Live Tracking is FINISHED

14 songs tracked in 8 days of recording | principle recording is now finished | more overdubs still to be done | then we fist fight over which songs make the album.

i gotta say i am super tired, thankful, and surprised. to watch a litter of songs that i've only sung with a guitar or a piano grow the muscle and sinew of a band gives them a density that up until now, only i could hear. we've all midwifed these tunes through a second birth and there are some moments! i have explored music with each of these guys individually when i had lived for a spell in their town (shaun - columbus,oh/ jim - florence, sc/ jason - nashville, tn)so when they all swung at my pitch i knew we were in for an anthropological experiment. the relationships formed amongst strangers in two weeks of living together/making music together is an phenomenon of laughs, insecurities, wrestling, empowerment, wierd meals, and fraternity. i think we all feel empty and full all at the same time.

Mama is relentless during overdubs but it hurts so good.

One night we took a break climbed 1/4 the way up Break Neck mountain. This is after we made our decent.
