This week I began recording the album- whooop!
The first step was drum tracking. Logan used this AMAZING record as his drumming inspiration:
As you can imagine, it really added extra intensity and passion.
He won Best Engineer at the NZ Music awards last year. But it is very strange, the 'technical' awards (Best Engineer, Producer, and Album Art) are actually HIGHLY creative, but they are held on a different night to the main awards- like they don't even matter!
As if shaping the sound of an album is of no importance.
Anyway, he won. Hurrah. Working with Olly was wonderful, and we are just getting started. When the live song frenzy came upon me, he was there, getting creative with vintage room microphones to capture the song 'Lazarus' in one solid take.
What you cant see here are the boys stomping and clapping till their hands bled, and one very talented bass player.
