Pigeon Diaries, and why not? Spend 17 minutes in any urban area and see if you don’t write a few yourself. Pete’s in Queens, Sam is in Brooklyn, Joe is in Marseille, Kevin’s in Oakland; we’ve got pigeons covered. But how to make music as a band? Its a bitch. We played the experimental card way back in ’04 on End Note with "Steinbeck Country" and "Joe", and now we are at it again. Using the tools at our disposal, we took another stab at what we did on Berlinesque. In this case, Joe sent us nearly half an hour of five contiguous pieces of music recorded in five different locations spanning the globe from China to San Francisco to Sicily. Pete and Sam laid a vocal and rhythm track to the suite directly, and Kevin made a multi-tracked pastiche without hearing what Pete and Sam had done… a sort of Exquisite Corpse. The result is a seventeen-minute amble through our musical downtowns, replete with skylines, equinoxes, cops, loss, beauty, hope, and of course pigeons.
