I listened to the Gentle Giant CD on the way to drop my nephew at the airport last night. The mellotron is an amazing thing--particularly when it is set at its most lute-like setting.
On the way home, I listened to the new Liz Phair. Although it marks a radical departure from her earlier work, it's rather likeable material--more than a bit like those roots Americana artists who arose in the very early 1980s, who imagined they would save rock through catchy pop tunes. She's followed an intriguing path--from trying to merge her sound with the odd Lavigne-isms on her last album to apparently seeking something in Marti Jones territory on this one.
My DiSFish music page crossed the 4,000 views mark. I received in the mail the 19th Century Methodist Episcopal hymnbook from which I will utilize materials for new songs.
I created a webjay--an easy playlist--of my music over at www.webjay.org. It's a sampler of the material on my last three collections of songs.
