Everett and I are continuing to run songs and explore ideas for the upcoming record. Here we are in his home studio working on parts for “You, Me, and the Almighty.” At this point, most of our effort is focussed largely on playing the songs together, listening to them in a raw form, and then talking about structure and arrangements.
For this song, we’ll likely keep things relatively simple with guitars and possibly a slide steel. I’m keen to try out some unusual sonic elements to give the song a darker quality, and Bry Webb’s album Freewill is something we’re listening to for ideas.
