Look, listen and go nuts!
Today we celebrate that we have survived the worst part of the winter. Light is slowly returning and with the light comes the will to live and play…
For a plant like me that is good news!
“Why not release an album for Christmas?”, someone asked us. “With what?” , we responded. “Well, why not make it a ‘best of’ and include your unreleased tracks from older recordings?”, they suggested.
It’s madness, but somehow it makes sense.
So in six days we put together a little something called “Them Apples” (on the seventh day we rested). The title is naturally from the phrase “How do you like them apples?”.
We have been promised delivery of the finished product nov. 30. Fingers crossed…
One should never do something in this kind of a hurry. We will find mistakes. Some may be unforgivable, but with Christmas coming up, we had a window of opportunity and decided to be sorry rather than safe.To spice it up, we included the new song “A few good men” which is the first track recorded in our Warehouse studio
I give you “Them Apples”. One splash of nostalgia, one pinch of regrets, plenty of yesterday’s news and a little taste of what's to come.
1. A Few Good Men
2. New Day
4. Talk Though I
6. Mass. Ave.
7. You Are
13. Story 4
14. Bounce15. Strawtown
A broken drainpipe, biblical amounts of rain, mould spores, a band of decadent brothers…
The glass is half full.
It’s not even four in the afternoon yet but the sun is setting…
In an hour it will be dark. With the fog rolling in from the ocean and the humidity covering everything in a coat of cold misty unpleasantness there’s only one thing to do.
Hide in a warm room and write songs. That’s what I’ll do.
Our production speed right now is closer to STOP than SLOW. Latest in a line of unlucky events is a broken drainpipe outside a wall in our Warehouse studio.
Okej, that we'd like the recordings to have an earthy quality to them but we could really do without the mould.
Since our landlord is the nicest guy in the world but not one of the top five fastest, we have no idea when this problem will be solved.
Untill then: keep dry and warm!
Found an old picture from a session where we were trying to shoot something for a new poster.
This was one of the pics that did not become a poster. For good reasons. Unfortunately the one we finally chose was not that much better.
What a happy bunch!
