We’re aware the future of Tally Hall is fuzzy. Surely, from the information gathered, we probably won’t see much action from the band for awhile. But that doesn’t mean the 5 guys are retiring their musical ties (pun intended).
We also know that Andrew Horowitz has been working on a solo project, has played a couple gigs in the NY area, and teased us recently by stating he’s working on a new track and debuting it soon.
That time has come.
His new project is called “edu” and he’s releasing his first demo on BandCamp of a song called “miss melody”. The description implies this song will be on a collection called “cassette tape 1” and reads:
“made by me for you. it’ll contain a few demos. i realize not everyone has a tape player. for the time being, however, i’d like to keep my music non-digital. this will mail out at the beginning of january.”
I had a chance to speak briefly with Andrew this evening:
HITS: Are you releasing your first demo album on cassette only? Horowitz: Yup. I don’t want my music circulated in disposable format and I want to release quickly and make it personal. I like to think my music is intimate.
Indeed, this song definitely sounds intimate, not unlike the song “You” on Tally Hall’s recent Good & Evil.
We can’t wait to hear more. But it seems like if you already threw away your old tape deck, you might wanna go scoping out those garage sales around town soon if you want to hear them! Listen to “miss melody” here:
