soulful to the bone


Helloooo! It’s WAKE-UP TIIIME! Yowza!

Among other things divine, David unleashed two of his maybe-they’ll-be-on-his-upcoming-CD-maybe-they-won’t songs in Rexburg, Idaho last night, and honey, I LOVE what I’m hearin’/seein’ here. Fo SHO.

I’ve not yet seen video of all of last night’s peformances. His exquisite “Be Still My Soul” was, well, it was exquisite, of course, and a searingly heartfelt, tear-inducing, soul-stirring, reverent outpouring of a prayer, as only David can deliver. Absolutely perfect for BYU’s Spirit Week and a gift to everyone everywhere. Thank you, David. <3

Howevah, the subject at hand right HERE (rat’chere) is all about a taste of archu_grown POP and if this is any sign… PHEWEEE, his upcoming cd will be one rock solid home run. On a stick! I LOVE what he’s saying. And, boyhowdy, I LURRRRVE HOW he says it. These songs have quirk, message, personal voice, a little sass, guh-roove, great hooks and CHOPS, yowza! Fresh baked pop with heart, soul, fun… errrrrrrrrrrthang! Real Deal ArchuPop FTW!!! His performances speak volumes—He got it GOIN’ ONNNNNNNNNNN. You GO David! YOU. ARE. SO. F.I.E.R.C.E.

David is making relevant, current, relatable (singable, danceable, lovable, quirky, personal…wait, am I repeating myself?…*slaps self*) pop, and doing it EXCEEDINGLY WELL. (And it ain’t teenie-bop, neither. It’s bigger and better and quirkier and more personal and…*slaps self* than that. As always.) If these two songs don’t make it to the cd, then what does beddah be DANG GOOD. I reeeeeeallly like these, and I reeeeeeeally like “Best Behavior” and “If I Could Only Be.” (So there.)

Y’know, I’ve been pondering the (now world-famous…lol) “big news” tweet announcement (first seen via a Jive tweet. Miracles never cease) to come on David’s facebook this week. I know it’s not standard practice to book a tour out-of-sync with an album-drop, but I wonder if a mini-solo-tour might be in store, PRE-album. It would be a great way to test the waters on these and moaaaaaarrrr songs, AND keep the “Chords of Strength” mojo goin’ (AND take FULL advantage of the interwebz and youtube for buzz and feedback.) THAT would be way cool. That could be WAY SMART. IF… it’s economically feasible. In fact, could be that the ENTHUSIASTIC response to his book tour (for his NEW YORK TIMES No. 15 BEST SELLING MEMOIR thankyouverymuch! *so proud!*) has been enough to convince “the team” that a mini-tour right about now could work out quite nicely, while everybody’s on summer break. And it would get that guy back on the stage where he belongs performing. Callllll me cray-zeh, but I do believe he misses it. :)  Ok… /end pondering]

One last note. Is it just me, or does his “Works For Me” just get more frickin frackin  guh-roovilicious by the minute? Shee-ee-eeeesh. STOP THAT, DAVID. (not)

Ok, I lied. THIS is the last note: Titles like “Not a Very Good Liar” and lines like “you remind me of a ballerina dancing on a wire”… this is quirk I can’t EVAH get enough of. And the tempo and beat of both… luuuuuuv. I dig the pace and beat. And  I LOVE that he’s embracing his head voice and slingin’ it all around. Also, (1) I am pleased to report that I’m not the only one who at first heard “like walking on a trampoline” as “like a monkey on a trampoline” kikiki (I was down with that. NO PROB.) And (2) at first the “feel like you’re ten feet off the ground” read “feel like a turkey off the ground” LOL. Hey, I was ready to buy it, I tell ya. What can I say, I dig quirk. lol OH, and I adore that “Parachutes & Airplanes” was dedicated to Claudia. <333333  <3333333333

OK done.

I loves me my Mister Sassy

Man, when he’s relaxed and comfortable…WATCH OUT, PEOPLE. DANG he slays me. (Oh, and nice hair, buddy) All this Archu_activity of late is makin’ me KUH-RAZY. I don’t have time for this insanity. Cut it out, David. (Not)

Sparkchuleta FTW!

I MUST post this… bcz… bcz I CAN. And since, for the time being, I’ve been swallowed whole by the Sparkchuleta No Air Vortex…it’ll be so much more convenient to park it here.  lol
