Townline Road

July 2010 to July 2010

website

Jason Eckerson and Anika Balaconis and I met up at Mark Temelko and Tina Post’s farm in upstate New York. We set up a tent and built a make-shift music space. We spent our days working outside and in the evenings we played songs and recorded them. Anika made some brushes for the drums out of pine needles, we had a big bonfire, we sang with cicadas and crickets and birds.
