Last week I lamented not being able to keep up with the ever expanding Daytrotter sessions. Ditto goes for Hear Ya who have been releasing some excellent stuff this past year including last week’s session with Rhode Island’s The Low Anthem. Below is the one of the session’s highlights, “This God Damn House,” and the pertinent notes. Be sure to check out the companion video.
“…one of my favorite tracks from What The Crow Brings emerges in “This God Damn House.” Ben starts off with his alto horn while Jeff gets the feet moving on the pump organ. We were all taken by surprise when Ben stepped away from the mic to grab his cell phone. We started switching cameras from him, assuming he had pressing business that required an urgent text message. But then he grabbed a second phone and lifted them up as he whistled to create a spectral sound to finish the song.”
Head over to Hear Ya to grab the session in its entirety, plus videos.
