So.. in the last couple of weeks we have been recording vocals for the LP at a (fairly) secret (but let’s face it, well-known) location in north-west London. We’ve been dubbing onto the great instrumental tracks recorded at Furnace Studios in Bulgaria.
With James Ewers at the controls, free coffee, bubbly and fame cake, and guest appearances on BVs from Emma Richardson (Band of Skulls) and Alcxxk (Internet Forever – and he also did a wee bit of tromboning) it is sounding ACE.
Just got a few string bits and gang vocals to do now – going to Valley Studios in Winchester of this cos they’ve got a great feel there and we can piss about with real tape as well. Release will be sometime between October and next February. Keep an eye out for stuff on Soundcloud though…
In the meantime we will be releasing the Falmouth sessions very soon. This is a load of louder stuff recorded as Ann The Arc (Jimmy Shivers – bass; Dave Wade-Brown – drums) and produced by Dan Parry. Songs like ‘Hake’, ‘Wolf’ and yes, ‘Stutter’ plus a couple of others should make for a nice fat EP. Working title is ‘The Young Unprofessionals’ and we’re hoping Sotones will release it.
Think that’s all for now, bye x
