• Sumjay – Bird & Whale Watching in Brooklyn Vol.2

  • Sumjay has raised his glass a second time to Bird & Whale.  Really nice of him to spread the word.  This mix has a healthy amount of hazy psychedelic rock and folk.  A lot of it American and British I reckon.  Sumjay recorded this live at the Middle East in Boston. He didn’t include a playlist so I thought it might be fun see if we can figure out the tracks on our own. See if Bird & Whale’s two-point-O  functionality can lead to any answers. If you know any of the tunes please post it into the comments, and I’ll add them to playlist.   If we get em all, I’ll try and post a zip file with the individual mp3s.

    Things are kind of insane around here.  Some things are kinda perfect and others are a mess.  I’ve met all these beautiful people and seen all these beautiful things.  They inspire me.  I feel alive.   But I have a crazy amount stress, and I feel like most everybody I meet has as much as me.  So it’s a pretty paradoxical existence. Sometimes I feel like I’m a minor character in this crazy play that is my life.  I just marvel at all that’s going on around me and occasionally make little asides to people that I think might listen.  Another little observation about this NYC theater is that there are a lot more extras.  I feel like I interact with about 30 new strangers everyday.  Once upon time it was rare I’d get a call from a number on my cell that wasn’t in my contacts.  Now, I’d say about a third the calls are from zip codes I don’t recognize.

    There’s been a lot of cool things going on with the release of my Brightest Solids – EP.  Seems like people are into it, so that’s been fun. If you haven’t picked up a copy, please do so.  I’m 24 carat broke so it’d be rad if you bought a copy.
    Along the theme of picking things up, I’d recommend reading Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson.  I’ve told a couple people it’s kinda like reading Jack Kerouac if he did a whole lot more drugs.  Beautiful language and insight into some very bleak situations.  Maybe a little like Larry Clark’s Tulsa.
    Bird and Whale got a nice shout out from Filthy Beats and Treats so I thought I’d return the favor and encourage people to check out what he’s got going on. Definitely a nice collection of musical knowledge.
