For Tetris fans with honed spatial awareness (and anyone interested), this is my bedroom studio space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn where I’m working on some demos for the next album. To reach that white chair you lower yourself down from the end of the bed balancing on the far right wall.
Most enjoyable show at the Lexington last night. This photo’s a tour van retrospective.

Amsterdam at Paradise on Friday
Cologne at Studio 672 on Sunday

This is James negotiating the world’s steepest stairs. New Zealand’s Occupational Health and Safety (OSH) would have a field day.
On tour with Lawrence Arabia and also trialling some of my new songs as the opening act. It’s my first thorough E.U soujourn, with the highlight (in terms of historical sites of importance) so far being van Eyck’s Adoration of the mystic lamb alterpiece at the Saint Bavo Cathedral in Ghent. Here’s Ryan, Anns and James outside. I guess this truck could have been more obtrusive.
Playing violin with Lawrence Arabia – James in the middle, Ryan on drums. Van Dyke Parks, Grizzly Bear and Beach house also on the lineup and we camped in the rain. Jolly good time.
In London rehearsing with Lawrence Arabia. James has grown a gargantuan me head. iphone photosynth app wo!
Thank you Arielle and Jillia for letting me borrow this steel pan for the day
I’m in Antigua, the West Indies where I was born. Headed along to listen to the steel pan band run by Anthony Hampson. Thanks Cesaire, Francis and Arielle for letting me crash your practice and learn a little more about steel pan playing. You guys sound great!
On my way to New York and this could be the Grand Canyon, or very near to it, which means it could be within 500 miles of it.
Rekindling love of this album I had as a kid. It’s a collection of Brazilian pop hits from the 1970’s-80’s, compiled by David Byrne on the luaka bop label
