Another Song In The Can

No. 6 is about 90% done. I'll let it sit for a while and come back to it in a week or three. It came together pretty quickly largely because I had yesterday and today to work on it without much in the way of distractions. I went back and listened to everything I've done thus far. I like everything. It's turning out to be sort of a cross between DIFFERENT and THIS IS YOUR BOOK OF KILLS, I think, though where it'll go from here I can't predict. Don't really have any idea what no. 7 will be like. But it'll come to me when it's ready to reveal itself. It is odd...when I listen to something I wrote and recorded I find myself wondering where exactly it came from. The ancient Greeks, of course, believed that the Muses provided inspiration to musicians and poets and artists. I don't believe in Muses, but I often think songs come to me from somewhere beyond my brain.
