Ernest Hemingway at his home in Cuba, the Finca Vigia, circa 1947

Tyto alba - 90 Miles

so a few days ago i went to a charming little Cuban restaurant with Dennis on Armitage called 90 miles. i was entranced by the little clave rhythms clanging through the summer air and came home to immeadiately work on a song poorly imitating such a rhythm. attentive readers might remember this.

anyways, for anyone who was curious this is the product of about 3 hours of musical labor. it’s really sloppy and rough around the edges but i think i grope at the idea of Cuban car chase in the 70s pretty well. go team.

such a perfect day outside…

… PERFECT TO BUNKER UP IN MY POORLY LIT BEDROOM AND WRITE CRAZY CUBAN 70s CAR CHASE MUSIC, GORGE ON YOGURT AND CHAIN SMOKE AT MY DESK!!!

look at my life.

look at my choices.

sob.
