For the past week, I stayed with some friends whom I've known forever. Both are amazing musicians and one is also a fantastic artist. Their company is called Absolute Focus and I seriously reccomend that you check them out.
I've known Jas forever. He is one of the best tabla players I know and probably one of the funniest people I've ever met. Kamaljeet is an amazing santoor player and also super funny. I always love going to their shows and seeing them play, it's so beautiful and extremely fun to watch. Jas's brother, Kul hung out a bit too. They're all so hilarious. I was shockingly productive while staying with them. We got a bunch of stuff done each day. We also spent quite a bit of time with their family, all of whom are so dear and wonderful. One of the days I was there, we went to an art gallery and then this awesome tea house, Chado Tea near Little Japan. Because of the sweet scones we got there, we were inspired to make our own a few days later which turned out pretty awesome. Kul and I went to Barnes and Noble one of the days and I, of course, bought a Dead Weather cd. They're so good, I couldn't resist. I got a TON of writing done at their house. We spent quite some time in the studio as well working on a new song. It was a lot of fun. We goofed off a but, but got very much done. I'm so excited for this song :) Man, I love these guys!
