long days, curse words, and bright eyes

yesterday we recorded:
-"One Day Like This" (a song by Elbow that we perform with a badass young lady called Laura who normally fronts a Mariachi band with her voice and violin)
-an awesome reworking of an NPR theme by Kath.
-a short-but-sweet reworking of the same NPR theme by me.

t'was a busy day/night! lots of fun, quite a bit of silly video'ing, perhaps none of it suitable for posting.

been thinking a lot recently about asking fans to suggest songs they might like to hear us cover/rework/whathaveyou...?

or maybe in the interests of time/energy/slashmarks-in-blogs, posting a list of songs we'd like to cover and having y'all choose. =)

so... if we were to cover a song by "Bright Eyes", a song from the record "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" or "Cassadaga", what would a listener suggest?

speak up!

  1. This listener would suggest recording your own music, because I know for a fact that at least three of you are excellent songwriters. I am hearing The Mamas and the Papas "Make Your Own Kind of Music" in my head as I tell you this, but seriously. Please. I want to hear the songs that are in your heads.
