Recording has begun in earnest! Yesterday we got some good basic tracks but today has been way more productive; basic drums, guitars, and bass are done for 5 of 7 songs, so we're right on schedule. So great to be back working with tape. Everything is sounding great. The studio is beautiful--really wide open and sunny, with a back deck that looks out onto the Colorado river, which is the river that runs through Austin. There's even a BB gun out there for shootin' at shit, so life can't get no better. We're still getting used to being able to go outside anytime we want--it's like 65, but it feels like 80 at least. So weird to remember it can be enjoyable to be outside when you are in the throes of a Chicago winter.
Heading back in now for the afternoon sessions--"If you were here" and "Indigenous" are on deck. Thanks for reading, we'll post again soon.
