It’s been a while since I’ve been here so I thought I’d just write up a little update on what’s been happening.
The band and I began recording album number three in November at Atlantis Studios in Port Melbourne. We recorded once again with Dave McCluney (who has recorded our past two albums). We recorded fourteen songs over three days, and spent the next six sessions recording overdubs and vocals.
Towards the end of December I was fortunate enough to be awarded a grant from Arts Victoria to complete the recording for release this year. It has already been of great assistance and enabled the mixing to begin soon after which started in January. It’s been fortunate once again to have Victor Van Vugt work on the mixes (who mixed our last record, Early Summer). The mixes have recently been completed and are sounding really great. Now it’s a matter of selecting the songs to make the final track listing, as well as figuring out a track order before the album is mastered which I’m hoping is not too far away…
I’ve included some photos of the recording session below. I hope to be back here shortly with some more news.
