Greetings from me n the Blue Dragon! I'm out in a little town called Powell River, British Columbia While the Universal Lovers are all hanging out in Halifax living their lives, playin' in all their cool bands, being beautiful n such.
I wanted to share the remainder of the songs that we had recorded together in Halifax. Some of these tunes were intended for Gold Shirt but didn't end up fitting. Others were experiments or demos that I did alone in my apartment while procrastinating on homework, or getting a job.
It's very beautiful here. The ocean and the mountains and the big trees are all around me, and the air is very clean too. I'm planting lots of trees and making lots of money so that in July and August I can travel across the US for the first time and play songs the whole way through!
Until the next album is released in June, I hope these songs can help you out in some way or add some energy into your life. After Gold Shirt, my happiness-inspired creativity dried up a little bit and so I was left to embrace the sad-side some more.
In a lot of ways, these songs represent a search for balance in a confused emotional space. They don't fit together really, weren't intended to atleast, but it didn't feel right hiding them away either. So here they are, left to wander the internet until they've found their new ear homes.
Thanks for listening, wishing you all big hugs and big strength in these wild n crazy times.
See you in July!
released April 4, 2016
