138. IN YOUR DREAMS

 

“IN YOUR DREAMS” is the latest single by THE BLACK AND BLUE ORKESTRE.

In Your Dreams
listen on soundcloud

Continuing the band’s interest in bending and blending genres the song is a gothic love ballad with deep bass, trip hop beats and haunting western guitars.

The track was written by Tom DiCillo with crucial musical contributions from several guest artists.

Wayne Byrne wrote and performed all the lead guitar parts as well as the piano tracks. Wayne is a multi-instrumentalist who previously played guitar on The Black and Blue Orkestre’s 2014 track, Girl in a Million. He first crossed paths with the Orkestre when covering the release of their debut album, HURT ME TENDER, for the music press. A shared admiration of spaghetti westerns and surf music led to him putting down the pen and picking up the guitar. In Your Dreams is his second collaboration with the group.

135. MEET THE TRYGGER TWINS

This interview with The Trygger Twins originally appeared in muzicTown online magazine shortly after the release of the Twin’s single, GUN KONTROL.  The music video for the track was directed by Boone Welles who not only happens to be my cousin but is in Tryxxi’s yoga class.

I know Gun Kontrol is a hot-button issue but I think I can say without familial prejudice that Boone has really put her finger on it.

134. THE ACTUAL CRUZ/RUBIO ARTICLE

Actual ArticleMy friends. This is getting intense. A few days after I posted that photo I took of the newspaper article regarding Cruz and Rubio’s sexual past, a regular NY Post reader sent me the actual article.

Here it is in it’s entirety. It is no wonder America is losing faith in government.

133. CRUZ & RUBIO ARE BROS!

Wow, when I saw this headline on the subway yesterday I was even more stunned than I was a few days ago. My hands were shaking as I took the photo. As shocking as this new revelation about Cruz and Rubio is I have to say in some way it makes a lot of things clearer about them both.
