Inevitable Album Support Unplugged Set

Hello, everyone.

In lieu of going on a proper tour, the Gedankenband decided to put out a quick acoustic set of songs from the new album This Is My Circus, These Are My Monkeys, and then they left me to actually record it.  Thanks, gang.  It's live and ambient (so to speak), and includes the songs Say You Don't Mind, Replacement Song, and Knight In Faded Denim.  It's about as polished as you'd expect. The album is available for $4 on the Gedankenband Bandcamp site, though I have free download codes available for the needy.  Other work by the Gedankenband remains available to download from the same site at a "name your own price".  And all of our music is available for streaming on Spotify, etc.

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Leonard Cohen takes Manhattan

It's a tumultuous time. I've mostly been off of social media since the election, but obviously heard of the passing of Leonard Cohen. I only know his work through the cover versions of others, and I'll add my name to that list. Rather than his most iconic song I'll post a version of (maybe) a lesser-known one, using REM's arrangement and done solo and live.  I recorded it in 2012 but this is the first time I've released it anywhere (for good reason, perhaps).
