hello friends! i hope you're all out there successfully fishing in the stocked pond of life. things are good here. i'm starting to feel normal again. i've been making plans for later in the week. i don't have any shows this weekend. we're just doing a private show at the acl moody theater on wednesday. should be fun! i'm feeling good enough to start working on some new music. i've been itching to make some new songs, but i've felt like such shit the last couple of weeks, that didn't. anyway, i'll let you know when i do.
my guest for episode 342 is four-track wizard, chazz bessette from the band, silver ships! they've just released a new album, songs from a room that never moves, that is absolutely gorgeous. chazz recorded it himself writing all the songs, playing all the instruments and recording on to a four-track reel-to-reel tape machine. we have a fantastic conversation about coming up a four-track in seattle, math rock, moving to austin, touring and much, much more. i was getting sick during this conversation so please excuse me if i sound grumpy. i hope you enjoy getting to know chazz as much as i did. let's get down!
