Recording some vox at Chez Crouton

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.

Last night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, someone came on stage and very forcibly tried to kiss me, and actually did kiss Britty while she was playing. Another person from the tour was kissed while taking a photo… This tour is the first time something like this has happened to me, and I want…

While we continue impatiently and petulantly awaiting the completion of our inaugural physical recording artifact, here is an excerpt of a sloppy demo of a seedling of a sapling of an idea of a new song…

Four folks that contributed to the forthcoming Field Guides debut album will be performing in different guises tomorrow night (3/15) at our beloved haunt, Manhattan Inn!

Jamie Reeder (Tarantula, Helado Negro, Field Guides) will perform as Weird Mirror! Jamie is truly the best and we can’t wait to hear her new songs!

David Scanlon (killer BOB, Leverage Models) will perform with Alena Spanger (Tiny Hazard) and Angelo Spagnolo as Girls and God, a project we love so much! It reminds us a bit of Gastr del Sol (in the best way) but totally obliterates any further temptations toward contextualization and familiarization… The songs give us shivers while dropping our jaws.

And it’s also the triumphant return of BLUSHING! Two new pieces for a quartet featuring Jamie Reeder (violin) and Alena Spanger (piano). Benjamin Seretan and Benedict Kupstas each composed a piece inspired by late nights and public transportation and bodies of water.

Be there tomorrow! 10pm! FREE!

Field Guides will be comprised of several new faces (and limbs, and all the other expected body parts) for this show, since our beloved Phillip and André will both be elsewhere for Memorial Day weekend. :( But we will be sure to memorialize them, perhaps with cardboard cutouts on stage. For this exciting show—with our favorite band in Brooklyn, Tiny Hazard—the band will feature our pals Ben Seretan (BSG, Fayaway, Blushing) on guitar, Jamie Reeder (Helado Negro, Tarantula) on violin and guitar, Tim Simmonds (Ex Extract, Future Wife) on bass and guitar, and Elaine Winter on drums! Plus the old, familiar faces of Benedict and Maddie. That’s right: we are now a gender-neutral band! It’s gonna be great! You should be there!
