Intimate Objects, Confidence, and what happens next?

Intimate Objects was actually my first full solo release back in 2013. Barring two songs (“Like A Broken String” and the original version of “Brakes”), I wrote and recorded the whole thing over the span of a week. Two of its songs became Pneumatic Girls tunes (“A Team of Bumblebees” and “Near Misses”) and “Brakes” has been refined for the album I’ve been working on most recently.

I’m starting to view this as part of the process of writing – a flurry of semi-improvised ideas that evolve and later emerge as a tight, cohesive piece. I’ve never really known what my process is, and generally have considered it to be somewhat random (or maybe even chaotic).

This new album is going to be called Confidence. It is the result of a song cycle that actually began way back in 2000 with a Tascam four track. 15 years as a span of developing work seems like an awfully long time, doesn’t it? Still, that’s where we are.

And with that, I also understand that a new cycle has begun last year. I don’t know where it will take me, though. Not yet. Actually, I think I’ll let it surprise me as it tends to do.
