Auditions have begun for the first Field Guides music video. This guy is our star.

The album is pretty much completed. now we just sit and wait for the vinyl to be pressed…

Phillip wrote this a while back, and I just came across it, and it got my eyes watering…

"Making a record. That’s what we were up to. Boo, Forever coming out…sometime. The process of recording it nearly brought me to tears on several occasions (mostly when Jamie was playing violin), so I may be biased, but I think we made something beautiful and resonant. It means a lot to me to be a part of this, to have been a part of it. There’s no greater palliative than making something that feels true to the lived experience of it—I feel this way about writing, too, even though it’s hard to get there in the end. That process is like a bulwark against whatever life is throwing your way. It’s your chance to push back against the limits of being a person.

I can’t wait for you and anyone else you know to hear these songs!”

A river ain’t too much to love… @fieldguides finished mixing our album this morning in Woodstock, at @theisokon. A bear knocked over @djamesgoodwin_snowflake’s garbage in the middle of night. It wasn’t Stanley, the raccoon; Dan assured us “he was raised better than that.” @phillippantuso and I got our feet wet in this here river today in order to climb onto that boulder you can see in the distance. (It was raining off and on and a fog hung here and there.) Someone with the initials MS had carved into the rock in 1975 and now the grooves are full of lichen. Our album sounds really marvelous. I feel a little overwhelmed and incredibly fortunate to know such talented people. I really can’t wait to share this thing with everyone.
