Longtime Ball of Wax friend Darryl Blood (first heard all the way back on Volume 1, most recently heard getting feisty on Volume 38) has brought us “What This Means,” a sneak preview of his forthcoming album Arden Eevin Vol. 1, and an exercise in languid, understated beauty. I’m a fan of Darryl’s work whether he’s bringing the power-pop energy (as on Vol. 38’s “Gimme Some Soul”) or exploring subtler textures and muted melodies, as on this track. Either way, you know you can count on him to deliver a perfectly-formed, heartfelt musical statement in 3 minutes or less, bless him. Arden Eevin Vol. 1 should be out toward the end of the month; keep your eye on Darryl’s Bandcamp page!
