A lovely sad waltz for you:

Melancholy and mourning – this is another song from upcoming album. This one actually had radio play in a simpler acoustic form which, c’mon, is pretty cool.
Basic guitar and voice was recorded at my friend Lex’s studio. I added the bass and solos at 4 am one morning – sometimes it just pulls me out of bed – and Amazing Mike (see last post) laid down the drumming at my house. We’re just about to tear down and move to a new house, which means that this drumming is among the last things to be recorded here. Baking in another level of resigned sadness. Just the way things are sometimes.

I’m almost done with a new album, and I’m noticing a couple of interesting things about this whole artistic creation process thing. For one, it’s nice to see that with I’m getting better with each project. I feel like each one is a little braver, a little tighter, a little better than the one before. Another benefit is that I’m getting faster. Someday I may even have something like a regular blog update.
This latest project is less of a historical concept album (see Quarter Life Crisis) and more of a simple collection of stories.
The base track – acoustic guitar and vocals – were recorded at the utterly amazing Livingstone Studios in London, by the equally amazing and very entertaining Kevin Feazey. Seriously, I got to record in London. It was pretty much the highlight of my year.
Next, the drums were put down by my new friend Mike, who plays here in the Bay with Planet Booty. Now, I have not (yet) seen Planet Booty play in person, but judging solely from how nimble Mike was in laying down drums over an existing rough guitar track, I’d say that his live shows are bloody incredible!
Finally, I laid down the bass and other guitars on top of his drums, and Nastja stayed up until nearly 3 in the morning recording the backup vocals – no small feat when you have two small kids in the house!
I’ll put up more songs soon, as I finish them. I hope you enjoy!
