Here's The Thing

I recorded this little gothic rumination in 2019 but didn't do much with it afterwards. I forgot about it until February this year when it had a spike in listeners, and I received an email from a listener, C.B, who thought it was rather good. So I thought I could do a bit more with it, leading to this animation.

The great illustration was by Pierre Denys de Montfort and printmaker Etienne Claude Voysard (1801) and animated fantastically by Aaron Cornette.

"JAKE AARON certainly isn’t in a festive mood (good on you, Aaron) with ‘Here’s The Thing’. The thing is that he thinks we’re sinking and he could well be right. Jake has a nicely laconic delivery over a ringing acoustic guitar and a nice line in irony”.
