The Awful Lot
Recording is finished. Clean-up for the second half of today. Cleaning up tracks, fixing small gaffs or moments we overlooked.
If you’ve never heard of Pro Tools, let me explain this funny little thing. Imagine having all the commands offered by a word processor–Cut, Copy, Delete, Paste, etc.–and apply them to sound. It’s an amazing program. So amazing, it allowed us to record six songs in less than 48 hours.
Our first EP–it isn’t a demo anymore–will be available at GenCon, on my own website, and on The Awful Lot’s MySpace. We’ll have samples up as early as Tuesday.
I cannot tell you how excited and impressed I am with the people I’ve been working with. Sheldon, Patrick, Amber, Scott, and Neil (our engineer) all make me feel like the talentless hack in the room. And I don’t feel that way often.
Over the weekend, Tom (via his record company) uploaded a video for the forthcoming Orphans boxed set. It’s Tom “goofing on Elvis,” and it’s called “Lie to Me.” Check it out:
