I’ve got a few sounds I’ve been meaning to share and just haven’t had the gosh darn time to do it.
For that I’m sorry. I hope we’re still friends.
Here’s what the sky train in Vancouver sounds like. It’s actually quite pleasant compared to the screaming tree/ripping sheet metal sounds of our beloved TTC. And you can see the sky all the time which is nice.
Here’s my upstairs neighbor playing trumpet last night while I ate dinner. It was really nice and I should encourage him to do it more often.
And since NIghttimer is out and ready to go, I’m working on a bunch of other more acoustic based stuff now, something for the lovers perhaps? Those who want to make serious introspective love maybe? I don’t know. Here’s something I had played around with a while back but started to force into shape yesterday. Bare bones for now but don’t you worry about it, I’ve got plans.
ALSO – Listen to this CBC interview with the legendary Leonard Cohen. I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone give answers that were more honest, humble, and thought provoking. He’s a real artist and human, and we as Canadians should be super proud to have someone as great as him representing us on a world literary and musical stage.
ALSO ALSO – Another Canadian contemporary legend in his own right, award winning author Paul Quarrington, had a very nice thing to say about our band the Outlanders. He came out to a couple shows and I may or may have accosted him and basically gave him an in depth interview regarding his novel writing and body of work when he probably just wanted to have his beer in peace…..anyway he said -
â€œThe Outlanders play beautiful and intelligent ethereal twang. I love the way the guitar and piano interact with each other, supported with care and precision by the rhythm section. The melodies are, in every sense of the word, haunting.â€
- which I think is really nice.
