“Russell was prolific, but was also notorious for leaving songs unfinished and continually revising his music. Ernie Brooks said that Russell “never arrived at a completed version of anything,” while Peter Gordon stated, “his quest wasn’t really to do a finished product but more to do with exploring his different ways of working musically.” He left behind more than 1,000 tapes when he died, 40 of them different mixes of one song.” -(via)

Arthur Russell – This Is How We Walk on the Moon from Another Thought, 1994
I’m so far away. One moment there. One moment there. Moving me up. Every step is moving me up. One moment there. One tiny, tiny move. It’s all I need… and I jump over.

Arthur Russell – A Little Lost from The World of Arthur Russell, 2004
Cause I’m so busy, so busy thinking about, kissing you. Now I want to do that without entertaining, another thought. I’m so unfinished. Our love affair. A voice in me is telling me to, run away.

Arthur Russell – All-Boy All-Girl from World of Echo, 2006
Kiss at the door. At the same time that they were letting go, they weren’t the same. And now they’re taking off…

Sleepercar Interview

Jim Ward “of Sparta, Ex-At The Drive-In” fame is in a solid relationship with his new band, Sleepercar. I  like to describe listening to the album “West Texas” like “sipping Maker’s Mark out of a spotty glass in a rundown bar while watching the sun go down over the shoulder of a bartender that calls you sweetheart and asks how your grandma’s doing in between crooked teeth and Marlboro reds”. A sweet and content experience, with just the right hint of pain and loneliness.

Austinites can checkout Sleepercar this Monday, November 17th at Mohawk with Morekestra (outside, starting @ 8:00pm).

Has Jim Ward abandoned punk and gone country? No, he’s West Texas, which is a little country and a little bit rock and roll…

…………………………………………interview…………………………………………

Stacie: Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?
Jim: usually wear slip ons, so when i have shoes with laces i almost never untie them-

Stacie: Would you consider yourself more of an introvert or an extrovert?
Jim: both- usually an extrovert, but i hate being in crowds so that makes me with draw a lot

Stacie: How stoked where you when your number one MySpace friend, Barack, won the election?
Jim: very stoked

Stacie: Does the song “A Broken Promise” refer to any broken promises in particular?
Jim: no-

Stacie: What’s one trait that you dislike about yourself at the moment?
Jim: i am passive/aggressive- and it sometimes makes personal relationships difficult, i try to control it

Stacie: Your musical endeavors progressed from hardcore, to a little less hardcore, to alt-country. Have you found a genre that fits well with Sleepercar?
Jim: i think sleepercar is pretty flexible in the genre department- we have been on quite a few different tours, it makes me happy…
