We’ve been working on adapting songs I wrote for my old band, Mavis, for the upcoming show at Bombs Away Cafe. Here’s a video I made for the song Empty House, off Mavis’s 2013 album Fossil Mountain. It was filmed with an iPad camera (that iPad was stolen in Metropolis, IL, ensuring that I will always remember that tiny city by the river).
As you can imagine, I had a lot of fun playing with blocks. The song was recorded during the hurried pre-finals 20-hour recording session that produced the Fossil Mountain album http://mavisband.bandcamp.com/album/fossil-mountain
Since finishing that, we’ve come up with some new parts, like a nice harmony line from Suzanne and a second guitar part for Charlie. You’ll have to come to the show to see!
