook here and on Band Camp here. For more on Mystery Ton Studios, go visit Kenny’s website, which is radical. And for more on Gypsy Cab Productions, go visit Jordan’s website, and see how great he looks in a tie.
