Covers, Vol. 2, "Changes in the Gulfstream" and Album News

March: In addition to mixing and recording our new album and practicing for our April shows, we spent some time recording a bunch of other music, with help from some friends. First, two weeks ago, a few of us got together to record the second installment in the BOFSF Covers series (with Ian Wayne guesting on banjo):

Never Going Back Again (Fleetwood Mac cover)

Then this past weekend, we began recording a soundtrack for our friends' new web miniseries Changes in the Gulfstream (Astrolab Productions). Andre Matlock and David Moroney joined us for these sessions. These are two selections from the music we recorded over the weekend. After the debut of the series, we will hopefully release a soundtrack album.

True Skin


Also, the first two completed songs from our as-yet-untitled new album will be posted in about a week for download.

John Fahey

Looking way cooler than most were in 1969. All his music from this period is really haunting and amazing.

For Liebe of Liebe Hart

I wanted to post about a long time inspiration of mine, David Liebe Hart, because he has a new album out that you can download for free from his Facebook fan page or here. This album is a bit punk-styled, but his other work with main musical collaborator Adam Papagan is more in a folk vein.

Most people know David as the singing puppeteer from Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!, which is where I found out about him. But his cable access work on his show the Junior Christian Science Bible Show (which began in the '80s, I believe) and the Del Talk Show, as well as his three albums with Adam Papagan, is remarkable in its own right. I try to follow all of David's movements as much as I can. So I wanted to encourage you guys to download his new album. Here's a classic older song I like a lot, one which I have thought about covering:

The most comprehensive explanation of David's views about aliens available online is this wonderful three-part video from the Del Talk Show:
