The Dresden Dolls' Daytrotter Session
« on: April 26, 2012, 11:28:36 AM »

In Fall 2010 during their 10 year anniversary tour The Dresden Dolls made a stop at Daytrotter to record a session. For those of you unfamiliar with Daytrotter, they have a couple barn studios where they invite up & coming and indie bands to stop by and play a few songs on borrowed instruments and then release the tracks on their website with hand drawn artwork.

You may remember Amanda tweeting a picture of her & Brian at the session:

The first thought that went through my head when I woke up was "how many happy endings do you need to change your fucking mind?"

I love this session because it's raw and live, but not in front of an audience, so it feels relaxed and loose. Amanda's voice is ragged but there's a senses of intimacy. It feels like 4 AM at the afterparty and they've discovered a piano & drums in the basement.

I see it everywhere around me, especially with the popularity of web diaries, forums, and cell phones that take pictures.
I do not want to fall into the subtle trap of truly believing I Blog Therefore I Am.
