I am back in home waters, have unloaded the Overload suitcase and have just put on Joe Henry’s new album, ‘Blood from Stars’, that I picked up from the good people at Basement Discs in Melbourne. This afternoon has turned on the perfect weather for Joe Henry… grey sky, swirling wind, threat of rain, and the new album is sounding mighty fine. Blues that plumb the subterranean depths of the human psyche.
Here’s a taste of what I am talking about – Channel by Joe Henry.
Had a blast at Overload. Sheish and I played our hearts out on Saturday night alongside tap-dancing poet, Jenny Toune (yep, you read that right, tap-dancing poet) and Sean M. Whelan & the Interim Lovers… but more about that soon. Big love to all the Overload organisers for putting on one helluva weekend. Make sure you keep tabs on the Overland blog to stay up to speed with all the Overload news.
