So, a funny thing happened on the way to this week’s song: we recorded and scrapped an entirely different song before recording this one.

“Why, that’s insane,” you might say, and you might be right. But the other song was plagued by technical difficulties and it just wasn’t shaping up the way I heard it in my head, so we decided to save it for next week when we’d have a little more time to get it right.We’re really excited about that song… it’s gonna be good.

Anyway, on Thursday night after work, I wrote this song. We recorded it Friday, took yesterday off to go to ye olde Fenway Park to watch the Sox kick the Yankees’ pinstriped butts, and mixed the song this morning. And here it is!

See you in a few days, I hope, with the re-recorded OTHER song,

So, here’s the new song, “Big Zeros.” It’s a pretty different sound for us, but we’re excited about it. One thing that’s cool about having to do a song every week is that it makes you feel like you can totally spend a week doing some sort of new wavey, punk kinda thing, because… why not? You’re doing 52 songs, why not experiment and have some fun? And that’s what we decided to do. Please let us know what you think, if you’re so inclined.

See you next week, probably with something completely different!

Jen and I are hard at work on this week’s song. It might be posted tomorrow if we can finish the vocals, but we have a lot of harmony vox to record… so… maybe. I mean, Lost is on! We’ll see how it shakes out.

But I can tell you that the song is under two minutes, and it’s not like anything we’ve done. Ooh, exciting!

Hey gang! New song. Woo hoo! By the way, we are now a little past the quarter mark in this project. The year is flying by.

Until next week,

Jen is sick, and I’ve been on jury duty–so I’ve had to do my day job stuff at night. But, the new song is almost done. I’ve just gotta catch up on freelance tonight so we’ll probably post it by this weekend.
