A little update about the Ribbons of Song happs around here:
Our bassist, Sam Snedeker, recently completed an amazing (brief) performance piece wherein he suspended himself by a rope from two trees, wearing red tights and body paint, surrounded by blazing kerosene torches. This was at a major intersection in our neighborhood at dawn. He (miraculously) escaped any legal repercussions, and was in good spirits following the ordeal.
Our electric guitarist, Chad Vickery, moved this week to his new home in Arequipa, Peru. He was able to record his guitar parts for our new record before he left, but his vocal parts are lost in the ether for now. He is already sorely missed.
We’ve auditioned a new electric guitarist, Kolin Smith, and he had his first rehearsal with us this week. We’re working on arranging some new songs together, too.
The Clouds Look Close Enough To Touch, a zippy burst of strummy summertime beach trip feelings, has recently been released on a compilation called In The Orchards of Osiris. For you Grand Rapidians, look for it in the bins at Schuler Books (on 28th or Alpine.)
We’re heading into the studio again this Friday at midnight to record a live take of Your White Hand with Dustin Anderson. Hopefully something amazing will come out of our hard work together!
