NY Times blog part three is up

I know, I know. You haven't heard from me lately, and I'm sorry. The future's looming large, and distractions have been keeping me away from DTBMMLF.

Meanwhile, the Times songwriting blog is up so you can go read that for the moment.

I'll be back soon, I promise. Thank you for your patience.

Yours is the *only* segment of that Times column that I can stand, because you actually go into the mechanics rather than dwelling on the "inspiration." I take a pretty dim view of artists spilling their secrets in public because there is little enough mystery left in this world as it is. (And have posted about this so follow the link if you're interested.)

Sorry about that!
I like the tune. I like the sparse version with the "upright bass". It's like Morphine meets Link Wray, Tom Waits and John Lurie or something. The bridge is a good part of the tune. It's kind of wanting to go to an 8th note kind of rock feel when it asking for sort of a more open kind of thing. ?? Anyway, it's a cool tune. Send me the session if you want and I'll put some upright bass on it. I have protools. It sucks but it's great.

CANCELLED - the new Bandcamp single by PETER HOLSAPPLE - released today, December 3, 2021

  Today, December 3, 2021, I have released a new single on Bandcamp entitled CANCELLED.  Just to be clear, the song is called CANCELLED. There was some question on social media whether the release had BEEN cancelled, which it had not, as it was just released.  Or dropped, if you can do that with ephemeral stuff like downloads. You can buy it here .  And you can watch my lyric video here . I hope you like it.  Remember I'm heading out on a house concert tour in March, so come to a show in your neck of the woods!
