It's a cloudy afternoon here in Toronto, and we're still plugging away on... as yet untitled. That's not what it's called though. We just did some killer clapping on "Golden Boy". Any day you invoke the Bay City Rollers is a good day. I'm setting up to play some guitar on "The Love We're In". That song is struggling to find itself. I think we're on the right track now. I've tried several approaches to the vocal... I think what we ended up with is good, but it's a lot more fragile than I'm used to hearing my vocal.
One of the hardest parts of recording for the drummer is the over-dub process. All the drums are done and, aside from the occasional tambourine or shaker, there's not much else to do. Luckily, two factors contributed to me having more to do this time around. First of all, I get to sing a little more these days and I'm loving it! Secondly, JIM BOUGHT A BIG GREEN EGG so I became the session Chef! It was great to cook for my boys while we polished up the tunes. Maybe I should do it on the road??
Wow. Last day of recording here. We are currently in the enviable position of having completed less songs than we have yet to complete. Feels good. In the way an unexpected kick in the throat feels good. The good news is... what we HAVE finished is sounding incredible, and we're looking at solutions to record the balance while Bob is mixing. I think we can, I think we can, I think we can.
I hope Tyler posts video of this really soon, cause it's awesome. Tyler has spent the last 3 or 4 hours preparing some killer ribs on the patio here. He decided mid prep that he need to sing a really high harmony, so he rolled in to the iso booth with rib sauce and beans all over his apron, and just rocked it. So funny. Ty in his sunglasses, and apron bustin some BGs. I love my job.
OK - I guess Ed was serious about finding someone else. Looks like he decided on an all Hi-Hat approach from now on. Revolutionary...
We're on pace for another 2 song day like we had yesterday. But we just spun up "Graffiti Love" which is feeling kick ass. Maybe this one actually only needs some BGs, and we can move on to another. Fingers crossed. Tyler is cooking steaks on the Big Green Egg. Mmmmmmmm
I love my job....
It's 11:23. Sixteen minutes after I first wrote this post using Firefox, and decided to take advantage of the spellchecking abilities of Safari. Being a computer wizard, I simply selected, and copied all my text, launched Safari, then copied and pasted in the website url in to Safari... losing the entire post. I suck. We've set ourselves the lofty goal of 3 plus songs per day in order to finish all 18 by this Friday. Ambitious? Ridiculous?... Impossible??
We've been staring longingly at our computers in eager anticipation of our new website.
