I obviously should have posted about this sooner as the date has already come and passed, but due to being rejected at the US border for a multitude of reasons, I missed the showcase show for Tell All Your Friends PR. I'm still really bummed out about this, however I should be gaining my US citizenship very soon which means I'll be back in your wonderful country again in no time, hopefully this time without being detained and fingerprinted for two hours. Nothing like being treated like a domestic terrorist 100 yards away from your own country.

Foxes in Fiction - Along (2nd Version)
This is a really simple version of Along from the Three Songs for Ryan EP that could almost be a demo of the original (it’s not). I recorded it in about 20 minutes earlier tonight. I’ve been trying to strip down a lot of my songs to their core elements lately due to a potential video session I may be recording for La Blogotheque. This has kind of forced me to freak out and reexamine all my songs. Also, pardon the electrical clicks contained all over this recording; the mixer I use is sort of fucked up a keeps doing this to every single track that I record into Ableton. This one mishap (apart from me being broke) is pretty much the reason why my output has slowed lately. Regardless, enjoy!

Foxes in Fiction - Tell Me Why (Neil Young cover)
I recorded this several months ago on a particularly nice summer morning at around 7 AM to my reel-to-reel tape machine. There isn't really anything fancy here, just a single take consisting of acoustic guitar and singing but I'm fairly happy with how it turned out, this has been one of my favourite songs for years and I always half-dreamed of recording a cover of it. I hope you like it.
