Studio Day 4

I couldn't write about day 4 on day 4 because i was driving home and settling back in but as I listened to our reference mixes in my car last night or now on my home stereo I'm starting to realize what we've done. We spent all of day 4 mixing, re-amping and applying effects but mostly listening. When you're crtitically listening like that you don't get to take in the whole picture. Having now had time to do that it is apparent truly how far we have come since Red Over Red. While we still love those songs and that album, Fortunate Some will be more than a step forward... it's a short sprint ahead of Red Over Red. Needless to say Justin is a hugely responsible for this. The notes and suggestions he gave us as well as his ability to mic a room and mix sounds to make them more than a sum of their imputs has made this album so much bigger and better. Not only was he willing to let us get weird when we felt the need but he encouraged it and nutured our weirdness and helped translate it to sound. So thank you Junstin, you have once again made recording an enjoyable and enriching experience. I'm not exactly sure what else to say here. The recording process is complete and mastering wil be taking place in around 3 weeks once again with Carl Saff. We still have to figure out art and things so don't hold your breath but rest assured we are going to continue to work to get this album out to you. Be prepared for weirdness and some singing and a whole bunch of heavy and did I mention weirdness? Thanks for reading, keep your eyes peeled for more updates as they happen.

Studio Day 3

Day three is in the books. Vocals finished and mixing has begun...

Vocals gave me a bit of a struggle today but I perservered and managed to beat them into submission. Just goes to show that I should probably never book a show before noon cause my vocals will not be ripe just yet. Anyway, after all that was said and done we ended up with some real solid performances. Next came the start of (what I find to be) the ever tedious process of mixing. Thankfully, Justin enjoys the process and he's the one doing most of the work. The good part about mixing is the chance for re-amping and effecting pieces of the performance. Justin rigged up this sweet little amp and pedal contraption to add some heavy. We, of course, found some time while Justin was doing some technical things, to go next door to Abandoned Building Brewery to sample their wares. If you're a beer geek in the Easthampton area check them out, they make a pretty good brew. Fortunate Some is really starting to take shape and tomorrow is our final and perhaps most exciting day. Stayed tuned to see how it all turns out.

Studio Day 2

We are now 20 hours into our 40 hour Sonelab experience. We blazed through the rest of the bass overdubs and let me tell you there is going to be some noisey madness on this record...

I had to play twister at one point; it was all right hand bass, left hand Synth Mangler joystick, right foot wah pedal. Noise can be a complicated thing. I also did some honest to god playing as well. So much playing in fact that we managed to get 65 tracks on one of the songs. We are working very collaboratively with Justin to create some new and intersting textures and more atmosphere on every single tune. Along with the completion of the bass tracks we also managed to run through about 75% of the vocals. We are absolutely flying through our sessions and having a blast doing so. We've got 2 days left and we should be finishing up vocals tomorrow and beginning mixing and experimenting with some studio trickery. Stay tuned!
