Hope you’re all well. This morning I have changed a bit of the navigation and removed the SEM section having decided it’s not all that relevant to what I’m doing here. Plus while my posting is so haphazard I’m not sure there’s much point.
Yesterday I wrote my first song in years (aside from my lyrical work with RiseBaileyRise), plus it’s the first song written on my ukulele. it’s very chilled out and the vocal is deeper than I’d usually go for but I think it works. This was a one take recording made as soon as I finished the 1st draft of lyrics. I expect there will be some arrangement and lyrical changes, but here it is – Battles
Would love to hear from you with your thoughts on this, get in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
The first Rise Bailey Rise EP -One of Four- has just been released. Set to be the first of four EP’s over the next 18 months, it contains the songs – Brother needs a Brother; Gideon (which I co-wrote); I Know You Well and Racing Trains.
“Until you have it all you won’t be free” Eddie Vedder – Society.
Eddie Vedder’s Into The Wild soundtrack is fantastic and for me, the song Society is a real standout. This line in particular resonates with me strongly. That’s why when I stumbled upon this promo shot from the movie, I thought the two were perfect together.
The really sad thing about tonight’s uke session is that I am wearing the same top I had on for the last set… tut tut, it’s digusting…
Beautiful Freak by Eels was their 1996 debut album. It’s an absolute cracker of unrelenting misery. When I look back, a 12 year old listening to this album as much as I did cannot be possibly be healthy but nevermind.
Bit happier with this than the last two I have just posted, enjoy x
