Technical Difficulties

Apologies for the lack of a podcast this week. Sadly, the mixer I use to record the podcast has fallen ill so it looks like there will be a brief MikeyPod hiatus while I work on getting it fixed.

This is a great time, though, to point out the new handy dandy paypal donate button on the left side of the site. I do this podcast for fun and out of excitement for sharing new music with you, but unfortunately things like bandwidth, web hosting and equipment purchasing/repairs cost me money… money that I don’t normally have a surplus of. If you have an extra few bucks laying around, I could really use them to get the mixer situation remedied much faster. If you don’t… just hold tight and I’ll have another episode out as soon as I can!


Reuben Butchart's New Watermill Video

Those of you that heard Mikeypod 127 are familiar with Reuben Butchart and his residency at Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center.

Here is a preview of the documentary that filmmaker Mark Robert Jackson is making about the residency and the CD. The song is called “The Gull And I” which Reuben shared a demo of on the show. This recording is spellbinding, I tell you, SPELLBINDING! Just lovely. I really can’t wait for the release of the CD!
