I have come to the conclusion that insomnia finds good company in objects like a battered acoustic guitar. After suffering many sleepless nights I’ve often found it effective to lull myself to sleep by playing songs in my guitar. It was a little more than a year ago when I discovered that such an endeavor therapeutic for my chronic inability to sleep soundly. These are my favorites. I recorded them using my old tape deck and a 4-track recorder hence the term ‘lo-fi’. For those who find it difficult to sleep, it might be worthwhile exploring these songs that have always made me drift into slumber. Sweet dreams.
What’s interesting with my recent visit to San Pablo’s Lakefest is that apart from watching great bands, meeting and talking with really cool people I also got the chance to do an impromptu performance as DeathToPuberty. Here is a footage of my take on Bright Eyes’ At the Bottom of Everything. Big thanks to Jeff who also publishes Konspirazine and manages a really extensive blog called The Real Strength (I take that the title was inspired by Biofeedback’s song on the album Hardtimes ) that catalogs the Philippine underground music scene. Anyways hope you’ll like the song. You can also read more about it on The Space in Between
