Denny, Daytrotting

More catch-up: Just came across the live Daytrotter session Chris Denny and the Old Soles recorded several months back.

They do "The Stars Above and My Heart in Your Hands," "Gypsy into a Carpenter" and two previously unreleased, but oft-performed live songs, "Vacation" and "Born in the Desert."

All are available for download.

Plus, really effusive and purple prose!


Denny makes sure to get across on Age Old Hunger that he’s always willing to stick his neck out for love, that he’s always willing to try it on for size. He’s never found love or the tenderness of it to be deplorable. Some things are just what they are maybe. Some things need to be tart and so teeth-breakingly, chokingly sweet to be what they really are and Denny couldn’t be a better interpreter. He makes love feel like a raging wildfire, the Arctic Ocean, a sucker punch and a vaccine. He makes it feel like no matter the setbacks, no matter what the potential drawbacks could possibly be, you should cannonball right into the deep end. He makes it feel like you took a nasty spill on a gravel road and you’re sitting along the ditch picking dusty rocks from your skin. He also makes it feel like this weird rebirth, the one that we’ve always longed for post-crisis. He will turn you cathartic if you allow it to happen.

Upcoming Denny and the Old Soles shows...

Friday, July 4, Maxine's, Hot Springs
Thursday, July 10, Pizza D
Friday, July 11, some TBA spot in Fayetteville
Saturday, July 19, the rooftop of Michelangelo's, Conway

After that, a whirlwind tour of Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana.
