My band, Colonies, just finished our new album. Here’s a song from it (“All We Have”). It’s got some ebow, some trumpet, some saxophone, some chain-and-bucket. And all the normal stuff, too. Check it out.
We’ve been working on this album for about four years and it’s strange to say it’s finally finished after so much time and effort, but it is. It’s done. And we’re really, really proud of it. Please take a minute to consider our Kickstarter campaign to get the album pressed on LPs. We could have just put it on Bandcamp or iTunes, but we all share a love of vinyl and frankly, it’s a dream of everyone in the band to have high quality LPs of our music.

Check it out and pass it along. Thank you!
Starting to feel like summertime in here.
Just now realized I was “tagged” in this photo from last year. Freshmen vocab lesson.
You ever get the feeling that you’re being watched?
May 7, 1959: Between the fifth and six innings of the benefit game for Roy Campanella, the lights at the Coliseum were extinguished and spectators struck matches and lit cigarette lighters as a tribute to the catcher, who was paralyzed in a car accident. “The flames winked like swarming fireflies in the darkness of the cavernous Coliseum,” The Times’ Frank Finch said.
"It was the meanest, most unruly, worst crowd I’ve ever seen at the Coliseum," said Chief John G. Degenkolb of the stadium’s Fire Department. "There was a gang element."
