There was a snowstorm last night, but not quite the overwhelming world-ender some were expecting. Around 7 in the morning, my nephew Connor was born, and it's amazing to think that someday he'll get to hear the fabled "You were born in the great blizzard of 2011!" kinda stuff that kids sometimes get to hear. It'd be cool if he turned out to be some kinda young, stoic bad-ass and had a calm reply like "Shoulda done it in November instead." or something of the like.
"Florida Snow" is a new tape of City Center jams that have come up this winter. Two songs you may have checked out on this blog, as well as a reworking of the older song "Stones", as well as some icy drones, weirdly indie-rockish moments and other odd, cold sounds. There's 50 copies made, available at the same time as new tapes by Settle (a collab between me and Rob Theakston from Lexington KY) and the debut tape from Damned Dogs (glittery noise from Amber & me, not much like Swimsuit at all.) More information is available here.
