a live Ep consisting of acoustic versions of songs from "The Sparrow". On this Ep the songs have a simpler arrangement than on the full-length cd.
As for the release, Live from the Downtown Studios is 7 live versions of songs taken from his most recent “The Sparrow and the Crow” (which in itself, exists in a emotional heaviness that exudes connection – make sure you read the interview done about the album here). The song choice and the order is what I find intriguing – using the two “songs” as a framework of the album which the other songs are then hung from.
As most fans of his music will tell you – there are certain times when William Fitzsimmons is on repeat in the iPod. As much as I think the music once released becomes manipulated by the listener and normalized into our experinces – I’ll try not to put too much on the music.
