I have listened to Little Conversations, and found solace in Johnette Napolitano’s lyrics, since its release in 1989. The song is also the impetus for blue dirt girl’s April 6th, 2018 show at The Cultch, in Vancouver B.C. aptly named Little Conversations: an evening of music and words. A collaborative evening with blue dirt girl’s new music, Sophie Yendole’s Thinking Ship poetry and Sob Stories podcasts collecting conversations.
blue dirt girl recorded Concrete Blonde’s Little Conversations cover version in the fall of 2017 at Overeezee Studio. Jason Overy was recording engineer/co producer/drum/synth/back up vocals, Albert Klassen on bass/mandolin/back up vocals and Kathryn Sutherland vocals/guitar/co producer.
Thanks to Vancouver-based reclusive artist, Erik Whittaker, who created this original video for the track.
My Reed, thankfully, synced up the studio track with Erik’s video.
blue dirt girl’s Little Conversations is available for download at bluedirtgirl.com, Spotify, CD Baby and iTunes in mid-March.
