What goes into recording an album in your house? Well, here’s how we do it.
On Saturday 10/5/13, we moved all of our gear into Ryan’s house, taking over every available space for the purposes of recording our second album (Crooked House). The plan was to cut 13 tracks over the following handful of days, and that’s what we’ve been doing. We just finished up tonight’s session on Monday, 10/7, and we have two songs left to record. So, everything’s going according to plan, heh heh heh (rubs fingertips together).
Here’s a whirlwind tour of our recording setup — awkwardly hosted by Ryan, and barely filmed by Eric, both of whom probably should have known better than to attempt anything involving video. (Sorry about the camera turning sideways. Eric didn’t know you shouldn’t do that with an iPad while filming.) And the Academy Awards for Best Host of A YouTube Video and Best iPad Cinematography go to…!
