Yes! I have finished the song for the upcoming poetry/fiction/art magazine out of New York (name/availability and further information coming soon) . Here it is.

Since this is a one-off song not meant for an album I took some liberties with it. Hope it both delights and disappoints... then I'll know I've done well.

I'll have a new song up probably tomorrow - it's for a poetry magazine being published in New York. Yes, a poetry magazine. I don't think the song will be on the upcoming album. You want to know this, I know.

I've been wanting to put up a new demo for a while, so here it is. I'll keep it up for a day or two.

I took it down - you're too late!

Just got an email from a French guy who made a sweet dance remix of Black Widow Falls (except he calls it 'Black Window Falls').

(I keep trying to post a link to the file but it disappears whenever I publish the blog. I'm confounded).

Fresh off a trip to IKEA, I now have a matching desk and bookshelf. I didn't plan on them matching, they were just the cheapest things there and happened to be of the same style - 'Flaarke' - which must mean 'cheap bastard' in Swedish. But now I have more space, a newly-formatted hard drive and operating system for my recording computer, so all systems are go for the new album. I am planning (honestly) on putting up some demos soon. Also I'm working on a song for a friend's poetry mag so I'll have that up by the end of the month.

In other news, City-State has found a new guitarist/keyboardist/tech guy and we are very, very excited about the possibilities. Looking forward to the Spaceland show on the 28th. That's August 28th, at Spaceland in Silverlake, at 9:00 sharp. Come early and get the good parking. You know you want to.

Well, the first show with City-State went well. I couldn't hear any vocals during the first two songs but once that was resolved I think things sounded good. We've finalized the date for our next show - Aug 28 at Spaceland. for info.

In LOP news, work on the new album continues, I need to update this site big time (but keep finding reasons not to) and a Japanese distribution deal might be in the works. This is cool.

Cool band to check out - Electric President.
