The Wishing Well Divers is a musical project I’ve been working on in my spare time for a couple years now with my friend Will and various other session players from time to time. Recently, we thought it might be fun to make a living room concert video of one of our semi-weekly rehearsal sessions. Featuring about 25 minutes of new original songs, recorded live to phone in my new living room with every bumb note and flubbed lyric fully intact, we had fun making it and hope you find some joy and inspiration in watching it, too. (Content Warning: Some mild saucy language in the in-between song banter.)
In hopes of supplementing my income while looking for work, I decided to release (via Bandcamp) a collection of recent lofi recordings I've been producing to wile away the stressful lonely hours since my divorce when I'm coping with separation anxiety over my kids and the stress of my recent personal financial crisis. "Lofi Hero" collects one-offs, demos, and various spontaneous rough recordings I captured on my mobile phone while developing songs for a larger studio effort with other collaborators that I hope to be able to release later this year or early next, depending on what the challenges of my financial hardship and other responsibilities permit.

Tangemeenie is back at work in the studio, producing a new indie pop album planned for a crowd-funded release [draft project - Kickstarter login required] as part of a larger multimedia project in the first half of next year. But before launching the crowd-funding campaign, we're planning to release and promote a single from the album in progress. Now we've assembled five rough mixes/preview clips of candidate singles from the new album into a SoundCloud playlist, and would like you, the listening public, to tell us which track we should release as our first official single. Take a listen, complete the opinion poll, and let us know what you think. We'll announce results after a couple of weeks of voting, once a clear winner emerges.
