This mindset perhaps explains why Strange Weekend isn't necessarily beholden to Remiddi's past adventures — and why he's so thrilled at how much the music has evolved in just a few short months, especially with the live addition of drummer/synth player Michael Wallace. "I basically compose and record very quickly," Remiddi says. "One song is composed and done in probably two days, roughly. But then because it's composed so quickly, you don't have time to develop it. So when you record it . . . it's like this raw material. But live, all the songs are changing, because I'm used to them much more. . . . The songs are slowly mutating. But that's what I like about this album — it means that it's somehow alive." ^
