Lately, I’ve started taking pictures of my amp and effects settings during recording sessions as notes, in case I have to figure out how to reproduce the sounds I record. Hence this picture of my Sovtek, and this other picture of my effects (Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Boy and Fulltone Catalyst). I take pretty good notes in my recording sessions, but I would LOVE an easy way to attach pictures (and video, and documents) to objects inside Pro Tools and Ableton.
The second Ghost Ghost record released today is No Clothes on Ragged Island. From the liner notes: “These ten songs are based on the life of poet Edna St.Vincent Millay. The project was conceived by Kevin Peckham and Karl Ward on February 20, 2010, as part of the RPM Challenge. Each song is a scene from Millay’s life, told in chronological order. All songs were written on February 21, just one day shy of Millay’s 118th birthday. Arrangement, recording, and mixing were completed within one week. And to think it all started at an all-you-can-drink bloody mary brunch, several hours before a Ghost Ghost show.”
The long-delayed, often doubted debut record from Ninth Street Mission was released today. The record called Ninth Street Mission, which seemed like a fitting name. You can pick it up on iTunes and Amazon MP3, and a lot of other digital music stores. All of us in Ninth Street Mission have moved to other projects now. The record was three years in the making, but a great three years.
