Mas Verde’s first project, “Scrumtrulescent”, released on July 17th, is a collection of songs written and recorded over the course of 3 years. There have been approximately 20 musicians that made contributions on the debut EP, including five drummers and a string quintet. The songs on the project go through love, self reflection, and looking for what the future can hold, even with the past feeling so present. The name of the EP comes from an old SNL skit with Will Ferrel playing the late James Lipton. In the skit he tries to describe something so beautiful and wonderful there is no word for it, so he makes one up. That word was Scrumtrulescent. That said, this a much better name than what the title was originally going to be, My Dixie Wrecked.
