Lives we Lead

It’s good to be back!  We had no plans to let this blog languish for as many months as we did.  I hope the time off gave you the impression that we’ve been furiously working on a ever-growing quilt of songs, compositions and structured noise-fray that now bears a slow unfold over the months to come; that our little blog hiatus wasn’t a hiatus at all, or even a retreat, but a mission, a quest to quietly amass.

The Pretty Boy with an Ugly Face

I had a dream about this song once. It’s a dream I have from time to time, where the song changes, but the effect it has on my psyche I am sure is invariably the same. I will call it a “songwriter’s dream”, although as far as I know, this is the only supergroup-of-unknown-musicians-with-an-mp3-blog blog to mention such a thing: I am in a supermarket, or an elevator, and instead of having no clothes on, or finding out I am a dead fish wearing oven mitts, what happens is a song comes over the loudspeaker that is all but […]
