Can't believe I went more than a month without posting but I've been in dental reconstruction hell, as well as very busy at work. That said, here's a few new and old things that I've been cranking in the Basement Studio recently.
I love Jill Sobule.
She is an amazingly talented musician, a wonderfully witty songwriter with lyrics that have made me laugh out loud and fill up with tears. I've played her on every radio station I've worked at since her Todd Rundgren produced debut and it really annoys me that most people have no knowledge of her other than her one novelty hit... which happens to be a damn good song. The one time we were able to link schedules for her to come in and record a Loft Session, I had to be out of the DC studios and in NY so we have never met in person, but she has an open invitation to record as many Loft Sessions as she wants, so I'm sure our paths will eventually cross. I will tell her I love her in person one day, but not in that way! After all, next week is my 31st wedding anniversary... I'm definitely damaged goods.
Jill has a new release, here's the description from her website "A Day at the Pass finally captures an ongoing collaboration between Jill Sobule & John Doe. It was funded entirely by their fans & w/ an all-star band, recorded live at The Pass studio on one fine day in Los Angeles." It even has a new "garagy-rock" version of "I Kissed A Girl"... as you may have guessed, I love the whole damn thing. Here's John & Jill covering Alex Chilton/Big Star.
