Here’s me and Lenny Zenith working on a super secret special thingy.
Well, sax anyway.
Haven’t posted in a while as I’ve been… well… dealing with shit… and organizing the studio. However…
Jeff Hudgins stopped by The Whelping Box to put some sax parts down for a song Lenny Zenith is working on…
You may know Jeff From Rembert & The Basic Goodness…
…or Bombay Rickey
And here he is!
A while back I recorded another live show for the amazing singer songwriter (and far too infrequent bandmate) D.B. Rielly.
Live From Chester Connecticut is getting national (and I think international) airplay and some really good press! For example:
“D.B. RIELLY IS DAMNED FINE. SOMEDAY THE REST OF THE ROOTS WORLD IS GOING TO FIGURE IT OUT FOR THEMSELVES. UNTIL THEN, TRUST ME: SEEK OUT LIVE FROM CHESTER.”
– Donald Teplyske, Fervor Coulee

Finally ran cat6 cable to the studio (I thought my days with a crimp tool were over)!
“Big whoop?” you say? Big Whoop indeed! Because the SSL Nucleus doesn’t play well when it’s connected to a mac getting it’s IP address over WiFi. Don’t ask, it was months of maddening back and forth. But… now it’s working like a charm! (and the near gigabit up and down speeds don’t hurt either.

BBC News just posted an article on Perry Serpa‘s new record!!
“He’s a very smart songwriter and I think he’s done very well,” says Hornby. “It sounds like an early Elvis Costello album to me, once Elvis had started filling out his sound a bit“.

Perry wants to thank Scott McCaughey of The Minus 5, Laura Cantrell, Aja Warren, Edward Rogers, Don Piper, Ron Raymond, and Aidan Serpa for their mighty contributions, Stephen Judge at Schoolkids Records – The Label and Dave Newton at Shifty Disco for getting it out there, and most of all, to Nick Hornby for the inspiration.
This time No Depression premiered ‘Dirty Dishes’ the 3rd single from Perry Serpa’s new record Wherefore Art Though? Songs Inspired By Nick Hornby’s Juliet, Naked.
In addition to being an amazing talent, Laura is totes fun to be in the studio with. A real pro and a genuinely nice person.
Magnet Magazine just ran a piece on Perry Serpa‘s upcoming album, Wherefore Art Though? Songs Inspired By Nick Hornby’s Juliet, Naked.
I’m proud to say that I did a bit of work on it (some vocal recordings and… well… let’s just say “Mastering” for now).
Super proud to have played some small part in the creation of this record.
I recorded a few vocals at Seaside Lounge and did some “pre-mastering” at The Whelping Box. Perry and I both think it came out great… and so does Nick Hornby!
“Magnificent. I love every song, words and music. I’m happy to think that my book has somehow produced work this good. It works completely on its own terms, and sounds complete in a way that very few albums do anymore.”
