August 29th, 2013Praying Mantis LP
Hello again World. Just wanted to let you know that we are still alive and are currently working on a new set of recordings tentatively titled Praying Mantis
These recordings focus on a cast of characters who live in a meadow across the road from the house where I grew up. They include, but are not limited to: a girl named Sally, a bluebird named Hank, a daisy called Daisy, an Earthworm Wally, a Christopher Cricket, and a praying mantis named Pellapetisimo. Hopefully we'll be finished and have the songs available by year's end.
Additionally, we are playing our first proper show in about 9-months, at Cafe Coco in Nashville, Saturday, September the 7th.
