So, it’s been a long time. A very long time indeed. But here we are.
We thought of doing a studio diary youtube style. But then we sort of realised that no one on this planet would be interested in watching us tweaking MIDI and or switching gear in our pedal boards. So, it’ll be like in the olden days – you have to imagine the creative juices flowing etc. etc. Suffice is to say that the album is coming along neatly. We’ve had some major hiccups, mainly technical stuff, but these will be sorted in due time when finances allow.
It’s less than a month until we board a mid-sized plane bound to Vágar and then, after two odd hours in the air; fuelled by snacks and Okkara beer, catching the first bus due north to Klaksvík to basically just leave stuff at the hotel and then go straight to Gøta to soundcheck. So excited about these gigs. The live thing is always exciting, but these gigs sort of embody the whole essence of what this band is about.
Anywho, got some domestic maintenance to attend to…
We’ve been kind of shitty posting on this blog lately. Twitter and Facebook are to blame, we suppose. Nonetheless, Já has gotten its fair share of attention. Both good and… less good.
We played two awesome gigs in Stockholm in April. The last one in particular went really well and the new songs we’ve added to the set really worked out great.
That would be all for now. But things are brewing, be rest assured.
As our annual spiritual retreat, we are visiting Orkney between the 5th and 12th of March. If there is anyone that would be interested in us doing a low-key gig at a pub or in a living room setting, drop us a line at info (at) bolywool (dot) com.
Sorry for the lack of updates, but we’ve been crazy busy working our day time jobs, etc.
We are very glad to announce (albeit we’ve already done it on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) that we are performing our first gig since 2011 now on Saturday. Johan Franzén will be joining us on keyboards and electronics. This is pretty much a one off, but this constellation might perform again for smaller house shows or such. No live drums. We are really excited.
Já is almost done. We’re just waiting for one final contribution to a song, and then it’s just a few tweaks here and there and then off to mastering. It’s a really beautiful record. The songs are really sad, but they make me smile as they make me reminisce of how, when and where they were conceived, elaborated on, recorded and all that jazz. We’re hoping for an early 2014 release at any rate.
See you on Saturday.
