Taking a hiatus from tumblr for the purposes of trying to make that post Sweet’s Mill calm awesome feeling last as long as possible and to attempt to get some recording done. If you see me and I don’t have an EP yet, yell at me or something.
I love you! You know who you are, I think.
I’m hooooooome! (insert Calvin and Hobbes pouncing/tackling picture here)
The only thing that hasn’t gone well this Mill in terms of things I wanted to happen was that Darcy from the Get Happy String Band isn’t here so I can’t seduce her and bring her back to 7th Ave House to hang out with everyone. :c
I feel like I’ve sorted out a lot of the relationship anxiety I used to have.
It’s really encouraging how simple Kacey Johansing’s music is to play.
It sounds so good, and it’s really accessible in terms of learning. I literally picked up a guitar for 5 minutes and suddenly there’s one of her songs, learn’d.
The strength of that type of music is largely in the arrangement of it, I think. A string section and tons of vocal harmonies and awesome attention to texture are what draws me to that stuff, along with the lyrical side of things.
Wow, I’m not much good at doing things today.
I got basically no packing done for the Mill.
Well, I guess I’ll be likely leaving tomorrow afternoon then. At least I’ll get to the central valley when it’s cooler, though. Forecast says 97 degrees f during the day, aghh. Lots of ice water and cold things would be nice.
I can’t get Kacey Johansing’s “Many Seasons” anywhere but amazon.com and that makes me sad.
I wanna buy it from her directly! :c
