Band Brulee is maintaining social distance like everyone else right now, but Aura and Lou have been trying not to fall into a state of musical distance. Click here for a new video, expertly filmed by Lisa with a very steady hand on her iphone, filmed on Lou's front porch to support the Quarantunes organization. The song is What Else Can I Do, originally written by Lou about raising kids (and girls in particular) during the past few years. I won't get political here, but I think you know what I mean.
Although the song wasn't written specifically for this wildly unexpected spring of 2020, the sentiments seem relevant (The key to gettin' through is just keep showin' up). And if you're not the kind of person who listens to lyrics, hopefully you can dig the moving bassline or the sound of that 1965 Fender Deluxe Reverb.
When we've played this song for people at shows, I often get requests for a recording. We still don't have a smooth studio recording, but hopefully, this front porch version will suffice for now, and we'll get back to the studio when we're all able to meet again in tight spaces with microphones.
