So this week my man Noah Glenn tracked drums until the wee hours of the morn! I thought it’d be fun to post an EXCLUSIVE video for y’all out there in TV Land. So this past year I’ve been pretty obsessed with drum sounds of the 70’s. They’re dead as dodos, so we had a few secrets up our sleeve to try and capture the dryness of Noah’s Ludwig kit.
The new record is coming along well, as far as tracking goes. Yesterday I did electric guitars all day–went back and forth between the SG and the Jazzmaster. I used different pick-up combinations and the Vox AC-30 and this little custom Fender Champ that sounds super gargly when it’s pushed.I just wrapped up the vocals on the last two songs: Bronx Cheer, and the eponymous title track– Precious Melodies Against Satan’s Devices. They are more uptempo, power-poppy jams that have really fun, McCarntey-esque melodies! My diaphragm is sore, but it’s all for the rock!
