If you are one of the folks reading this that has followed my music for the past few years than you know that my last release in 2011 was an EP entitled "The Vanishing World Part 1". Most of the time when you see a part 1, you suspect that a part 2 is to follow. Maybe a more optimistic part 2. One that answers some questions or resolves in some meaningful way. That may happen. It may however turn out to be the case that Part 2 manifests itself in the world as an absence. I just don't know. These things are part of a story that writes itself. I have never been at the beginning of an album and known at that time exactly how it would end up. I normally just give myself to the process of a recording and then let the thing itself take the lead. For me it is a kind of adventure. In the intervening time while the vanishing world is finding its way, "Different Blood" has emerged. A surprise for sure. Stories always spring from places unknown. So for now I have set aside the poison chalice of conclusion. "The Vanishing World Part 2" can now live its life untouched by me. I offer you "Different Blood" instead.
