"The Dark" music video

I came across this neat footage from 1935 and it seemed like the right fit for this song. 77 years later these people are dancing to a tune they never heard.  Strange how that can happen.  I hope they don't mind.

Here is another preview.  "Other People's Photographs" is track 9 on the upcoming album.  This is one of my favorite tunes to play live with the band, and in some ways it feels like the heartbeat of the album to me.  We have played around with several versions and arrangements of this song, and I'm sure we will keep playing.  Here is one.  Thank you.  *dz

Here is the first preview of Summer of the Soda Fountain Girls.  "The Discovery of Popcorn" is track 3 on the album I had been thinking about the subject of this tune for a few years, but didn't actually know that it was going to end up as a song.  I had originally thought it might be a short animated film or something.  But of course a song was the answer because, well, I don't know anything about making movies, so.  I hope you enjoy.  Thank you.  *dz

Oh look: an album cover.  Oh look: an ALBUM!

Oh look: an album cover. Oh look: an ALBUM!

Summer of the Soda Fountain Girls is BBC's first full length album. It has been exactly 1 year since I met producer Michael Croiter at Yellow Sound Lab and he offered his beautiful studio and engineering skills to make this dream album a recorded reality.  12 musicians play and sing their hearts out on 14 tracks that walk, drive, dream, and swim you through June, July and August.  It's a road trip, a story album.  I have my own ever-changing story in mind, and I hope that you will find your own.  The only rule is that it begins on Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day.  Oh forget that.  There are no rules.  The album was written with the intention of being listened to from beginning to end - there is an arc, variations on themes and all that - but I realize that may be too pretentious and unrealistic a request, so I'll just hope you enjoy the tunes in any way you like.  You can get your hands on an actual CD (ooooooh) on Friday, February 18th at our album release concert (Canal Room, NYC, 8 pm. click HERE for tickets.)  It will be available on itunes, Amazon, etc. shortly thereafter.  Thank you.  *dz
