Desiree

Something to listen to this afternoon: "Desiree" by Sean Rowe. It's off his new album, Madman, which was released this week. About the video, from his FB page: "I put aside my hatred for heights and and weariness of clowns to find my inner child. enjoy!" (People, the man is working through his clown issues for you.)

From a GQ bit this week pegged to the album:

Sean Rowe's new album Madman, which drops tomorrow, is gritty yet somehow catchier than a Taylor Swift song. More soulful too. His extra-deep voice pairs with folksy guitar riffs to make this the kind of album that's at once recognizable and nothing like you've ever heard before. The kind you can leave on repeat all day long: Seriously, try listening to "Desiree"--we have the premiere on the video below--just once. He describes Madman has his most buoyant, most personal album so far.

Oh, and also, he made a squirrel burger this week.

As mentioned, Rowe is playing a hometown show at CAC Woodside in Troy October 3 to celebrate the new album.

Nice video but it really could have used a Mr. Bigglesworth cameo.

My grandmother has Alzheimers and sometimes comes to stay with us in Troy. Last week the absolutely highlight of her day was seeing the hundreds of crows that came streaming by the window at our apartment. I watched her go from completely unresponsive to engaged... stringing questions together and returning to her old joyful self for the half hour she watched those birds was enough to endear crows to me forever.

If you see someone running around throwing bird seed in Riverfront Park yelling "COME ON DOWN, BIRD FRIENDS!", it's me.
