Beautiful blue sky.

The moon out, which I thought was a sure sign of the night. Perhaps it's a sign of a beautiful day as well.

I have been working very hard on our next record, but things are coming much slower than usual. I have been fighting with myself how it will sound. Lyrically, I have much to work with. Pages upon pages. None of it really fits together yet but it will with time. Patience will be the key this time around. Magnolia came almost instantantiously. Musicians fell into place and the puzzle fit together with little thought.

I am coming to accept this drought.

Today on my walk, I have started to understand it visually, at least. When I close my eyes I see it. It's just not there yet. Patience, patience, patience.

I'm so close.

Songs for all.

This blog needs purpose.

So, that means free music. I sometimes record songs straight on to my computer. I'm sure we'll have some of our live shows recorded. I'm sure we'll scrap a few songs, but they will still be listenable. All these things will be on here.

To show that I actually plan on doing this, here is the title track from our soon-to-be released record, "Magnolia" acoustafied...or acousticvibe? Something like that.


It can also be listened to on Myspace (ick, don't do it):


I might put up a techno version of this song to, but I'm afraid my band might kill me. I swear it's cool.

What a beautiful day. The sun out, which is such a rare treat when you live in Seattle. I found a new trail near my apartment, which I never knew existed. I walked on it for hours, back and forth. Right when you think you love Seattle, which I do, you find something like that which makes you love it even more. Those little things cancel out the rain, for me at least. That's how I feel about this band. New little things surprise me with each practice, each song, and it just seems like everyone is starting to flow. This band came together so randomly, yet it's become something that feels so natural.

Below are a couple pictures from our first show, at Tractor Tavern. Talk about an amazing first experience, words cannot describe.
