So, we’ve been doing some recording in the past few months, and hope to continue with that trend. We decided to give you guys a little sneak peek at one of the tracks we were working on: Shoeshine. It’s a track that was written last late fall/early winter, which is surprising considering its nice summer chug. It’s a quick song, clocking in at under 2 1/2 minutes, a trend that is following our recently written material. We seem to be focusing on tightly constructed songs that focus on a particular rhythm and don’t meander too far so as to leave the listener in the dust, checking some other song out before finishing the task at hand. Kind of reminds me of Twain’s quote: Sorry for the long letter, I didn’t have time to write you a short one.
Anyways, the point I’m trying to make, is that we’re working on some new recorded material. Planning on releasing a second EP after HiveSongs.
Reminder: we play June 15th at the Brillobox – hope to see you there.
We’ll also be playing at the end of June, the 26th more specifically, opening up for Pokey LaFarge at Club Cafe. This’ll be a helluva show. Real friggin excited about this one. Pokey is on Third Man Records, the label Jack White started a while back in Detroit and now in Nashville, TN. Whiskey drinking, needless to say, will easily be an encouraged activity for the night’s engagements.
In other news, the Whiskey Holler is working on recordings for some new tunes.
