I am very pleased to announce that you can now pre-order The Sleep You've Been Missing on www.sarahdonner.com
This will get you a pre-released copy of the new album as well as joy in the cockles of your soul. It will be posted by late Novemeber- weeks before the official release date!

It's Fall which I can tell now because my fingers and nose have entered their timely iciness which won't thaw until next May. Here are a few pics of Moo the LED keychain who likes adventures in New England. I went to a Cranberry Festival and learned all sorts of fascinating tidbits like the cranberry is one of only three commercially grown fruits native to North America. The others are the blueberry and the concord grape. If you want to fight about the persimmon, then meet me at the corner in two hours.
The Sleep You've Been Missing will be officially released Dec 20th at Small World Coffee, 8:30pm in Princeton, NJ. I'll release it in Boston, Dec 28th 9pm at The Burren in Somerville.
The NYC release will be in Brooklyn at Postmark Cafe, Jan 16th, time tba.
These times is tough. I'm not quite sure how I'll manage the manufacturing costs of the album yet. There are a few weeks to go before that bill must be settled. Sadly shows have been poorly attended due to our fancy American crisis. I bought me two bottles of my Gato Negro Cabernet Sauvignon which were on sale for $7! At least I'll be self-medicated while CatLady Records stocks plummet. There was rumour of a bailout, but then Ben Bernacki found out about my song Wallstreet.

Why hello. I am Mr. Crawdaddio. I somehow got lost from my woodsy pond and ended up at Sarah's stoop at work. Here I am in the bottom of an empty bucket. She was so thoughtful as to put some water in it so as to recreate my natural habitat. Sarah even gave me some chicken which I didn't eat because I'm a crayfish. Crayfish don't eat chicken.
So yes, Mr. Crawdaddio also known as Lunch to many of the passersby was delivered back to his pond in the back of a corporate campus.
While The Sleep You've Been Missing is in the safe hands of post-production, I am on the lookout for good Christmas covers for the 2009 winter EP. The winning contender is currently 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' on vocoder a la Imogen Heap. It's from my favourite dessert island movie Meet Me In St. Louis. Judy Garland sings it to her somewhat deranged cutie patootie sister Tootie in a hazy vaselined lens of sentimental goodness. If anyone has a Christmas song they might want to hear on this year's EP, let me know!
