this song was recorded for the record itself, with a full string section, and battled against "another year" for a while for the last song slot. i'll never know whether i made the right decision or not. but i love this tune. this song was recorded around the same time i was making the record, but at home in boston, in my bedroom on the night that noah came over and helped me set up garage band and a small mixing board next to my piano. it's the only song i've recorded at home, because the minute i came back to town and things were unplugged, i couldn't remember how to set the fucking thing up again.
My guitarist/synthist & horn arranger/conductor Chad Raines just put out an album. If you've seen us on tour, you know this: The sweet sounds of THE SIMPLE PLEASURE will make you dance your ass off!! Amanda Palmer
Kim and I go way back. She's played shows with me all over the world, and I was on a 7" record she Kickstarter'd a few years ago. Her new album is an electro-space-pop love letter to the cosmos. Amanda Palmer
