A bit of time has passed since November and it’s high time for an update. We are working on our second full length album (!) which has yet to be named. There’ll be some songs you’ve heard live and some you haven’t and we’re very excited to share them with you. Some of the songs that we’re recording have been living in my head or half-formed for a long time and are only now being arranged for the band, so don’t feel like you’re in the dark – even I don’t know what they’re going to sound like when the whole thing is finished! I’m excited, though, and I hope you are, too.
So far we’ve recorded Mike and Craig’s parts for the beds. Ian Gomes at Union Sound Company helped us get some great sounds. It wasn’t too hard with Mike and Ian’s combined arsenal of about ten snares and at least as many cymbals.
The bass also got some sweet tone action from a few pedals, a bass amp, a Moog, and a couple of other things. Please pardon the blurriness, we were going for a “mood” and the lighting was pretty low.
We’re looking forward to building these tunes. Still going to be a while before we release them, though. Until then, come say hi when we play the Monarch on February 27th! Check out show details here!
Here are some more photos from the January session:
