Happy Thanksgiving

D. and I have been working on this song on his guitar and my cello. It leads me to the thing I'm most thankful for this year: the fact that we are able to live together in one amazing house. We don't need to worry about pissing off the neighbors or parking our bicycles in our living rooms anymore. Having a garage is a good thing.

"A Girl, A Guy, and a Graveyard" by Jeremy Messersmith (The Reluctant Graveyard, 2010)

By the way, the rest of the album is a solid corn casserole. You get what you're expecting, and it fills you up.

Wherever you are and whatever you do, have a great holiday.

Massive Attack teamed up with Hope Sandoval (of Mazzy Star fame) for "Paradise Circus" on February's full-length Heligoland. Then Brazilian Gui Boratto remixed the track.
