We are working on a new EP! Some of you may know that we are expecting a baby in early June (...whaah? Yes). Because of this, we know that this coming year is going to be pretty nutty. With that in mind, we hope to get much of a new EP written and (hopefully mostly) recorded before the baby comes, with the goal of getting it released by fall/winter.
It may be flat-out madness to think we can do it, but we are so excited to give it a go. We already have sketches for five songs and probably more in our souls, so we'll see what comes out.
These are pictures from a storm this week here in LA. It's pretty rare to see such a lovely sight here. Growing up in New Mexico, we had rainbows and thunderstorms a-plenty, but here it is a rare treat.
Inspiration comes by a different road for us on every album. We have our ears perked and are listening intently for clues. "I hear you singing in the wires..."
We'll be sharing the journey of writing this little bundle of love here on the blog and on our Twitter page. Thank you for coming along, once again.
A big thank you those of you who purchased our music for the Haiti earthquake relief drive. We will tabulate and get that money donated as soon as we have the final info from CDBaby.
It should be noted that every CD at CDBaby (and digital downloads over $8.99) for the next two weeks will have the $1 donation promotion, so now is a good time to get some great new indie music like Jane Siberry's latest album or the new release from Trespassers William, to name a few. We know you have probably already given in different ways, but this is just another option out there that could help.
To fill you in, every year we record a couple of songs just for fun, to thank you for being our fans. This year, we decided to do a few Muppet songs, so we went with "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon" from Sesame Street and "Saying Goodbye" from The Muppets Take Manhattan. Both songs are written by the incomparable Jeff Moss.
Fun Fact: "Saying Goodbye" marks the first Endless song with David sharing lead vocal duty. We got pretty silly and it turned into a Piaf-tinged French chanson. Very fun.
We wish you wonderful holidays and thank you again for your support.
Enjoy this beautiful and luminous video for "Lit From Within," directed by Bob Blunden of Bath, England and commissioned via Radar Music Videos. We think it captures the simplicity and minimalism of the song beautifully. We hope you like it!
