Hello everyone/no one, my name is andy and I have returned to the music blogging world with more of a whimper than a thud. I have spent the last few months rambling around the southwest and west coast, working at a summer camp and visiting family and friends in the bay area. But now I am back on the east coast in my hometown of Washington D.C.!
I am about to head back south for a little while to work on a farm outside of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Then I am headed to New Orleans to visit my dear old friend Jacob Mazer. I'm bringing some clothes and my guitar, so hopefully I'll get to playin' on some street corners here and there for money, like i have had the unoriginal fantasy of doing for quite a while.
This summer, my music interests consisted mostly of singer/songwriters. Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young, and Gillian Welch songs were in heavy rotation in late night singalongs around the campfire circle. There were a lot of oldies but goodies, but my main discoveries of the summer consisted of Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams, and the late bloomer choice of Bob Dylan. Yes, that's right, Dylan never really hit me until now, but it's all good because his records Blood On The Tracks and Time Out Of Mind are hittin' me like a ton of bricks.
I'll write more on these later, for now I have to go meet up with my sister. Good to see you all again!
