Bromst in Baltimore


Dan Deacon's album Bromst is nearing completion. I'm in Baltimore wrapping things up before we head to Snowghost, a studio in Whitefish, Montana. We'll be mixing the album up there Septemeber 8th-16th (also, the studio is right next to Glacier N.P, so I tacked on an extra week to go backpacking!). The studio is really incredible. Check out the site. It's gonna be great! The album is going to be mixed through their SSL console, and passed onto tape. Also, the studio owns a midi controllable piano, which Dan has written parts for in several songs. Like, insane parts that no person could ever play. It's gonna be cool!

This week has been spent tracking additional instruments and vocals that did not get done in the spring, as well as cleaning up the session files, and preparing to mix. Also, I hadn't been to Baltimore since May, so it was exciting to see my pals. I'll be moving here in November!

My (sometimes) band Nuclear Power Pants is going to be part of the Baltimore Round Robin Tour from October 2nd-18th. There are going to be over sixty people participating, riding around the northeast in two veggie busses. More fun stuff.

I'm fine, I have a job in Tarrytown now. What did you use all that celery for? It looks like you cut up a whole bundle! When I eat that much celery I get sick.
