early-winter new album blues

November 13th, 2013

i’ve been thinking about artwork, looking at images and fonts, consolidating lyrics from the various spiral notebooks that litter my studio on my computer in prep for layout.

typing the songs in has started to give me a feel for what they’re about. usually i try and write as unconsciously as possible, to let it just flow out and then go back over to make sure that the stories i’m telling are coherent in their own weird way. i’m a little shocked by what i’m reading and what it says, but that’s a good thing i think.

it’s pretty clear that christmas is not going to happen. andy has been really (like, deathly) sick and only now getting back on his feet. i’m heading to la next week and we’ll be working together in the same room, which will be wonderful. but it will also give us a few more weeks for spit and polish and the perfect mastering job, so we’re excited as ever for you to hear it.

more soon…

    Take your time, get (and stay) healthy, and keep at it. We can wait. After all, we’re Black Lab fans (and are therefore inherently patient).

    Extraordinary points. Sound arguments. Keep up the great work.
