hello friends,

 

episode 626 is here, and along with it, i'm happy to report that the recording process for my 2018 homemade project is complete. i'm in the midst of transitioning toward final mixing + mastering + (happily) re-discovering the songs anew in their mature form.

 

i hope you'll join me!


the songs:

- telegraph (don't even try, 2012)

- as a reminder, sorrow is perfectly ordinary (don't even try, 2012)

- clearly misplaced (don't even try, 2012)

 

love,

russell

all hands


friends,

 

tonight is episode 623 , and finds me amidst a third week of ongoing obsession with performing drums + (trying to) finalize my 2018 roster of songs. the process is going more slowly than i wish, alas, but i am making progress... ;)

 

this week's podcast features some songs from a few years back, + me wondering aloud about self doubt, how to find meaning, love, where motivation comes from, etc.

 

i'm honored you're here, and hope you'll join me.

 

the songs:

- planet of rock (cat eyes, 2016)

- i'm gone now too (cat eyes, 2016)

- mountain pass (cat eyes, 2016)

 

love,

russell
