Max García Conover – “Abigail For A While” // Kerry Dean

This quiet folk waltz becomes a somber reflection,  evoked by the song’s sparse instrumentation.  The vocal duet match in melody and lyrics, accentuating the song’s duality and themes of conversation and reflection.  The song effectively becomes a perfect song for these introspective moments, whether you’re watching a sunset with a loved one or taking a slow, leisurely walk in the woods.


Shy Girls – “Trivial Motion” // Loes Heerink

Shy Girls has come to steal your lady. You better get out there and load up a bicycle full of flowers to win her back. But be quick… you’ve only got until the end of the song until he has her forever…

Karl Kling: The VINYL MOON Interview

The Burning Ear and Karl Kling go waaaaaay back. As an integral member of RAC, Karl has been on our radar both through his remixes and contributions to the live show. Watching him branch out into solo stuff was exciting to say the least. Perhaps the only thing more exciting was being able to feature one of those tracks,  “I Will Wait”, on VINYL MOON. Karl has been playing on the RAC/Big Data tour and I recently caught up with him before a huge LA show.
