Rabbit's Shop

Here is some Sunday comfysynth for you. I imagine it playing in an RPG shop run by a rabbit that cycles through 2-3 bits of dialogue.

Dear to my Heart

It’s the summer you left home, and you’re thinking about it thirty-ish years later. Thinking of what that summer seemed to promise: a little bit of the shine is still on it, some of it got worn away by vicissitudes and whatnot, and some of it did what it ought to and got used up making a life for yourself.

This is one of my partner's songs, on which I played some of the instruments. It's full of wordplay. She recently uploaded her demo album, Nothing New, to Bandcamp. She's a smart and witty lyricist and a great guitarist (and ukulelist). And she plays reed instruments, which are a complete mystery to me.

"That One Last Rose" is an original, traditional honky-tonk country song, in the style of Buck Owens, Ray Price, Dwight Yoakam. Playing on it (and on the album it comes from, Last Rose) are some incredible, truly legendary musicians. Byron Berline, Dan Dugmore, and, on other songs on the album, Jason Carter, and Kristin Scott Benson. See my website for more information. [more inside]

Split the Daylight

I get no sunlight at all in the winter, at my job, so the day when 5pm includes ANY sunlight at all is a big day for me.
