I figured now is about a good a time as any to ‘chime in’, so here goes.
So, yeah. New Tokyo record.
We’ve been in the studio one week today, and I’ve already forgotten where the begining of the trail was (a good sign).
As previously ‘reported’ we decided to start out at a studio in New Jersey called Water Music, b/c I wanted a nice big room to record the drums in. It went swimmingly well. Big ups to Greg for ‘handlin’ his bizness’, and Jon Cohan for making the drums sound really awesome.
Now we’re back in NYC (whew) and back @ my home base, Gigantic, delving into guitars, and keyboards, etc.. Yesterday was our first proper day of this, and I must say, I’m totally shocked at not only how much we got done, but how well it went. Again, a really good sign of things to come.
A lot of people have been asking me where I thought this record was going to go, what were we going to do differently, and I guess the honest answer is, up until now, I haven’t really known. I don’t know that there has been that specific of a plan. But as the parts go on one by one, the vague blurry sound that has been burried in the back of my head is starting to come out of the speakers.
Word on the street is that Graham has a special treat for the blog today, so stay tuned for that, and I’ll try to scribble on here more often, maybe with some actual ‘recording lingo’.
