I’m slowly getting back into this audio business.
This weekend I got to spend some more time working on the new Tenterhooks record, this time on the other side of the glass.
With the intrepid Ray Ketchem (Elk City) at the helm of his new shop in Montclair, NJ, I did a full day of bass and an afternoon of singing with the amazingly talented Renee Lobue (also of Elk City).
Lenny Zenith (Jennifer Convertible, Without Misty, Minor Planets…) cut almost an albums worth of lead vocals and Karl (also of Elk City) put down some inspired piano, synth, and some damn fine bleeps and bloops!
Been a while but it was good to get back behind the console at TheEndNYC for an afternoon of tracking and mixing (I’m sporting the green hat). (Even the editing was fun).
Here we see the ever talented Vanessa Gray (Fluffer, Ornamental, Mercury Rev) cutting the loveliest of background vocals for Robert Gaulke’s weird and wonderful song “You’re On My Money”… which I can’t play for you yet.
I also finally got to test the D67 mics I’ve been working on forever (not pictured). They were not right for Vanessa’s voice but they downright shined on Robert’s lead vocals I’m happy to say.
