Here’s a video journal from our first session at Dan Smart’s home studio, the place we’ll record much of our new album. We tracked keys, bass and drums live, then added vocals and some auxiliary bits of keys and tambourine. This video has an un-mastered rough mix of the tune, “Not Ready.”
Bob Buckstaff – Bass, camera, acoustic guitar
Chris Faller – Drums, tambo, dissonance
Mike Maimone – Keys, vocals, Wild Turkey
Dan Smart – Microphones, Widgets, Gadgets
Even though we’re just one day into recording and but one song tracked, we are excited to get a full-length album out by the end of this year. Wish us luck. And in the meantime, our first 3 EPs are still free at:
