seems like it has been forever, it may well be... hard to tell. But things are finally getting back underway for us.
First, I'd like to personally thank everyone who took a moment to offer words of encouragement, kindness and sympathy to me during what was a terrible time. While I am not nor ever will likely be the same i appreciate it and still have music I want to create and share.
OK enough of the sadness...
We have had two rehearsals now with what is looking to be a solid line up. we have a brand new song underway and more in the wings once this one is in decent shape. I listened to the last recording and was half tempted to post it for listening that is how pleased I am with the progress from just two run troughs with the current line up. I think we will wait a bit though but once we have a decent stab at it down i will share.
the new line up comes with drastic changes in instrumentation and sound. I have moved from Bass Guitar to Bajo Sexto which is a fantastic instrument, our Guitar is now acoustic as well and of course the Fiddle remains. The songs are still frenetic and are most decidedly Into the Light Carol Anne material but they offer us a new dimension.
we are currently working on a song entitled "Teaching the Android to Feel Was A Terrible Idea: Now All He Does Is Cry" and the focus of it on a musical standpoint is in exploring the full range of dynamics that acoustic instrumentation gives us. I can see this one being a challenge to convey in a live setting but I am loving the way it is sounding... getting our quiet even more quiet is very exciting new ground for us.
At any rate we look forward to sharing more music with you all soon, and would like to welcome our new Drummer officially, he's been a great addition already and we are very excited to have his creative efforts behind ITLCA
see you soon
