For seven consecutive years, Serene Dominic took the RPM Challenge and wrote and recorded an entire album in the month of February. Now in this talk-and-music analysis series, Serene and co-host Steve Asetta musical director of All Is Forgiven? and the upcoming Dark Lullaby podcast (coming in season 3) give track by track running commentary through these eight home-recorded albums.
Our discussion continues on the rest of the Unnatural Blonde album, which was written to be a song by song companion to Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 classic Vertigo. Serene And Steve banter a lot about the movie and decide their Jimmy Stewart impersonations needs work. Other topics of discussion include unwitting percussion instruments and dangerous projectiles given for free at Yankees games, Kim Novak's Groucho eyebrows, that season of Dallas that was all a dream and of course, death.
Songs include "Pinch Me," "This Means No," "It Is What It Is," "Dress You, Paint You," "Can't Unring a Bell," "Up! Up! Up1 (In three movements!)" and "Overwhelming Dream."
