My promise to myself to update Naturalismo while I had my one week off for holiday obviously didn’t come to fruition! Sorry sorry dear readers. Regular updates will resume on Monday! I have some very exciting features in the works including an interview with Alissa Anderson, a Naturalismo blog exclusive cover track sung by the enchanting Marissa Nadler, of course more Devendra news, a new Pepi Ginsberg album and more.
For now I will leave you with a song that captures the feeling of my half a fortnight of splendor. Jeff Alexander wrote the song “Come Wander” for use in an episode of the Twlight Zone in 1964. The song is stunningly beautiful and somewhat haunting, I’ve had it floating in and out of my head all week. I think it’s about as close to perfection as a song can get. Bonnie Beecher, the real girl from North County, ran with Dylan for a time but is primarily remembered as an actress. What many don’t realize is that she recorded with Bob Dylan early in 1961 and a bootleg exists of their recordings. I’d love to provide the bootleg for you here but when I went to plug in my external hard drive I discovered it was dead. If someone has this out there please send it over to share with everyone.
