There’s been a good deal of housecleaning going on at Casa Skunkeye in the New Year. It is, by the way, unseasonably beautiful and warm outside today and I should be at the zoo checking out the baby panda Butterstick or something. Instead, I’m covered with dust with home improvements. That’s a one-hundred year old house for ya! I’m actually drilling holes in my floor and ceiling for wiring - muy frightening!
In my efforts to get more streamlined and more focused, I can’t help but get distracted by the treasures that I uncover and rediscover while sorting through piles and mounds of music and other ephemera.
I posted about ex-Cousteau guitarist and songwriter Davey Ray Moor and his solo project Telepathy some time back. (The old band was spectacular live the two times I saw them here in DC; I have yet to experience the new incarnation post-Moor since the album is unavailable in the US and they don’t seem to be promoting or touring here. Haha, and the Jacques Cousteau estate apparently got litigious and the outfit changed their name to “Moreau” for a while!)
Anyways, Telepathy is a lovely, moody affair and well worth checking out! I also wrote about Spanish chanteuse Jeanette in the same entry. I was unfortunately incapable of posting mp3s in the day so I'll catch up...
So here’s Davey Ray Moor with In Too Deep. (click, download)
Yeah, that’s about how I feel right now…
For good measure, Jeanette brings you Corazon de Poeta. (click, download)
Which I wish I had; I’m just a maintenance man these days….
