Josh Pyke - The Lighthouse Song (Track 12/22)
Album - Chimney's Afire (Sample/Purchase)
Label - Ivy League
Josh Pyke is an Australian singer-songwriter who writes music that makes you want to spoon by the fire. "Chimney's Afire", the aptly titled follow up to his award-winning debut, is the term used for the cry whalers of yesteryear make when they harpooned a whale and a plume of blood and water spurted out of its blowhole into the air. Gnarly image i know... but kind of beautiful at the same time...sort of like Pinochio's Daring Journey. "Chimney's Afire" depicts soothing images of a nautical nature and maritime themes suitable for a soundtrack to the tales of Huck Finn, Moby Dick and Magellan. Inspired by his own seafaring adventures taking annual beach trips to Patonga with his family when he was little, Pyke traverses an ocean of memories, ideas and thoughts about everyday concerns, with stability and the notion of making up your own mind emerging as overriding themes. So with that said, make up YOUR mind and get me this super cool GUITAR BOAT in the "Make You Happy" video below. My bday is only 11 months away and I promise it will make ME happy.
This boat was created to the exact specifications of the Maton acoustic guitar that he performs with, at Rozelle Bay on October 9, 2008 in Sydney, Australia.
