october’s single: XXX

Oct 16 2012

another month, another new release from your favorite underachievers.  this one’s a song called ‘xxx’ that i wrote a few years ago.  we’ve always loved it but it never seemed to fit on any of our records so we just kept holding it for our inevitable country record that never materialized.  long before they were shovels & rope, cary ann hearst and michael trent were just two of our uber-talented friends playing in their own bands and making great art.  one rainy sunday morning they came over to my apartment (now the site of hello telescope) to record this vocal.  if memory serves cary ann had had a long night and was a little hoarse and dare-i-say-it hungover.  but she sang one of the most heartbreaking, intimate vocal takes i think i’ve ever heard.  michael jumped in on the ‘ooooh’s at the end too.  it was a cool moment and a reminder of how awesome it is to live in charleston with so many talented and inspiring people.  anyway cut to 2012, we basically gutted the whole song except for those ooohs and cary ann’s vocal and started over.  if you like it i’m going to write a series of songs with similarly controversial titles.  potential candidates:  ‘full frontal’, ‘soft-core’, and, of course, ‘logjammin’ (featuring former autobahn singer karl hungus).

thanks for listening–

    When there exists lack of this element, someone feels completely
    worn out. If you are trying this before she’s really excited and has stopped caring what’s happening to her,
    you might just turn her off completely, therefore it might not
    be described as a bad idea to evaluate it out with her in advance.

    I’d rather watch Ron Jeremy which’s not to imply much on her
    behalf co-star.

    I think everything published was very logical. But, what about this?
    suppose you added a little information? I ain’t saying your information is not good, but what if you added something
    to possibly grab a person’s attention? I mean octobers single:
    XXX | Slow Runner is a little vanilla. You ought to
    glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to grab people to open the
    links. You might add a video or a pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to
    say. In my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
