I just got back to NYC from the latest Hepnova recording sessions in Arizona. We finished two covers of old songs that got the Hepnova treatment. The first is called “En la plaza de mi pueblo,” a flamenco-tinged song from the Spanish Civil War, and “Märk Hur Vår Skugga,” an eighteenth-century Swedish song by Carl Michael Bellman about death and drinking. “En la plaza” features a guest guitar solo from American Flamenco pioneer José Alarcon.
The working title of the new collection is Transistor Troubadour. We are planning on doing some more covers as well as some Hepnova originals and to continue to develop the unique electro-acoustic sound that has emerged in previous Hep tunes like “You’re For Me” and “Again Tonight.”
