My New Glockenspiel

Here are some photos of me and my new toy “Angel” glockenspiel that I got for Christmas. Well, I’m not sure if it’s a toy – it sounds pretty good to me. But it looks like a toy.

You can hear it on my new song (I Am Still The Same) which I recorded this week.

It’s not exactly good-time party music, but, well, let me know what you make of the lyrics. They refer to a very specific scenario, but I expect they can resonate with a lot of different situations depending on what the listener takes out of them.

I’ve also made available on Reverbnation the original acoustic demo which I did in one take. It’s pretty rough, but I liked the feel and so, instead of starting again from scratch, I used it as the basis for the full version and simply overdubbed some more vocals, bass and electric guitars, as well as the glockenspiel and some toy sleighbells.

It’s only a rough mix and I may go back and do more stuff to it or even re-record the whole thing, but, hey…

    Thanks Maurice! Once we got the Angel it was hard to resist putting it on everything! My son played a nice figure on it in my latest original song, “The Sun, the Moon, The Stars” which actually makes the songs sound quite epic. Funny for such a modest little instrument! You can download that song along with my whole Some Hope album (for a limited time) at http://www.noisetrade.com/dccardwell

    Is there anywhere online I can hear your music?
