NATURAL THING Poi Dog Pondering Full Length Album: * 1999
"Natural Thing" is the sound of PDP in the summer light fire of re-invention. Again.
The lyrics get thrown in the fire, and the music rises higher.
"At this time in my life I felt like music was so much more expressive than words..." said Frank Orrall, "And I just wanted to let the music speak." "Rather than traditional song writing structures like; "verse / chorus / bridge " etc., We just let the musicians be musicians and play. Martin and I followed where they went and made the song fit their intuitive structure.... The instrumentalist was the conductor, and the songs just wrapped around that cosmic shape."
"Also at this time in my life lyrics were not coming to me and so I just felt like lyrics should be short and to the point. Set the stage and let the music talk to the listener in the sound of the soul. The arc of emotion in "Octavio / Beautiful to meet you", Spend my life", "Diva" and "Tracery / Tana dery Na" literally pull at my heart" say's Frank Orrall.
