Hey this is Peter. I’m in the studio with one of my favorite bands, Eyelids. As you might remember I produced their last record, “Or.” This recording is a super exciting experience because the lyricist is Larry Beckett who is not only a published poet but co-writer of many of Tim Buckley’s greatest songs. He’s written a bunch of new lyrics for Eyelids and it’s a tremendous record. I’m really excited to be involved.
You can catch Eyelids on the road this February—including the last show of the tour which will be at the 40 Watt with our favorite home town pals Drive By Truckers. And Larry Beckett has a great new book of poems called “Amelia Earhart” that is out and available as well.
As for myself, I’m going to go into the wild for a while. I’ll be writing and preparing for a bunch of stuff you’ll hear about next year.
