My subscribers may have received a flurry of e-mails in their inbox yesterday. I sincerely apologize for that! I was diagnosing a problem on my website that made the widgets appear at the bottom of the page, and the apparent solution was to republish every post. I didn’t realize that it would e-mail each post again! You’ll notice that the widgets are back at the side of the page, and now there’s a nice little Bandcamp store ready for action.
In the next couple days I’ll be making a more detailed post about the album, describing and explaining the stories behind the songs and the recordings used in the songs.
I posted some exiting updates to my album in progress: “Sonidos de Cuba”. I’ve added a song called La Cueva which is perhaps my most esoteric song ever. It features recordings from a cave near Vinales. Our guide was a talented whistler and I really enjoyed mangling and disassembling my recordings of him.
I’ve also posted some changes to Jinetero and Calle Musica. I’m excited to announce that more guests have provided their talents to this project. Matt Grant and Rudy Gill have layed down vocals on Jinetero; And James Kang helped out with his electric guitar.
