Below the waist

A wee little ditty that I began work on this past week to wile away the time while recuperating from a respiratory infection. Recorded the bass and synth parts Tuesday, pieced together the drum bits Wednesday, and added vocals late Friday. Dead simple and quite base, as the subject matter germinated from a bit of "lad talk" with my HIO cohorts. I also blame the meds (feeble excuse? Well, yes... ).

An aural pleasure

Another wonderful group has been brought to my attention via the fantastic Continuo: Amiina. Since their inception in 2004 this six-piece from Iceland have released two EPs (AnimaminA and Re Minore), two LPs (Kurr and Puzzle), several singles, and recorded with Sigur Rós.

A holiday video for a holiday tune

More pissing about on Labor Day. Simple vid cobbled together this afternoon for the latest ditty:

A holiday tune

New track finished in the small hours of Labor Day and added to the album-in-progress. Bass and classical guitar somewhat tweaked, and the tune's title was taken from James May's "folly". The end... for now.
