Warren DeLaney – “Qohelet”Posted: July 25, 2012
I’m proud to bring you a fantastic homebrewed album from one of my best friends in the whole bloody world: Warren DeLaney. We recorded this a few years ago, with a talented group of our Portland friends. I made some contributions in concept, writing, production, and background vocals.
It’s a wrenching breakup album from a ridiculously talented musician. Anger, hurt, confusion, and resignation all pool together in the end for “Crooked” – an 8 minute track of beautiful, folksy redemption. I still can’t make it through the last track with dry eyes.
I will not comment on the amount of rum and bourbon that may have been consumed during the months that we wrote, rewrote, and recorded Qohelet (pronounced “co-hell-ET”). Just know that we soaked it well in hard liquor, manly weeping, and the gray Oregon rain.
Make time to listen to it in a single sitting if you can. If you can’t, start with “Winter.”
Free download via Noisetrade. You can stream full previews, too. Go get it now, and leave DeLaney a tip if you can.
Physical album for purchase at CD Baby.
