January 16, 2011
It was a Sunday afternoon when Dave and Aaron came over to my place to help film this. I had only very recently acquired the upright in the corner (a hundred year old Baldwin that we moved extremely slowly and carefully from Panorama City to Echo Park via city streets, which surprisingly didn’t destroy its tuning too terribly). Thankfully we also have amazing neighbors in our building that didn’t complain about the excessive noise for the middle of the day on a Sunday (but really who would complain about such wonderful sounds?).
Typically I’d write something here about why or what I enjoy about the particular band being filmed, maybe throw in what I hope to be an amusing anecdote or reference a similar band, but in this case that seems a bit incestuous (and this already feels like too much shameless self promotion). So maybe I’ll leave that part to the few folks that actual read these little blurbs to comment on youtube. Anyway, hope you enjoy the songs.
Extra special thanks to Aaron and Dave for helping behind the camera — it was a bit odd not seeing what I was going to get, but they are both amazing.
