Been very busy since December. In the past few months I have been writing and recording music more or less non-stop. In December Mrs. Muffin and I worked on original Christmas songs. In January we did all electronic music. And in February we wrote 14.5 songs as part of FAWM.
March was supposed to be about honing. Working on the material we have and learning new instruments. But, honestly, we are a little wiped from the last three months. We finally, just in the last few days, started looking at the material we have and what gets to stay. And this weekend Mrs. Muffin picked up her violin and I my glockenspiel!

You read that right. Idito the Chicken and Moonpie Nobot. That’s the name of the new music project/band Mrs. Muffin and I are working on. It’s been a somewhat nebulous process until recently. Mostly it was her music with me helping out from time to time. Recently things seemed to have coalesced as we happened into doing one original Christmas song a day until Christmas. I am really excited about this. Some of the rest of the material is acoustic nerd rock in approach. Here’s an excellent example of Idito’s brilliant song writing: Sundappled Robots I heart her so!!!
