David McCarty Weird Wish balances gentle pop with splashes of intricate jazz--somehow managing to be catchy, smart, and funny all at the same time. Perfect music for driving on a sunny day and for cooking dinner on a rainy night.

My favorite part might be the apocalyptic country-tinged New Orleans Jazz of the crescendo of "Moroccan Roll." Favorite track: Moroccan Roll.

These songs were written as blank canvases for some of our favorite musicians to flesh out. Dan, Jason, and bassist Michael Rinne recorded the foundation of these pieces together on borrowed time while in the studio for another record and then sent them to Levon Henry, Phillip Sterk, The Westerlies, and Jake Sherman for their remote contributions. We hope you enjoy the results.
