Eureka!


The exclamation 'Eureka!' is famously attributed to the ancient Greek scholar Archimedes. He reportedly proclaimed "Eureka! Eureka!" (i.e. twice) after he had stepped into a bath and noticed that the water level rose, whereupon he suddenly understood that the volume of water displaced must be equal to the volume of the part of his body he had submerged. -- Wikipedia

It would appear we have made significant progress. The third set of test pressings have been approved by my listening committee (basically, Brent who mastered the record, James and Mark who produced it with me, and two other friends with nice higher-end stereo units) and I've signed off on it with the pressing plant.

So that means...

Eight to ten more weeks of waiting for the product to arrive. I guess that means I'm heading back to 30A in January empty-handed again. At least when I announce "I have a record coming out," I won't feel like a bald-faced liar.

Stay tuned. As a taste, here's what the cover's going to look like.


Cheery, no?

Woo-hoo! Congratulations, Peter.

Now then: what the hell's going on with the king in the bath? (Your visual humor is too subtle for me, I guess...)

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!

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.
