Some night dizzy folk tune. Turn the light off and play it!
Hey look at what someone lent me: two new dudes in the house, a banjo et a resonator guitar. I’ve been recording some ukulele and banjo and did some mixing. So far I have 10 songs for the folk album and 9 tunes for the electric record. I keep on working and concentrating. I’ll probably still compose and record a few songs for each album. Then I’ll choose what I’ll put or reject for the final records. Or maybe I’ll keep every track, I’ll see if every tune is coherent with each album. For me, an album is not a pile of songs put on one cd, but something that show (an) intention(s)/attempt(s).
I’m glad I have some time to 100% invest on this process. Composing and recording are among the things I love the most in life.

Here’s a live version of Damien Rice’s Rootless Tree, that he recorded for a tv channel. This song is from his second record, called “9″. It shows Damien Rice’s music at his best: cool songwriting, deep interpretation, for a very emotional result.
Ok, we don’t feel like listening to Damien Rice anytime, because it’s mostly sad songs and of course it’s not suited for any occasion. But listening to his 2 albums, it’s clear that there’s not a lot of stuff to get rid of – if any – because he can write and interpret songs with a real intensity and authenticity that you don’t find a lot anywhere else.
His way to build his career is also quite interesting and honest. He recorded and mixed himself his 2 albums, recording at various places and houses. Once again this “Do It Yourself” road that we’re used to hearing a lot these days but here there’s nothing to do with marketing and the way to sell an artist.
The production and recording work in “9″ is really better than what he did in “0″, but the songs in “0″ have such a quality that you soon forget about this lack of recording and mixing techniques that would have made it a “classic” album, so to speak.
