Cory came down to KC last weekend, and we held sessions for his songs for Sally Ride’s upcoming record You Have To Wear the Boots. Friday night he tracked vocals and guitar in one live take for “Easy Kill” and “Into the Fire” – Saturday he did “Cracked Piece of Sky” and together we played “Harvest Moon.”
The main tracks for the album are now complete; next steps are adding the cast and company vocals, and adding some additional instrumentation (light drums, bass, and keys on various parts of various songs).
I’ve listened to it all once in the car, and am pretty durn happy with it all. The extra vocals will add a lot, too.
We’re looking forward to a release in the spring.
Robot, Creep Closer!’s farewell EP, Real Awful, Real Quick will be released one week from today; same furious-time, same furious-station.
Cory, you left your toothbrush at my house!
Cory and I continue to improve our in-studio rapport; I hope this one was basically painless for the little guy! Seriously, I used to stress him out while recording. Now we have a pretty good time, including songs, jokes, salsa, babes, Mastodon, and walks to the pastry shop around the corner.
Artists out there; you should consider recording at my place, if only for the Boulevard Pastries!
