The Atlantic Ocean

_DSC8445-2

Revolution I Love You is Rob Lindgren  and Jason Reynolds and they are working in a new EP with 3 songs that will be called The Atlantic Ocean: “We’re just putting the finishing touches on the recordings now, and then we mix and master!”  We talk with Rob from this  indie band (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania USA)  and tell us why the new EP  will only be three tracks and other things about Revolution I Love You:

After releasing We Choose to Go to the Moon, we swore we’d never record another full-length album again unless we were already making our living at music and touring nationally.  It’s just not worth it.  Recording a full-length record is a long enough process; recording a full-length record while working retail or going to school takes YEARS.  We disappeared for a long time with we did the Moon record, we don’t want to do that again “

R,ILY’s single, “Cotton Shirts,” one of their Top 100 Tracks of 2012

Do you have a favorite Revolution, I Love You´s song or a favorite concert?

Yes, absolutely!  You would think it would be harder to choose one out of all of them, but it’s not! The title track from our upcoming EP, The Atlantic Ocean, is by far my favorite song that we’ve ever written or recorded.  I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be THAT GUY, insisting that our new material is our best, but this song just does something that none of our other material can even touch. And I don’t think I’m the only one; The Atlantic Ocean gets a palpably different reaction than anything else that we play live.

Maybe I’m so partial to it because I think of it as the culmination of something we’ve been trying to accomplish for years.  The way I see it, The Atlantic Ocean is the song that Graceful Steps (the first track from We Choose to Go to the Moon) should have been “

The title track from our upcoming EP, The Atlantic Ocean, is by far my favorite song…

Do you have a process to make music? or how do you make your music?

I think we have a stricter process than most bands, haha.  J (my bandmate) and I have been writing together so long that’s it’s become as natural as walking.  I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.

We never sit down to write a song from scratch.  We both collect fragments of ideas over time, recording them with memo apps on our phones’ (I love iTalk, I think J uses the memo app that comes with the iPhone) or in our home studios when we have the chance.  We’ve been accumulating ideas for so long that we have tons and tons of raw songwriting material lying around…so our writing process is more about making a pastiche of existing ideas than it is about coaxing inspiration.

I never much liked coaxing inspiration anyway.  It comes in fits and starts, and I don’t see anything wrong with embracing this”

our writing process is more about making a pastiche of existing ideas…

How do you feel when the band is on the stage?

I know this might sound odd, but I don’t see the live show as a part of the art of making music; the art is in recording, as far as I’m concerned.  I know that isn’t the case for every band, but I think it is for us.  The show, for us, is a chance to do a shot or two, grab a beer, hop up on stage and make some cool noises for our lovely friends who are kind enough to come hang out with us that night.  I think the most common thing people say about our live show is that it looks like we’re having a lot of fun, and they’re right.

So I guess the short answer is that I usually feel a little buzzed, lol”

We are in Mexico, so what do you say to Mexico about  Revolution, I Love You?

Aw man we’d love to tour down there someday!  Online, we’ve always gotten a really enthusiastic response from Mexico, whether in the form of blogs writing about us, radio playing us, or just interaction on twitter.  I don’t know what it is, but you guys are really nice to us and go pretty far out your way to reach out to us!  We’d love to return the favor and come down there sometime “
