1 Part Greg Laswell, 1 Part Sara Bareilles, and Just a Pinch of Magic.

Wow. Two posts in one day? Someone must have a paper to write....

Yes, I'm putting off coming up with an answer to why Theron Ware fails as an intellectual and an aesthete. And Yes, I'm still in my sweats and I haven't brushed my teeth yet today. But my friend Greg Laswell (OK, my Facebook friend) sent me a link to this beautiful song he made with Sara Bareilles. It's called Come Back Down and it's the first single from his album Landline which is due out next month. Treat your earballs to this:

Don't you love that? Doesn't it make you want to get up in your house and do the kind of twirly dancing you only do when nobody but your dog can see you? Doesn't it make you want to sing way louder than you're used to singing so your voice cracks? Here's a secret: that's what all of Greg Laswell's music does to me. I am his biggest and best fan. Biggest And Best! I feel like if he knew Rob and me in real life, we'd probably hang out a lot. Like at the Bright Spot, eating eggs florentine and talking tunes. We could swap stories about our scrappy terriers and talk about our favorite ambient percussion trends. Short of having all food taste like cupcakes, few things would make me happier than that. I wonder if he needs a drummer...or a penny-whistlist....

We have been following his every move...wait, no... his music for several years now, but I'm worried that not enough people are doing the same. Now you have no excuse.

You can snag a free download of the song on his website here.
