“King’s Crossing” - the first track.
Here’s the long-lost music video for LAKE’s “Oh, the Places We’ll Go” from the Oh, The Places We’ll Go LP [KLP196], now available for your viewing pleasure.
If you were at Ashley & Eli’s wedding, then you’ll want Karl Blau’s recordings of The Wedding Band.
From the Phil Elverum cam: The Wedding Band (Andrew, Mark, and Lindsay from LAKE, April Scheif, Karl Blau, and David Jaberi) cover “Gonna Make You Sweat” by C&C Music Factory for an encore performance at the wedding of LAKErs Ashley and Eli. This madness occurred on Saturday, Jan 29 on Whidbey Island in the middle of Puget Sound.
Sooooooo… LAKE songwriters Ashley and Eli got married this past weekend on Whidbey Island, and it was a wonderful wedding! And the reception was something else… the rest of LAKE collaborated with Karl Blau (on sax) and David Jaberi for the most amazing live wedding entertainment ever! They covered a number of R&B standards, with C&C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat” as the encore)… afterwards, Selector Dub Narcotic DJ’ed late into the night, and hordes of friends and loved ones swirled and spun on the dance floor. The food was delicious, the decor delightful, and the company enfused with so many K artists, past and present (and probably future), that it’s hard to even remember who was there… but I will say that a certain El Philverum was there with a video camera. Expect further documentation in the very near future.
Oh, and Karl BBQ’ed up the mooooost delectable oysters you ever did taste…. man of many talents, that Blau is.
Anyway, send happy thoughts to Ashley and Eli as they embark upon the wonderful journey into married life… they are such a wonderful team!
And need some new LAKE to fight those winter blues? Haven’t heard any of the upcoming stuff for Giving & Receiving? Check out “One Small Step” and “Within & Without,” and then listen to a remix of “Roger Miller” by K-fam-fer-life member Shawn Parke… and look for more stuff soon!
