about

This acoustic record was made to document the acoustic presentation of Dan Webb and the Spiders. The record was made in preparation for a brief acoustic tour Chris and Dan did in April of 2014.

It was recorded in one night at the new STARLAB on Somerville Ave. in Somerville, MA by Marc Valois.

The songs were recorded live with just a couple of twinkly overdubs here and there.

From the PUNKNEWS review:

"Whereas acoustic versions of songs originally written with an electric delivery in mind can often sound sparse in comparison to the full blown versions, it's a credit to Webb and Amaral, that they are able to imbue these stripped-down versions of their own songs with a new life that moves them into a different musical arena. As I've mentioned more than once to anyone who will listen, Webb has a really distinctive voice which sounds warm and inviting and having seen the band live a few years ago in a small but well attended bar show, I'm able to vouch for his ability to deliver the goods on stage. This recording enhances the quality of Webb's vocals and to me it comes across as the musical equivalent of warm caramel -- just delicious." -Rich Cocksedge

From the INDEPENDENT CLAUSES review:

"Webb usually fronts the pop-punk band Dan Webb and the Spiders, but for Eine Kleine Akustischmusik he lists his band as Dan Webb and a Spider. (Ha!) The recordings are simple: two guys with voices and acoustic guitars. There are occasional light overdubs (“Night Games,” “Long Years”). The whole 13-track thing was recorded in one (apparently quite long) night in a studio, giving it an earnest, raw feel without dipping too deeply into lo-fi. Webb’s high voice is complimented often by passionate high harmonies, which give a lot of energy to the tunes. As with anything that includes “punk band,” “one night” and “recordings” in the same sentence, these necessarily imperfect tunes have absolutely gorgeous, pure moments too. Sometimes those two things exist in the same song or phrase. It’s totally cool."

Track Name: You Gotta Way
are we really gonna be everything
we said we wanted to be
would we even know it if we saw it?

are we really gonna leave everything
we said we could do without
would we feel a lot lighter for it?

you know you look like a ghost
you know you look like you died a hundred times

are we really gonna feel like we're part
of what's been bleeding us dry
would we even steer any better?

can we live with the wrong we must do
to make everything right
how are we gonna sleep at night?
Track Name: Fix This Place
we get our faces rubbed in the dirt
then we laugh about how bad it hurts
and the only solace we know
is the promise of tomorrow

well it's easy for me to say
it's even easier for me to do
I've got so little to give
it doesn't really cost me a thing

there's a bit of a disconnect
between what you get and what you expect
and it all ends up in between
everywhere you've been

and oh to think what it would take
to fix this place

i just want to be so great
that all my mistakes
get read as genius
Track Name: Seamless Copper
you should know that I'm thinking of you
you should know that there's no one else
you should know that I'm thinking of you

all i do is sit around the house
and all i do is watch the tide roll out

you should know that I take you with me
you should know you're everywhere i go
you should know that i take you with me

all i do is think of things you said
and all i do is wonder where you went
