My first roommate and one of my oldest friends Jon Resh just released the first song from he and his wife’s newest musical project called ‘Lion Fights Tiger‘ as well as this graphical video to go with, check it out:

Jon played me a rough version of this early last year and I’ve been anxiously waiting to see where it lead and I’m happy to say it’s everything I hoped it would be. I’ll get the SPOKE reference out of the way quick and say that since Jon is singing there’s a touch of familiarity but that’s about where it ends – everything else about this is fresh and interesting. That’s not shocking honestly, I would love to rattle off a list of things Jon’s done that would impress the fuck out of you but that list would just be too long and I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I will say that Jon has been an inspiration to me since the day I met him and no matter what he sinks his teeth into – writing, designing, or making music, he does it with his own style and usually smokes everyone else in the room in the process, while somehow becoming close friends with each and everyone one of them. I’m rambling now, but what I’m trying to say is I think very highly of the guy. But back to this track…

Here’s a higher res version of the video, and if you want to download the MP3 and read the worlds longest liner notes for a single song then check out There’s promises/threats of a full 21 song album which will be available online (for free!) later this fall. Congrats Jon and Melissa!
