I resolve to spend way too much money on records, not enough time writing songs, and to cover John Waite’s “(I Ain’t) Missing You” live at least once.

Every once in a while we get to play with bands that sound like we should fit real well together, then I watch a video or two and think, “oh man, am I trying hard enough?” I find I frequently undersell myself, so fuck that business. HMBSMS’s videos are pretty priceless and the music is joyous. It also looks like they put on quite a show. I’m actually very excited about this show and to see what they’re all about (and then to steal all their secrets…mwahahaha).
I’m also excited about what we have going on, but none of it is ready yet, so you’ll see the same show you’ve seen since the cd release, but know there’s an underlying energy connected to all those things we’re just buzzing to bring you.
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister
w/All Young Girls Are Machine Guns
Friday, April 19, 2013
He’s My Brother She’s My Sister invite a broad range of colorful words to describe their sound: “flamboyant folk,” “psych-acoustic,” “desert pop,” “estranged and glamorous.” No doubt this is due to their melange of musical styles, both modern and antique; their eccentric attire and sense of expression, both sincere and theatrical; and, their unique instrumentation, which includes a rhythm section bolstered by a tap dancing drummer.
Brother and sister Robert and Rachel Kolar split vocal duties, with Robert on guitar and Rachel on tambourine. Their voices range from boisterous to introspective, from breezy to emotive. Lauren Brown adds full-body percussion with her fluid tap dance and simultaneous drumming. Oliver Newell plays stand up bass with joyous flair. Aaron Robinson is on lap slide, verring from nuanced psychedelia to American roots riffs.
Slowdown front room
This is the 4th song from Witness Tree’s upcoming album “Breathe In”, to be released on 05/31/13. This song features additional vocals by Rebecca Lowry (All Young Girls Are Machine Guns).
I had an obscene amount of fun recording this with the guys. Obscene. After my first run-through, all I could say was, “I wish I were in a rock band.”
Tiger - All Young Girls Are Machine Guns
It recently dawned on me that the only copy of Tiger I have online is the original before I handed it over to Will and said, “fix it.” So, here’s a solo version of the finalized product, likely the way you’d hear it at an open mic.
Please remember, as always, if you are moved to do so or happen to create a baby upon listening to this, Rebecca is a great name for a child.
Well, You’re New to Me:

Nicest Goddamn Band You’ll Ever Meet
Interrogated featuring @montyeich @backlineimprov @studio_gallery
Ehrmagerd. I mean, there are so many more faces than this that I can’t wait to see again, BUT I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THESE FACES AGAIN.
Don’t get me wrong, I love performing music with my band. I just, y’know, have a hard time not seeing all the kids’ faces all the time. No more month long stretches of shows all on Friday nights. At least, not until next December.
Tonight - All Young Girls Are Machine Guns
I (Becks) recorded all the instruments on this track, which, I suppose merely means I can play the sleigh bells a’ight.

Sometimes I don’t know what to think. Just when I feel most like the chips are down, The Reader puts me in this article alongside bands like Desaperacidos and Tilly and The Wall and The Mynabirds…good god almighty. If I didn’t question my ability to do anything other than making music, I’d juggle chainsaws right now because I’m actually one pretty lucky bastard.
