DAY ONE HUNDRED AND NINETY-FOUR
Mission: Write a song in as long as it takes Jonathan to take Lacey outside to pee before I fall asleep at the computer.
Lyrics: Written in 5-7 minutes
Recording: Less than 10 minutes (this includes deciding on how to sing it – the arrangement)
Phew! Done! And just in the nick of time! Spent a lovely day with Pearl and the Beard after a fantastic show at The Wassaic Project Music Festival: great people, fantastic bands and great weather (not to mention a night of camping!). I would recommend listening to:
She Keeps Bees: If Janis Joplin and Trent Reznor had a really attractive kid and gave it to The White Stripes to raise.
Annie and the Beekeepers: Really beautiful folk with cello, bass and guitar. Sweet and soft.
Spirit Family Reunion: Harmonies! Guitar! Banjo!
The Luyas (from Montreal): Kind of a like an inexplicable version of Innocence Mission on crack. Crazy live light show and instruments I’ve never even heard of before.
