Another of the kitchen ukulele sessions a ramshackle one take recording of He Doesn’t Know Why by Fleet Foxes. My rendition is a bit rough around the edges and not quite as tuneful as it could be, but I enjoy playing it. Hopefully you won’t be too offended listening! If you are, I’d suggest my ukulele cover of flume by Bon Iver
Bon Iver have become one of the most important bands in my musical life. I was lucky enough to see them live in October and without sounding too pretentious they raised the bar on live music in my world.
Since I picked up my ukulele I have been playing flume alot, it’s simple and alot of fun to sing. The acoustics in my new kitchen really help too.
In the spirit of just getting on with it and generating some content. I have been recording a few quick takes of some songs the last couple of days, my ‘kitchen ukulele sessions‘ if you will. The quality isn’t the best out there and the performances are a bit ragged, but I don’t see that it much matters.
There are more floating around on my youtube channel, which I will share with you, but for now, I thought I’d start you off with this.
Hope your week is going well fine people of internetland. Wanted to take a moment to share a track with you all. It’s by Rise Bailey Rise and is called Lipstick Girls. Beautifully haunting recording, looking forward to listening to on headphones this winter.
It’s a song I had the honour of contributing a few words for and I think it’s come together really well.
