Hey everybody, in case you haven’t heard
El Turista is just $5 during Yep Roc’s Gimme 5! $5 CD Sale. Head to the Yep Roc Store to grab a copy before the sale ends May 23.
Spent a morning while on tour in Spain with the elusive Paco Loco in Puerto De Santa Maria. Myself along with Esteban Perles, Cayo Bellveser and Xema Fuertes cut 3 new songs “The Lonely Postman”, “The Warm Winds” and” Josh Rouse’s Worried Blues”. In the evening we did a set of the Violent Femmes followed by tapas at midnight. On to Sevilla.
The nice folks at my label Yep Roc are putting out a split 7″ with myself and The Autumn Defense as an exclusive release for Record Store Day! The AD’s we’re doing Bob Welch’s “Sentimental Lady” so I went with Linsdey Buckingham’s “Trouble”. It’s a cool collectors piece that you can pick up at fine indie record stores next Saturday the 19th.
IMG_4620-1Had the honor of having Howe Gelb stop by the studio to play piano on a new song last week. Distinct and classy chops. A few days later in Madrid with Nick Lowe, Jorge Drexler, Javier Limon playing Cruel To Be Kind. Lot’s of stories, sunshine, and inspiration!
I think there are a few tickets left….
