The last song from our album is up!

Paul

Go listen to Passed Time now!  This is one of my favorite tracks, partly because it’s like 3 great songs in one, and partly because it was so much fun to record.  The last part of the song came from us being locked in a little recording booth with a bag full of percussion instruments.  At one point I got to play a chair as an instrument.  Good times, happy times.  Enjoy!

Alright to Be Alright

Listen to the single off our album.

Paul

UPDATE: This one’s down now too.  Next up is All Things Go, go listen to it!

 

This song features cavemen.  In space.  Copious amounts of cowbell.  Organ solos.  Castle Rock.  WHY ARE YOU NOT ALREADY LISTENING TO THIS MAJESTIC PIECE?!?

Listen to the third song off our album!

Paul

UPDATE: Boom, gone, go listen to Spacecaveman.

“Kind Eyes” is now available for your listening pleasure, for a limited time.  This is one of my personal favorites, due in large part to the addition of Erik Kang from Margot and the Nuclear So and So’s on violon.

Give it a listen and tell us what you think!

Now that we’ve finished mixing and mastering the album, we can start sharing some of the music we’ve been working on for the last several months with you.  We’ll be posting a new song every day, but it will only be up for a short time so listen to it quickly!

The first song we’re sharing is also the first song off the album. Listen to “The Circus” from our forthcoming album, “We Are Enablers.”

The Home Stretch

Jason

We’re in the home stretch. We’ve finished all of our recording, mixed all the parts so they sound oh so nice together, and now it’s time for the final stage: mastering. This is where we take our mixed-down two channel mixes and balance them out, place them together, and make a single coherent whole. We’re hanging out here at Boiler Room Mastering, a spot designed specifically for the mastering process, finishing up. Dan our most excellent engineer stopped by to chill for a bit, and now we’re mostly just hanging out as Colin puts the last touches on the record enjoying the sweet sweet sounds. A dance party may ensue when we do the ultimate bounce.

When we leave tonight, we’ll be musically done with the record. All that’s left is artwork and packaging and getting it into your hands.

We’re extremely excited to get some sounds out to you guys, so expect a couple previews in the next few days!

A big thanks to Matt Pavlak!

Adam

 

Mr. Pavlak was one of our very generous Kickstarter backers and for one of his rewards he requested we play “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds.  Below is a video of our cover of the song.  Thanks again Matt!

 

 

 

We also want to give a huge thank you to our good friend Ryan Pollyea, who took time out to film and edit the video for us!  Our friends are the best.

As we continue with recording our album, we’re working on all our Kickstarter rewards and look forward to getting them out to all of our backers soon!

‘Twas a good night

Paul

Well, even though the Bulls weren’t able to pull it out in overtime, it was still a good night tonight.  It was our first time back in rehearsal at Music Garage since we started recording our album, and boy did things both feel and sound good tonight.  Since we’ve been playing our parts pretty much constantly for the past two weeks, we breezed through our setlist for the show at Goose Island on Friday and had an extra half hour to mess around.  Here’s a drum solo from Jason to commemorate things:

 

 

Yeah.  He’s good.  And since I don’t think we’ve ever posted pictures from the rehearsal studio, here’s the rest of the gang.  I was taking the pictures, so if you want to see me slappin’ da bass you’ll have to come to the show this Friday.  Goose Island Wrigleyville.  Be there.

Jason on the Drums

Here's Jason, drummin' away. Or looking frightened.

Adam waving

Here's Adam, waving to me.
