The Pounding On Your Door

I spent a decent part of the day working on getting an updated mix of “Another Day” put together.  The last time we really worked with it, we were using a very old version of Pro Tools.  The song is one of our favorites (this is the second version of[…]

Dynamic drunkdude Drum Dudes

We’ve got a selection of songs that we cut with the venerable Charley Newcomer on drums that are coming up.  We’ve also been fortunate to have our old friend Coach Hanna perform drums on a few tracks.  We’re looking forward to getting some tracks completed with Jim Evans as well.[…]

Another Studio Season

Ahh, November: crisp fall air, piles of multicolored leaves, and the end of Daylight Saving Time. That can only mean one thing. It’s studio season again. As much as it’s depressing when the sun has set by 5:30 in the afternoon, the earlier evenings make it a whole lot easier[…]

Wanting Everything

This song has been languishing since some time in April. As usual, the mix/instrumentation isn’t quite done, but the song is finished. Here’s to hauling another one out of the dd69 underground storage before it gets too moldy.

New Music

In a previous post,  we talked about sharing some new, unfinished and unpolished music that we’re working on.  Here’s one that’s in progress. It’s called “Lose You Baby”. We haven’t quite fleshed out all the parts yet, and if you listen closely, you can probably hear the washer and dryer[…]

One Man On Bass

In our continuing quest to not spend, oh, I don’t know, years working on the same material, I’ve suggested a goal that we will finish the recordings we’ve got in progress by the end of February.  Bad enough that we pull open a session file and see that the last[…]

Capturing Andy Summers

Wow, is it snowing here on the north coast. It’s definitely a good time of year to enjoy recording music indoors. KBilly and I convened last night to work on mixing some of the new songs, generally regrouping for the new year. We tweaked up a mix of “Keep It[…]
