I’m glad and also a little sad to have finished the drums for the new record. Had so much fun the past 4 days, although I don’t think I full realised that at the time. Really wish we were up here for another week or so cause it’s been so sweet recording away from normality and the distractions that come with it. Plus Applewood’s such a beautiful space and we’ve come off 5 days on the road which means we’re all nice and warmed up.
Justin’s currently got a clean guitar sound going with his Les Paul for ‘Break and Keel’, he’s got it cranked through Ben’s Fender Reverb Deluxe … the guitar keeps going out of tune every 8 bars or so, so there’s lots of stopping and starting happening. Don’t know how he’s isn’t not loosing his cool with it J
The new record’s going to sound mighty different from Earnest. Touring this last year or so has meant a massive difference to the sound of the band, we’re much rockier from all the three set pubs gigs… plus I’ve been writing all these angsty songs…. Plus we’ve got a new (well not so new) bass player Edmondo whose a totally rock ‘n’ roller.
Can’t wait for y’all to hear it. Back south tomorrow. :(
I’ll post more behind the scenes pics soon.
