“I tried to let you know I’m fine…”

Covers, Songs, Videos Comments Off on “I tried to let you know I’m fine…”

Here’s a sweet little video.  Ken Stringfellow (producer and musician extraordinaire, formerly of the Posies, R.E.M, Big Star, the Minus Five, etc.) covers The Long Winters’ “It’ll Be a Breeze” on a bench in Vienna:

Absolutely perfect.

It’s with great pleasure that I find out that the Long Winters are getting ready to release their fourth studio album sometime around Spring of next year. In an interview over at the Text of Young America blog (the blog incarnation of the awesome Sound of Young America radio show) lead singer John Roderick talks a little bit about the creative process behind the album and what fans can expect when it’s released.  Roderick also has a YouTube channel where he’s recorded some videos talking about the new album and how it’s coming about and coming together.

In celebration, here’s “Blue Diamonds” off of When I Pretend to Fall. I love the surreal Lynchian (totally a word now) intro on this one. “Where is my band?” “They’re eating ice cream!”
