Eek… New year same habits, hey?
Looks like a haven’t learned how to keep this blog updated on a regular basis.
Alas, I do have some news to post about. The first half of this year has been spent working on new music for my band Lost Coast. We decided to finally get into the studio and put our music to tape and that’s what we have been doing.
We spent four days locked in a studio just outside of Canberra, where we recorded drums, bass and all the guitar parts. After that comes the mixing process which we are doing out of Louis Montgomery’s personal studio. It’s a long process but completely worth the time and effort.
One of the benefits of jumping into the studio is working on all the individual parts, seeing what works best for recording and what needs to be changed from the live setting. The songs that have been recorded are ones that we have been playing for a long time, some even years so it is great to finally have them on tape.
We also just released a single from the recordings. The first piece that has come out of the mixing stage. The song is called ‘Dylan’.
You can listen to it here:
I’ve also spent some time working on new Soft Hollow music. There are two songs that will be out later this year and I’m going to aim to do more shows along with more twitch streams. Updates will surely come!
