After years of writing songs and not really doing much to get them out into the world in a professional way its time to own up to the life. We have some things planned for 2017, getting a photo shoot with a very talented photographer Shervin Lainez, recording at Mission Sound on the same Neve console that George Martin used with the Beatles. Rockwood the other night was killer. Looking forward to crushing the next year. Banana grams.
Struggling with depression is a long walk with nothing to look at. All you see is pain and a growning disconnection from whats around you, augmented with each passing day. The phone ringing is an alarm I can't handle, I look forward to going to sleep as there are many pyschedelic characters in my dreams. I find respite in the colors, chord and, harmonies the universe has to offer.
Digging the sounds of Mystic Braves from LA. Moved by the heavy pysch pop of Post Animal from Chicago. Digging deeper to find our own sound and loving the B9 Organ Machine I just got from Electro Harmonix.
Our last show of the year is this week at Rockwood. We will be playing a new tune for you, think Parquet Courts meets Frank Black. Jay wrote this one, I just had to polish it off with lyrics. The lovely Melody Stolpp will accompany us offering a sweet third harmony. Check out her page for some amazing tunes she's written. We are really excited to have her in the crew.
We have been busy at work on preproduction for our next release. At this point we have so many tunes that we aren't sure whether its going to be an EP or a full length. Basic tracking will begin early 2017 and shooting to tour by spring. Figuring out agreements with someone who will become the bands manager who will help us make a plan to crush 2017. Always moving forward.
