Sparrows Recording: Day Four


DAY FOUR
Today was a long and strange day. We were way ahead of schedule, after completing "Little Country Road", "Bed Of Mercy" and "The Weather" much faster than anticipated, we were left to work on group vocals. We laid down some amazing stuff on "Little Country Road" and went on to lay down the key pieces and hand claps on "More Of You". Now we just spent maybe 2 hours recording a ridiculously soulful version of "Come On Byrd". My fingers ache, my hands feel arthritic and my brain doesn't work. I feel like we've been getting less and less sleep each night, which is probably true. BUT, I must say that this session has blown my mind and the results are nothing short of inspiring and incredible. Now we are setting up the piano to lay down a basic track for "Christmas Light" and perhaps some honky tonk stuff on "Little Country Road". We added a bunch of rollicking vocals to that one including some "la la la la las" that make it sound like "Revolution".

lovely. jude is too cool for blogs.    



7:54 PM

On the off chance that you have extra time and you're taking requests: I think you should lay down a Phil Spector-ish girl group song with Timshel on vocals. This is totally selfish, although I think it would be great anyway, really I want it for use on the Dance Party soundtrack.    



7:55 PM

Also: This whole session sounds amazing.    



8:53 PM

if we had extra time, i'd sleep. i haven't seen anything outside of this recording studio except to take photos.    



1:57 PM

i call music video dibs on the first single!    



7:38 PM

marc... lets be realistic, you HAD video rights for the last song, ages ago... you don't produce results. Aaron has the results for the first single.    



8:39 PM

aaron?? i'm the only one who has actually made a keegan video. a crappy one sure, but with absolutely zero resources. plus the move to LA makes me the obvious choice    



9:38 PM

good point, to hell with aaron. go chad.
