Sadie

May 2, 2010

I have a new guitar. Her name is Sadie. She’s orange. She’s a Wildkat. She’s a hollow-body. I love the way she sounds. Not a single guitar store in NYC had her. She had to be special ordered. I played many guitars trying to emulate her sound. Eventually, we drove to Kinnelon, NJ, where they had her at a mall. When I got there, she sounded exactly like she did in my head. It’s the best feeling in the world when your hopes and dreams match reality in that manner.

This is a song we did today. It’s less Southern Gothic than our usual stuff but I love it. Jared and I get to rock out at the end. The lyrics are a Lorine Niedecker poem. Listen to it with headphones (it was recorded via my laptop speakers which isn’t high quality by any means) A version of this song will be the last song on our five song EP, Plate of Fire.
