Both tracks were recorded while living in Abingdon. And, while I loved living there, these songs are (SPOILER ALERT!) depressing as hell. So, clearly, not indicative of my Virginia experience. But, you know, strikes and gutters. Good days always outweigh the bad.
I remember though that when I recorded Mr. Tightrope Talks it made me want to record a whole bunch of tracks with this kind of vibe/instrumentation. And the fingerpicking on The Hole sort of renewed my interest in that style of playing. Me like rock roll, but also this style.
One of my favorite photos of all-time by Monica this month. And Jacob again with brilliant design. Enjoy!
