New (Old) Tracks: ‘How It Never Was’ / ‘Out of the Hive’

Here are two newly rough-mixed recordings of hitherto unpublished songs. Both songs were written years ago, but haven’t found the inside of your ears until now…

How It Never Was –

(drums: the fabulous Kristin Mueller; acoustic bass: the excellent Jay Foote. Recorded partly by Kristin and Damon Whittemore at Tritone/Godelstring and partly by me at home)

and

Out of the Hive –

(everything played & recorded by me at home)

Two Songs Beginning With L

Thursday Feb. 13 a double single, Two songs beginning with L, will be available on Bandcamp (here). Song one is a revised version of ‘Listening’ (a 2010 song from City of Oblivion) in a more electronic style; Song two is ‘Learning’, which was originally inspired by Joy Division’s ‘Disorder’ and PiL’s ‘Public Image’ (now that you know that, it will be obvious, I think), but somehow came out more cheerful than expected. Both tracks feature guitar by Michael Lawson and bass by Gina Marie Rodriguez. Ethan Donaldson co-mixed track 2.  You can also stream them on Soundcloud here and here.
