For their 2nd Thanksgiving recording at David Wu’s studio – two years after the last one – justCUZ chose this parody tribute to our maternal grandmother, Inang. While keeping the same style of mix as their previous proper recording of “A Drop in the Ocean” (Rachel’s vocal on top of James’s acoustic guitar), Wu then layered a few more instruments on top of both interludes during post-production.
The result is a poignant recording that alternates between simple acoustic instrumentation and somewhat intense electronica.
“It’s the two sides of Inang,” says David. “Not obtrusive most of the time, but she has an intense underlying nature that is reflected in her intense love for her family.”
Rachel would, years later in 2018, perform this song live at Inang’s 90th birthday celebration.
