Con Davison (of Bad Bad Hats and Dreamspook) released his debut solo EP, Far Off Distant Plans and will be at MOTR Pub on Monday January 21st!
Holed up in a studio within a long-forgotten King Coil mattress factory in Saint Paul, Davison put together a collection of songs and the future: songs about longing and songs about fear. And somewhere within those feelings of trepidation, a little bit of hopefulness shines through.
Jangly melodies and self-assured rhythms give a nod to the past, while making room for Davison’s rumination about tomorrow. Written and recorded entirely by Con Davison, with post production help from Brett Bullion (Bad Bad Hats, Now, Now) and Huntley Miller (Sylvan Esso, Bon Iver), Far Off Distant Plans is swirling with sincerity and realism; it is a surprising debut from a college drop-out turned hired gun drummer, turned exactly what he has always wanted to be: completely himself.
