September 28th, 2009 :: Art!

A few weeks ago I gave Pete a call to check in about our tour preparations and, after chatting briefly, he said, “Well, I can’t really talk right now. I’m taking the engine out of a Chevy S-10.”  Now, Pete’s a manly dude, but I must admit that I never thought I’d hear him utter those words.  I should have known, however, that it was all in the name of art.

Pete’s first solo art show opens on Thursday at Gallery4Culture in Seattle, WA.  Those of you in the area should definitely check it out.  Learn more about it here.

September 24th, 2009 :: AM Radio Lives!

When we were at Luther College earlier this month, we were lucky enough to be invited to swing by the studios of KWLC 1240AM to play some songs and discuss our views on Burger King veggie burgers. We are especially excited that Shawn Neary was there, too, and that we got to sing harmonies on one of his songs. You can stream it at KWLC’s website.

September 18th, 2009 :: Say cheese

A big thanks to photographer Lawrence Sumulong for shooting these photos of us after our concert at Grinnell College. He is putting together a series of photographs of musicians in front of this school-picture/department-store-portrait backdrop, and we are excited to be included.

September 16th, 2009 :: On the banks of the Wapsipinicon

Before our show at Luther College, we found ourselves sitting on the bank of the murmuring trout stream that flows through Pulpit Rock Campground in Decorah, IA with Shawn Neary (The Wapsipinicon, Cloud Cult). Pete and I were searching out harmonies for a couple of his songs, and playing percussion with the dried cottonwood leaves on the ground, while Shawn strummed the five nylon strings on his weathered guitar. A little ways upstream, a man chopped firewood. The breeze whispered in the limbs of the trees lining the babbling brook.

After a week in the car, this experience was the most pleasant of surprises.

With Shawn’s permission, I am posting a couple recordings I made while we sat by the stream.

Friends West

Cops and Caves

Also, here is a picture of a bug that came to its final rest on Shawn’s journal while we sang. “Friends West” is a heavy tune, and I guess it was just too much for the little guy.

September 14th, 2009 :: A band and a book

I’ve been a fan of this blog since I discovered it (and its corresponding email listserv) because of its devotion to the work of my favorite author, but I never expected to see Pete and I mentioned in one of its posts. (I always feel a little sheepish when people go searching for one of the most clear and important voices of our time only to turn up our mumblings.)

Thanks to Br. Tom Murphy for this kind and thoughtful review of Two Short Stories. I hope those of you who read it will spend plenty of time paging through the resources at this fantastic site.

September 7th, 2009 :: The most important meal…

We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So for this very important meal on the first day of tour, we cooked up some farm fresh bacon and eggs (pasture-raised by my dad).

We’re well fed and pumped for tonight’s show at Goshen College.
