Invocal in the Park

22 September 2009

I think I am spending entirely too much time on Invocal. Things on my to-do list at the moment:

- Design new website
- Get website built & sort out hosting
- Organise photography session for new promo shots
- Sort out new promotional materials
- Get gigs booked
- Get more press coverage
- Update MySpace & Twitter with regular news
- Keep mailing list updated
- Organise a video shoot & manage creation of videos

Needless to say JD is getting a *little* bit frustrated with the amount of time I spend on Invocal. But on the other hand, she loves that I am doing something I enjoy immensely. And the music is nice: Acoustic, folk-ish, funny and from Northampton to boot :-)

This weekend, we went to The Racecourse in Northampton to take a few new photos. I took my camera along and then I shot a little bit of video. Since I don't have any decent video editing software, I used Windows Movie Maker (EVIL program!) to create a short film of a minute.

This morning, Northampton acoustic group Invocal took to The Racecourse to have their picture taken. Things are never simple with that lot...

I looked at this last night, now this morning I have worked out what is disconcerting.

The park is not very green. It is burnt off a bit like an Australian park. But you are in England and you are just coming out of summer. Everything should be lush ...

I dont have speakers on my computer so did not hear the music.

And, of course, Joni Mitchell is great.

Lush and summer don't go together in England. The video is a bit washed out because the sun was shining really brightly. SO I had to do a bit of Photoshopping with the pictures as they too showed a lack of contrast, even if the actual picture we nice. I'll post them here once I finished touching them up.

If you don't have speakers, I would still suggest you have a look at 1 of their best lyrics: Cheer Up Frowny Face (http://www.invocal.co.uk/lyrics/index.php#cheerupfrownyface). It is about how people think they are understanding when a fried is depressed but in reality they just think it is all a bit annoying when the depression does not pass in a few days.

Gives a good impression of fun & serious at the same time.
Well, I think it does. But you would still be best of listening to the music :-)

PS: I won't be offended if you don't like it at all :-)

I will get Al to attach the speakers back onto the computer and listen as well.

I found the lyrics a bit hard to follow with all the change of voice. I think that maybe if you had not given me an overview, I may have been a little perplexed with what the lyricist wanted to tell me. But this is my lack of understanding more than anything. I will listen and see if I appreciate them more.

You are usually spot on with the lyrics you like ...
