We had a really productive session at Fusion Bomb a week ago. Chris Ross put pedal steel on a song; I added trombone to two, and Scott K and I did acoustic and electric guitar overdubs. It's not our intention to complexify a ripping 2-guitar record too much, but I think we've added the right stuff to create a cool mixing palette for Tom Nunes. This is going to be a fun record, 34 minutes with alot of drive, plenty of full-tilt E major.

I'm not particularly happy hearing they're going to encourage big bomb home run swings from their young players. I'd rather see Hosmer and Moustakas settle in and hit for average with a more compact, aggressive approach. Smart base-running, stolen bases, situational hitting, and 35 to 40 doubles from four or five guys sounds better than watching these guys struggle taking big ugly cuts, trying to carry the team.

This Milton Nasciemento record is really amazing, so beautiful, reissued by Four Men With Beards label. If I happen upon a few more records this lovely in my life, I'll be blessed.
