I’ve been thinking of a way to say thank you for making Battle Studies such a huge success out of the gate… I’ve also been thinking of a way to use tumblr as a means of posting some more substantial stuff… So here’s a very raw, live solo version of “Edge of Desire” I just recorded in my apartment as a way to show my gratitude to you all for extending my time in this amazing career you’ve helped me build.
I think if you were kind enough to spent the 13 bucks, you should get some free music for the next good while.
So here it is. A song about late night longing recorded at 3am. iPhone dinging in the background and all…(that’s how I knew the take was going to be worth sticking with, as the best takes always get interrupted.)
There is no reason to consider yourself a modern music fan if you haven’t heard this song from 2005’s Volcano. From the very early moments of the track you know it’s going to be unlike anything you’ve heard in awhile and it excites you for what your ears will continue to enjoy if you choose to check out the rest of this record and/or their other 3 full lengths and various EPs. Gatsby’s American Dream is a prime example of a group that somehow fell through the cracks of mainstream USA and the general population is worse off as a result.
Educate yourself about this band, they deserve more than they’ve been given.
“I always tell the girls, never take it seriously. If you never take it seriously, you never get hurt. You never get hurt, you always have fun. And if you ever get lonely, you just go to the record store and visit your friends.”—Penny Lane, Almost Famous
I want to break every clock. the hands of time could never move again. We could stay in this moment for the rest of our lives. Is it over now hey, hey is it over now? I want to be your last first kiss that you’ll ever have. I want to be your last first kiss.
RULE #23 If you’re going to speed, keeping it a solid 5 over the speed limit on highways is golden. 10 is pretty safe, but if you REALLY want to hustle, find another speeder or two in the fast lane and sandwich yourself in between them. BULLET PROOF.
