The solstice brought furnaces and vapor this year.

Most of the population of the United States doesn’t live in Minnesota because the winters are extreme.  In solidarity with the rest of the world, I agree… the winters are extreme.  However, this is the time of year that makes me want to move.  I can’t take the inland heat that squeezes the life out of the plain states… I am just not man enough.

In the last week, Tor, Chris, Karen, Ben, and I have tracked accordion, guitar, and vocals for the new record.  When Tor gets back from Holland we will finish up the percussion and Travis’ bass parts.  I wouldn’t lie to you, and I am telling the truth when I say the tracking so far sounds amazing.  Chris’ guitar parts and Karen’s vocals have been haunting me in my sleep.  I am so excited to finish the tracking so that I can hear the finished product.  I can’t wait for Tor to lay down some inspired, focused, and tasteful rhythm.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of Jeff Hanson.  I was sorry to hear of his passing, and I am sorry that I will not hear anymore new work by such a wonderful artist.
