"River" is a song that Joni Mitchell recorded with piano and released in 1971.
This version is very different to that and also quite different to most of the tracks I produce. It makes a lot of use of synthesised sounds and processing.
A couple of years ago Two Coats Colder were asked to perform some Christmas songs at a folk club and we did this with guitar, bass and mandolin accompaniment. When Anna and I decided try recording it, we were not sure of the key or tempo and so I set up a synthesised track for her to try until we found what worked. This is what evolved.
