in the studio

We’re in the studio again mixing. one song totally done, another very close. I’ll try to take some pics soon of the ginormous bruises VJ gave himself playing tambourine last night. I got to play this rad super green melodica that wasn’t quite in tune. We used the varispeed on the tape machine to ‘tune’ the stuff we tracked live to the melodica! Jason told us about how a bunch of early punk records were recorded at regular speed then sped-up slightly for mix down to add ‘pep’!? Crazy. Vic Goddard alludes to the practice in the middle of this really interesting interview.
