Velvet Touch

not usually much of a jazz fan, but getting interested lately. thanks, publicly, to ben lumsdaine for the assistance.
also, scat is a hard thing to swallow. it's lost on me. unless it's roger miller.

this song/performance is sweet though!

here's some music i am feeling VERY excited about right now...

Milagres - Glowing Mouth

Tammar - Visits

Loren Connors - Red Mars

Sleeping Bag - Sleeping Bag

The Drift - Blue Hour

I'm waiting patiently (read: anxiously) to hear and look into the artwork for each of these albums as they're made available. that's the longest list of upcoming releases to excite me, maybe ever...

in other news, i'm headed out on tour with husband&wife this weekend. should be a blast, anyway, PLUS we're with sleeping bag. double bonus.

also, i've started tracking songs for a new Honest Weight record. It's very early and hard to tell what this is going to be like. i started with 13. in theory, i'm down to 12 now, with possibly only 11. there's still one more to arrange and record a scratch track for. i think it'll happen. everything is still very abstract and malleable, but it's beginning to take shape. i'll keep you informed as it's revealed to me.

thanks for reading.

The Bet Of Us For The Rest Of Us

i'm very excited and happy to report that i received an anonymous tip yesterday that told me about the first-half-of-the-year-best-of-list! not only did "bad weather" make the list at #7, BUT my good friends and jealousy-inducingly talented bros in Milagres took the much deserved number one spot!!

if you're not familiar with OTM, do yourself a favor and make a couple visits a week over there. you'll be introduced to a lot of great music that you otherwise may not have heard about. solid dudes running the show over there.
