"Its a wonderful Life" cover via Large Hearted Boy

Our buddies over at Large Hearted Boy posted an mp3 of our cover of Sparklehorse's "Its a Wonderful Life" from SXSW. You can listen here:

Going to the Carraige House in Connecticut tomorrow with my producer Phil to start mixing "Mondo Amore" Its really starting to come together! Yay!
In other news, since my tour with Midlake got squashed because of the volcano, I did get to go to Baltimore last week to play a streetfair and low and behold, ended up drinking vodkas with John Waters. WTF! It was pretty damn awesome and surreal. He gave me some great cooking tips. Apparently flank steak has no calories! hahah!
In the words of good ol' Socrates "Be excellent to eachother."

Iceland's on Fire

I'm so sad to say that due to the volcano in Iceland I will have to cancel my performances in Sweden at Kong and all of the opening gigs I was supposed to do with Midlake. My flight has been canceled twice already now and with everyone trying to get around there at the same time the flight prices are impossible. I'm talking black market prices. In the meantime I'll be working on rescheduling the dates for the summer hopefully. I was really looking forward to seeing all my scandinavian friends again and playing for you all and getting to see the wonderful sound that is Midlake, alas the volcano says no! ayyyyyieee. On the upside, I'll have a bit more time to finish my record sooner than I thought, so that's the good crust! If you're out in Holland or Belgium, please still go see Midlake, because they will knock your socks off. And I'll be seein you soon, don't you worry. Now somebody, please sacrifice a dang virgin to this volcano already!
