Writing, writing, writing...

Played our final show of 2009 at Pete's Candy Store the other night (Dec 11th) and we had a blast.  Pete's has a great little stage (check the vid below), and the sound was remarkably good for such a small room. 

We'll be scheduling shows for the spring very soon, (if you have any suggestions for venues, please let us know). Until then, we're going to use the free time to write, write, write. We've already got a half dozen new tracks in the works, and hope to release a full length album by late spring, so be sure to keep an eye out for demos and such we'll be posting along the way.

Speaking for myself, the writing process is quite nebulous and I don't really know how to explain it except to say that I do quite a bit of pure experimentation and most of it is horrendously un-listenable. Some of it is just me playing with new chord progressions. Some is free form improv. And some is an experiment in translating ideas into phrases or just sounds. All of this is incredibly pretentious to talk about, so I'll leave the rest to your imagination. But I do want to keep a running journal about how this album gets written, so if you're interested I'll be updating this thread fairly often.

That said, I'm done updating it for today...
