Today was an interesting day of surprises both good and bad, but none of that matters because Cast Spells is coming to Bloomington tomorrow, which brings the company of one my favorite people, Dave Davison. Just to feed my excitement, some live tracks were posted on the Cast Spells MySpace tonight.
The tracks were recorded at Electraplay and feature Davison’s vocals and guitar along with some light percussion (bongo drums), and…a toy piano?? Anyway, the sound quality is beautiful so please go check it out!
Above is one of my favorite renditions of Cast Spells track “A Badge” performed with Sargent House labelmates Good Old War and Hezikiah Jones, recorded by IfYouMakeIt. Great assortment of instruments and voices that gives the tune a spiritual quality.
