This week’s track is from LA based producer James Harmon Stack (Jim-E Stack).
For producer Jim-E Stack, a lot has happened since 2014, the same year he put out his debut album, 'Tell Me I Belong'. He left his home in Brooklyn, New York, for the sunny shores of Los Angeles, which in the last few years has emerged as a sort of ground zero for artistically ambitious pop-minded musicians. It’s the city where Stack, who was born James Harmon Stack, met Ariel Rechtshaid, the Grammy-winning producer who signed Stack to a publishing deal and who led him to HAIM, who then let Stack contribute production on "Want You Back," the lead single from their sophomore album 'Something To Tell You'.
This is what he said about the track “I Did The Best I Could”:
‘Francis and The Lights' It'll Be Better is one of my favorite bodies of work of all time. I always loved how unadorned and in-your-face his drums are in those songs. My drums on "I Did the Best I Could" are fully just me trying to do my version of an It'll Be Better track. I put in those guitar hits that remind me of "True" by Spandau Ballet. I added some chords that felt sweet and a bass line under it. It came out like a bittersweet love song’.
