Thanks to the work of film-maker Per Moritz we are officially a visible band! Lookee lookee, friends!
Here’s a little note for you all, or the two of you, of activity, the activity of yours truly. My general lack of activity on the wwweb since New Year’s sometime directly corresponds to a general abundance of activity going on in my head/appartment, on my wall/piano/guitar and so forth. My second album The Creek And the Carving is on the scetching-wall (below), 13-14 songs to be recorded from June onwards, and the release set to late autumn of 2015. The title metaphor is open-ended, of the broadest kind meant to be filled with meaning. Yet, it’s been stolen from a place specific, taken out of context from the work of anthropologist Anna Tsing. That is, though I was trying to be an intellectual when I was reading Tsing, the title of the record isn’t meant to be some hard nut to crack. From this point on, I’ll keep the few of you better posted with news of the progress, demo songs, bad jokes etc. Hello again!
As uncomfy as it may sound (and, to my experience, is), I’ve recorded some acoustic versions of unreleased songs in front of an imaginary audience (equals better than no audience). The three songs published, in addition to some ten more, will appear in a somewhat different-looking dress of sound on my upcoming record (mid-late 2015) “The Creek And the Carving”. Have a listen and comment if you like!
.. and Happy New Year 2015, let’s hope it’ll be a musical one!
