LOST & FOUND: Discovered this ID amongst broken glass & trash in an old van while searching for parts at the junkyard. It's fascinating how each individual's life - no matter the seeming general indifference of the wider world and the manner in which we all sometimes so easily belittle or dismiss one another - is probably worthy of a great novel. The challenge, amongst the constant distractions, is to attempt to see and respect the gravity of the novel in real time.
Got lost on a morning jog through a beautifully overcast New Orleans this morning and found this photo, laying crumpled and aged in the trunk of an old oak tree. Who put it there? And why? It's fascinating to wonder about all the possibly tragic & epic things one can read into its minimal contents.
"Highlights include the above-quoted “Set it Off,” an anthemic rocker; bluesy stomper “Pay No Mind”; the spooky, droning “Tower of Babel” (both of those obvious showcases for his resonator talents); and the richly melodic, irresistibly catchy “Somewhere” that practically cries out for Mark Knopfler to cover. There’s also a six-minute instrumental, “Calabasas,” that’s so searingly cosmic it could almost pass for Electric Ladyland-era Hendrix diving deep into slide guitar territory. It’s all in service to an overall noirish ambiance, and Brother Dege expertly traverses the grey areas of life with an uncommonly assured step. Encore, please." - Fred Mills / Blurt Magazine
