Dear music writers of America:
I hope you haven’t submitted your Album Of The Year ballots yet … because, as 2015 approaches its twilight, the voice of the diddley bow is once again heard in the land.
Yup. Proud to announce the arrival of Night Train To Sideways as a name-your-own-price download on Bandcamp.
It’s the fifth Kurt Blumenau recording (I hesitate to call them “albums”), and the second to feature the unaccompanied growl of the diddley bow.
Why do I do this? Mainly because I like the noises I make, and think somebody somewhere else might like ’em too.
So, I raise a one-stringed (though not one-fingered) toast to somebody somewhere else.
PPS: Anyone sending me a screenshot of a Night Train To Sideways track playing in their iTunes, phone or other digital music outlet wins lunch and a beer if we’re ever in the same place at the same time, as well as my undying gratitude.
