Let Me Wear Your Overcoat

- As usual, the heavy lifting is going on at the olde Tumblr.

- I've written all 10 songs for the new Dead Oceans record.

- We go into Fantasy Studios next friday (!) to track.

- The new record is a collaboration with the Magik*Magik Orchestra

- It will be recorded by John Congleton (who I've wanted to work with for years)

- Jay and Ian Pellicci are assisting, I couldn't do this record without them

- Minna Choi, fearless leader of Magik and the arranger of the entire album, is a complete and total genius

- I am really fucking excited about this record

PS, I started a Tumblr for Tiny Telephone as well. It's full of gear pornography and shots of marvelous Marvin the studio cat being, well, marvelous.

This is kind of an insane bill. We tried to put together a diverse and challenging group of bands. Please buy tix here, I think the show will sell out.

As usual, I'm posting a lot more on the Tumblr. I'll add my "Sha-la-la" vinaigrette recipe there later today.

I'm writing everyday for the next record. I fell incredibly inspired right now. The city feels empty and the coming storm is about to shut this place down.
