hey all, been a while…in fact, its been ‘never’ cuz this is the first time i’ve ever logged into or posted to this website but i’ll start posting more news, pictures, recording tips/myths and of course pictures of my dog, as the summer goes on.
Anyway, i’ve been working on the new drugs record since around last September, and demos actually began in April and May of last year. So far Dave has played a fretless bass on 2 songs and Robbie made an Arp Solina sound like the wind. So far we’ve tracked stuff all over the place–my home studio, my main engineer Jeff Zeigler’s Uniform Studios in philly, Water Music in Hoboken (Sandy hit them pretty hard and they’ve done an incredible job of rebuilding and moving forward stronger than before), Mitch Easter’s Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC (although Mitch wasn’t involved in the sessions and i was in the shower when he stopped by to drop off a 12 string Hagstrom), Miner St. studios in philly, my most favorite spot, Echo Mountain in Asheville, NC…and most recently, last night in brooklyn at ‘the bunker,’ where my friends Jon Natchez and Kelly Pratt played some beautiful horns on a bunch of songs. They’re currently in town rehearsing for their summer tour with David Byrne and St. Vincent (uhhh…super sick) so why not get the best.
here are some of the song titles:
Under the Pressure
An Ocean in Between the Waves
Eyes to the Wind
Lost in a Dream
plus a few more…
Not gonna make any promises on release dates/year or touring right now but it’ll all fall into place soon enough, when the time is right, and it’ll be fuckin’ awesome.
