Day 3. we finsihed bass and synth stuff followed by a full day of the most incredible guest musicians on bass clarinet, tenor sax, cello and trumpet. it was amazing to watch our visions for these songs come to life and we still have more recording to go.
There was a day 4 to recording and it flew by..Guitars were blasting all day followed by Nathan doing an inspired one off take on a mini vibraphone for one of the new songs. The record is 95% recorded and sounds better than we could have imagined. We will be putting the finishing touches on it in a few weeks.eventually I will get some pictures posted!

Day 2 recording was a long one...10+ hours..drums,keys,synths & loops are all done and one track of bass..we also managed to watch ghostbusters II !!! & play around with eno's oblique stratagies cards for some album art ideas. However we still have yet to come up with a name for this album>>>>>Our good friend Noah stopped by and took some video footage also so some of that may surface sooner or later....time for shut eye and then straight back to the studio.
Day one of recording was not with out minor mishaps..Chris' bass amp died before we even made it to the session. Lucky for us Ben from All Tiny Creatures saved the day and got us a loaner for the weekend. So things are back on track!!. We have the drums all mic'd up and sounding good after an hour of listening to Nathan hit his snare as we moved mic's around. One song of drum tracks is complete. We were done a little after midnight. We are all meeting up right now to head back in for a full day of Recording.
