Two Songs (Live at Troost)

by Lucas Brode Trio




This trio became itself in early 2019 and settled into a beautiful situation of playing monthly in the warm environment of Troost (Brooklyn NY). Here we have a document of the final performance in the before time, recorded on a cellular telephone the night of March 2nd, 2020 and subsequently mastered at Focus Grill in the Hudson Valley. Making music with Ben Rolston (bass) and Colin Hinton (drums) has been a great joy. We hope to record an album in the aftermath...if for nothing else, the sake of future nostalgia.

"Discretionary Reasoning" was composed in early 2019 for no project or instrumentation in particular, but then proved to be perfect for this group. It is influenced by several things, including the works of filmmaker Hal Hartley.

"Foggy on a Smilin' Day" was originally written and recorded in 2015 for solo guitar. It was sold as a limited 7 inch lathe cut picture disc, available only on tour. That recording, along with the b-side "Aubrey," is available here: lucasbrode.bandcamp.com/album/foggy-aubrey

The artwork for this release was done by dear friend and wonderful illustrator/animator, Ken Siu. Among our many collaborations in the past, he did the original artwork for the "Foggy on a Smilin' Day" release and the accompanying comic for my 2017 solo guitar release "I Lick the Kerosene of Progress."
