    Hey guys,

    Well it’s been a long journey recording this record, but we are nearing the final stages. All the tracks have been laid down (a whopping 60Gb of space has been used to record this behemoth) and the album is currently being mixed. Among the tracks is an instrumental track that has never before been heard and is currently untitled (suggestions are welcome). Since laying down the final tracks we have entered the lengthy mixing process and experimenting with different directions for the songs. The album should be wrapped up over the winter break and will hopefully be coming out early next year.

    Below: Alex and Daniel create the “John Henry Beat”. In honor of the mythical folk hero, this cadence is a salute to the sounds of industry and the rail yard. Among the “instruments” played were a rusted brake rotor, a large board, a bike wheel, a suitcase, dirty 2×4′s and knee slaps. It’ll debut on our folk track, Even You.

    (Paul Bunyan approves.)

    Here are a few photos from our trip to the studio this Saturday.  Long time friend and local misfit, Stuart Baker, added some folk flavor to the record with his banjo pluckin. Engineer Chico Jones tried to reach maximum smile capacity for the camera’s “smile detector” and Daniel laid down some mandolin. Also of note, Daniel and Chico apparently have the same shoes.
