hey everyone, hope you’re gearing up for a great holiday season. we’re going a little nuts over here so check it out—

CDs are on sale! get yourself a copy of the new album, a raven has my heart, as well as black lab unplugged and passion leaves a trace3 CDs for $18! that’s half off! you can refresh your collection and have a coupla cheap gifts to boot!

as you may know, andy and i have had the chance to play live a lot this year. thanks to your amazing support of our kickstarter, our shows in LA and NYC, as well as the solo shows i’ve done in austin, london and dublin, we’re getting to connect with you all like we haven’t in years. and it’s awesome.

thank you once again for supporting us, for coming out to shows and continuing to spend your hard-earned cash on independent music. your devotion is proving that music isn’t just a commodity. when music becomes the new free-shipping, another trinket the big corporations can throw in the bag to help entice more shopping, then real music dies. you guys are the antidote to this attitude, and we’re really grateful.

if you haven’t visited the facebook page in a while, check out photos and video of our recent shows, etc. it’s becoming less and less possible for you to receive our posts so we’re hoping you’ll make the trek over to the page on a regular basis.

meanwhile, look for me in atlanta in january and hopefully andy and i will be playing another show in LA soon.

thanks again!

paul

black lab on house, m.d. c2011

December 2nd, 2014

i put this up recently for everyone who didn’t get to see it. the whole episode is worth checking out (peter gabriel sings arcade fire’s ‘my body is a cage’ later in the show), but nothing beats this opening. this is actually how the episode starts — no title, no sound, just the song and the image of the bull emerging from darkness. awesome.

November 10th, 2014

i had a great show in london last week — thanks everyone for coming out and being so generous. after so many years of wanting to come to the UK it was amazing to actually be there and play for you.

next up — dublin on wednesday, nov 12: the rooftop bar at the odessa club. tickets 10€ at the door (if you want me to hold a ticket for you just email your name and ticket count to contact AT blacklabworld DOT com).

doors at 8, singer/songwriter eloria opens at 8:30, i’ll go on at 9:30, play a couple of sets, then be around to hang out afterwards. it’s a beautiful room — 14 dame court, dublin 2 — and i hope to see you there.

i’m not going to be able to play in hamburg unfortunately so i hope you can make it over to dublin.

thanks to dave ivers and richard parsons for making these two gigs happen! (photo by mykey, http://mykeyday-photography.com/)

free mp3 of the month (& half-price sale)

September 17th, 2014

hey everyone,

check out the new free mp3 of the month, available now for download up in the black top bar — “underwater” from a raven has my heart. this is probably my favorite song from our new album and the one most similar to “this night” from passion leaves a trace.

in fact, buy a copy of ‘a raven’ now on CD and get ‘passion’ half off: 2 CDs for $18.

it makes a perfect gift, an easy way to replace a worn out copy, and a chance to get the new album (and its beautiful art work) in your hot little hands.

as always, we are incredibly grateful to you for your support of us. from the early days of buying ‘see the sun’ from us online to the recent kickstarter campaign, your willingness to spend money on music that you’re passionate about keeps us in the business of making music.

thank you so much.
