Sterling-We saw Dean Rosenthal last night at that place in eastport with a keg that is tight. He sang a song about going to galesville. Take a right on Muddy Creek rd. Take a left at the Hardesty Funeral Home. Going to Galesville.
Annie and I moved in together. It's an amazing house in Annapolis. So, DC friends...don't be mad. But we're not moving there. This place is too good and there was no way to turn it down. And our total rent and utilities are less than what just one of us would pay in DC. Plus Annapolis is the tightest place anyway. This is the view of our pool outside of our bedroom.
Sterling I hope you're practicing toypedo in Santa Fe...
I just got Phosphorescent's new album, To Willie. And, as it sounds, it is a tribute to Willie Nelson. It is fucking amazing. It's so good. I'm not saying it's as good as Will Oldham's country tunes, but I might be. It's near perfect. Certainly if you like Willie Nelson, these have to be about the best covers ever done.
Also, I think I found a new song I'm going to use for Self Own. Here is an excerpt from a review: "Matthew Houck, aka Phosphorescent, isn't interested merely in demonstrating the depths of his scholarship and reverence for the forerunners of his craft with his all-covers tribute to the Red Headed Stranger, To Willie. He wants to wrestle intimately with the man's songs and what they're capable of communicating. In doing so, Houck proves himself an adept interpreter of Willie's piercing Christian grace, while indirectly revealing by the limitations of his scope-- the true remarkable human breadth of Nelson's artistry."
