projections


friends,

 

episode 664 finds me wondering about three mysterious songs.

 

this is - projection

this is - mirroring

this is - abandonment

 

which reminds me of - this

 

i hope you'll join me.


the songs:

- motherless children have a hard time (night beach, 2011)

- this is how you love me (almost-finished, 2019)

- sober (lost demo, 201?)

 

love,

russell

roughly


friends,

 

episode 663 brings us to the end of a mini-series focused on the evolution of two songs. neither is completely finished, but they're close. i plan to give them a rest for bit, and (if they make it to my 2019 homemade project) i'll bring them back in final form.

 

i hope you'll listen.


tonight's songs:

- beginning with the end (almost-finished, 2019)

- that's not the moon (almost-finished, 2019)

- category 5 (demo, 2019)

friends,

 

welcome to july and episode 662.

 

this week finds me working to add e-guitar to some ongoing songs,

reflecting on a maelstrom of emotion,

and a new song...

 

everything revolves around absence

 

perhaps all these lonely

beliefs are feelings believed

you were sort of holy to me

and what could it mean that that could be?

 

i never knew who you were.

 

i been around, i been around,

i been around.

 

there's just a little hole in my heart,

see i wanted to be involved

it hurts to see the world from outside

and damn if that's not it every time.

 

i never knew who you were.

 

i been around, i been around,

i been around.

 

take it from me, i want you to know

talk me through it so i won't

and maybe we did a have a moment.

 

i never knew who you were.

 

i been around, i been around,

i been around.

 

this is - skeleton tree

this is - the boatman's call

this is - one more time with feeling

 

apparently, emotional storms are really a thing.

 

i hope you'll listen


the songs:

- beginning with the end (with guitar, 2019)

- that's not the moon (with guitar, 2019)

- everything revolves around absence (demo, 2019)
