mermaids


friends,

 

episode 465 has landed, along with thoughts of mermaids and lost time. tonight's opening song is from the norway house album 912 - which leads to a few long-lost songs from me, and some gushing over two songs i love.

 

one is mermaids written by nick cave.

 

the other is origin of love from the musical hedwig and the angry inch. (music/lyrics by stephen trask). please note: i wrongly attributed the songwriting in the podcast. john cameron mitchell remains amazing, but he didn't write the song... ;)

ghosts


friends,

 

episode 464 has arrived, along with songs from their self-title eponymous debut by kris hauch's band norway house. mixed in-between kris' songs, i also play a few of my own, and ramble on about how it feels to let go. especially when you don't want to, but have to. or, maybe more, how sometimes there's no other choice.

 

something like that.

 

you're invited to listen.

 

and there's more to come. please stay tuned.

 

love,

russell

if you want someone


friends,

 

episode 463 finds me at home, continuing to prep for a move, and enjoying the music of kris hauch (and his band norway house). this week's podcast centers around a few of my favorite songs from kris, and a few of my own that feel related.

 

subjectively, as i post this, tonight's songs seem to carry some hard-to-define sense of shared symmetry. or, maybe i'm making that up?? could be. whatever the cause, i'm happy this happened.

 

there'll be more soon. i'll keep you posted. i hope you'll listen.

 

love,

russell
