So we've been recording, and the scope of things has changed a bit. After arriving at Battle Tapes here in Nashville with the intentions of just tracking drums, it was decided to just re-do the whole damn thing in a real studio with the great Jeremy Ferguson behind the wheel. The drums are tracked, and the rest is to follow. Here are some photos of the drum tracking:
Check out the second episode of The Basement Sessions featuring a live performance of Harvest from the upcoming record. This song is about the history of human life in the universe--from its concept to its destruction. Hell, it's all we know...
The first of The Basement Sessions, recordings done live in my basement, featuring the song The New Year Song from the new record that is in the works.
This song tells the story of an old hermit, living in a remote cabin in the wilderness, who is one day greeted by a knock on the door. He opens the door only to find a younger version of himself seeking shelter from the blistering rain outside and he has to make the decision to let him in or close the door.
Our youth eventually catches us in our older years, and we can only take the poor soul in out of the cold. We are haunted by our past and as we grow older we are constantly reminded of the mistakes we've made. We feel it in our bones, our skin, and our day to day lives. We can only allow our past to enter, but it cannot take over our present.
