Weekly Beats 2024

Weekly Beats 2024, week 1 - 'friday party' 

Several years back, our good friend Maurice told us about a weekly songwriting/ recording challenge he had been participating in called Weekly Beats. This is Emily's 6th year participating (!), and after seeing/hearing what a life-changing practice it has been for Em/ Maurice/ so many others, I decided to give it a go this year. I've got some loose ideas on how i want to approach it, but mostly just going to follow the inspiration & (try to) keep it simple so i don't burn myself out. ๐Ÿ•Š

I made a slow-mo video of me preparing & tracking the first song and i'll share that below. The video description also includes some gear/ process details if any of you fellow nerds are interested. I do want to shout out this beautiful guitar — a Century Guitars "Clydesdale" made by the guitar boss Chris Jury. This was an early xmas gift and i am absolutely in LOVE with this guitar.

*I'm planning to post a simple video each week to document the process, so feel free to follow my jwh youtube page if that's something that interests you. Ok!

we start over

Our song for this year's Jon Solomon Marathon Radio Show on WPRB is live now on soundcloud. It will be set to free download till new year's day, after which it will be streaming only. 

Big thanks & love & hugs to Emily (extra vox), Billie Howard aka Akosuen (viola & violin), and Gary Gahan of Spanned Canyons etc (tenor saxophone). And of course to Jon for doing what he has done for THIRTY-FIVE years now. It really does help to feel less alone. 

And thanks to all of you for listening and caring about us and the music we make together. It was very meaningful to be able to play a few shows this year and to continue to share these songs with you. We love you and will continue to love you. ๐Ÿ–ค

BIG CMO SALE

Just a quick signal boost for the BIG CMO SALE, which includes our records Leading Up To (on orange or black vinyl) and Unreliable Narrator (black vinyl). 

In the words of Comedy Minus One: 
We need to clear space in the “warehouse,” so from now through Tuesday (11/28) every Comedy Minus One title that’s still in stock is on sale. 

Single LPs are JUST TEN DOLLARS and double LPs are reduced to $25! 

Don’t know if we’ll ever do this again!
