As the Days of Summer Wane
On 'As The Days of Summer Wane' Pat Kinsella plays electric, archtop, acoustic, and lap steel guitars, resonator, guitar synthesizer, fretless bass, fretted bass, cornet, trumpet, doutar, pipa, erhu, kalimba, djembe, clay madal, darbuka, conga, bhangra dhol, voice, cow hooves, cigar tubes. On this one I was trying to capture the feeling of, how at the end of summer how everything is slowing down more and more as summer comes to an end. Plants' photosynthesis slows, everything begins slowing it's metabolism some, but just as that is about to nod off, a resurgence of new kinds of activity happen because things are preparing for the winter. This is really a recurring feeling I try to capture in my music. It is something I feel very personally, physically, emotionally, and I see that reflected in the world around me and I like to express that in what is perhaps the best way I can express things, in music.
