Hindoo House

I've been trying to quit smoking for the past couple of days.  As a way of occupying my mind, I decided to do a fresh install on my laptop (wish there was a way to not make that sound as nerdy as it is).  Unfortunately, I somehow managed to delete a year's worth of samples and demos/sessions in the process.  I'm blaming the vision of dancing cigarettes as the source of my troubles.  This song is one of the things I'd been working on, the mp3 was sitting around in an email I sent to a friend.  Since the session is gone, I figured sharing it with you would be a fitting funeral.

This is all coming off a little darker than I intended. I'm excited that a year's worth of stuff is gone, it's liberating.  The things that will get made next year will be better, I'm thankful to have a fresh start.  Happy Thanksgiving.

Mix For Domino Radio

Collage by George Kalivas


Twin Sister spent last winter in the Hamptons where we rented a house to write and record an album.  Rent is surprisingly low in the offseason, and we managed to get ourselves a beautiful house from December through March. While the experience was fulfilling and wonderful in many ways, the emptiness was also devastatingly isolating at times.  The house we lived in was tailor-made for summer parties, and I would often daydream about what life would be like out there in June or July.  So, this mix is my imaginary Hamptons summer, which I will never actually get to live. No big deal though, I bet weeks of endless excess with New York yuppies gets old very quickly.

Massive Attack - Blue Lines
