Studio Tour Day 2 [we’re actually on day 3 and you’re getting this info a day late. Computers.]

Dead Air with Will Killingsworth. My voice was shot from screaming on day one, so we went with the late-night-phone-call version of Wicca Phase vocals. I sound like Frank from Leatherface on the God City tracks, and Lou Reed with diabetes on these. 

No dogs at this studio. A knock against it. Got a great sound though. 

Made Will watch the Fight Fair music video a bunch because the idiots in that band like his old band and that makes him guilty by association. Will has been my friend for a decade, but he needs to be brought to justice for the suffering he has wrought.

Studio Tour Day 3 [we’re on day 4 now, information arrives at the speed of my ambition]

Sonelab in Easthampton with Mark Miller. 

Big space in an old mill. We’ve never met Mark and didn’t know what to expect. He’s a couple years older than the other engineers we’re recording with and we didn’t know if there’d be any sort of disconnect. 

As it turned out, Mark was among the most enthusiastic engineers we’ve recorded with. I warned him over and over to expect some grief from my voice, but he lit up when he heard it and worked with me to get something good out of it despite a couple days of damage on it. He was also really tolerant of me asking Lloyd Cole questions. 

One accidental pop song came out of this session and one heavy track that I think may be my favorite.

a few updates from my band members keeping me in the loop during recording. they are enlisting techniques and instruments i didn’t really know existed to create some truly odd material. seven fans left after this, tops. more weirdness to follow soon.

Studio Tour day 4. 

Jonathan Low at Miner Street in Philadelphia. 

Cool space. First studio of the tour to feature sunlight. At all. Recorded mostly to tape, which was cool. Jon wore a shirt that told us immediately, “this man fears nothing.” 

Jon is an idea man and has some weird old gear lying around, so we went full rainstick on this one. It’s some of our odder material. Comparisons to Human Sexual Response are apt. 

Great experience. Only minus was that it took place in Philadelphia, a supposed major city where the only available food after 10pm is pretzels.
