Mandolin Orange

Mandolin Orange – The Songs I’d Love to be able to Write . . . 

I’ve been having so much fun playing and writing music – and I’m really digging the NPR “Tiny Desk Concerts” – man, every damned one of them seems pretty superb.

Mandolin Orange is a new favorite – but watch out – there are so many superb bands I’ve never heard of before that are just awesome – just checking out all the Tiny Desk Concerts might get you through your lock down!

Big Thief – very interesting:

And a favorite of mine since her days in 10,000 Maniacs – Natalie Merchant:

And Nickel Creek – if you know where Newton, NJ is – you’d understand how I have some true hick / hillbilly in me. Hard to image all these years later:

And the Pixies! – OK – this could go on forever . . . . .

Art is Life – especially during these Covid-19 Times. Do yourself a big favor – turn off that News Channel and switch to the art and music channel – you will thank me for the suggestion!

Cheers,

  1. Or just cultivate any new hobby. I’ve been installing solar panels on the roof of my house, and I’m getting about 3 kWh/day now. Not a ton, but about 25% of my total electricity consumption. It’s been fun and not really all that expensive either.
