win a black lab box set     #hasmyheart

June 11th, 2014

dear you,

in making our new album, a raven has my heart, we had to dig deep into who we were and what we wanted to do with our lives. we knew that only by tapping into the heart of what we were most passionate about could we get to something new and artistically exciting for us, the thing that would not just inspire us but keep us going through the tremendous struggle of getting an album made.

through supporting the kickstarter campaign and purchasing the new album, you have redeemed this excavation of ours into something new. a raven has my heart represents a reinvention for us, a reconnection with the deepest emotional processes of making music. we’re incredibly grateful for the opportunity to explore this new country and bring back what we found for you.

it’s also made us interested in what it is that moves all of you. i mean, who are you people? you listen to our music and send us money for it and tell your friends about us. some of you are very vocal, some of you are invisible, just supporting us in your quiet, consistent way over the years. we’re interested in who you are and what you’re passionate about. what is it that drives you in your life? what is most important to you? what is it that has your heart?

we figured we’d have to drag it out of you, so to do so we thought of a little contest. write us a description of what has your heart and post it to our facebook page and twitter with the hashtag #hasmyheart and the those of you with the posts we find most moving will win an awesome signed black lab box set along with other prizes we have leftover from our kickstarter (if you already bought a box set we will cook up something equally awesome).

let’s start a fire with this — we really want to hear from you. i know it’s a challenge to boil it down into a facebook or twitter post (or a freaking song lyric) but we have faith in you. it can be your child, your work, your marriage, your art, your dreams — whatever it is we want to know about it and we want you to share it with us. let’s create a big searchable motherlode of passion.

are you in? we want to know who you are.

    Not much for the Facebook thing, but.. Your request was moving. You have amazing music, it touches my soul in ways that most music can’t. Somehow your music captures the emotions that draw me back to that first kiss, the birth of your child, your first time in love, your wedding day, those moments that are dreamy and warm and worth remembering. The things we remember when we are in a nostalgic mood. I really don’t know how you do it… Weightless, this night, circus lights and more. I love the complexity and poetry of the lyrics.. Very thoughtful and deep, and not necessarily linear… Makes coming back to them interesting and fresh so much of the time.. Keep up the great work. You capture those truly special and memorable moments in life that play like a soundtrack for life.
    ” I wake up to the sound of bells
    A thousand girls in wedding veils
    But all I want is you, do you believe me?”

    That moment with the intensity of the vocals and music really delivers like none other, and delivers that intensity of the emotion, as if you want her to realize that with a thousand options, your crying out for her to understand you only have eyes for her. I want more of this, more intensity and emotion, the highlighting of the emotions of those truly great moments in life. It’s what makes Black Lab truly great. Keep up the good work, just bought a copy of Raven has my heart… No doubt it will be amazing too..
