Back in 2005 this dude named Devin Davis took a job as an engineer at a recording studio in Chicago. That gave him the access to equipment needed to record his own album, which he did while working mostly alone at night. The finished product was called “Lonely People of the World, Unite!” and it isn’t a classic by any metric I can think of. But there were some songs I really love on it and “Turtle and the Flightless Bird” is still one of my favorite songs of all time.
When he sings “”We may not live up in the sky, where the air gets scared when the planes go by / But you can hop up on my shell when we crawl across the highway”? That gets me every time.
I can tell my brother loves me. He brings me back some Mississippi Mud when he visits the South. Thanks, brotato.
Heads-up penny on the sidewalk right before my run. This is probably going to be an awesome day, you guys!
