The 5-song acoustic EP, Hope & Anchor, will be available within a matter of days at www.cdbaby.com ...and then on itunes sometime after that. The full-length album, Last Dive in Town, is coming along. It always takes longer than we think it will, right? Add to that a certain akwardness to being here in the middle of a hot & sunny SoCal summer (palm trees, parking lots, beaches, Mexican food, sandals, traffic, overheating cars and general dusty-griminess) while working on a bunch of songs that mostly take place in chilly New York winter environs (snowfall in the streetlights, cozy bars, crunchy sidewalks, wool coats, bridges over icy rivers, late-night cab rides...and so on). I guess the weather will more resemble the songs by the time this album sees the light of day.
