It Only Seems Like Forever
Yesterday I made a list of all the half-finished songs I've been working on. They break down into two basic kinds which I mentally label "mersh" and "kamikaze." The mersh songs are straightforward, a little rootsy, immediately graspable. They're good. Then the kamaikaze songs are unconventional, challenging, spacious, seditious, moving. They're good. There's enough for two albums. Not sure what to do about that.
But a recent tour with The Out_Circuit fired me up to play shows. That's where it's at, that magical hour, not this tedious record biz crap.
