Ornament recording day 4

The songs are done. Jake, Knox and Mike did gang vocals and then we packed up all the gear. Within the next couple of weeks we'll have it mixed and get the ambient tracks recorded, then it'll be done and ready for Thrashed to do their thing. The artwork is on it's way to being finished as well.

Ornament recording day 3

Well the first Moutheater full length is almost done. Got a couple guitar tracks finished up on Saturday night then I came in today (again, technically yesterday at this hour) and finished them. We got bass and vocals done today as well. It was a late night. Tomorrow we do gang vocals and pack up all the equipment.
We also have a bunch of photos (courtesy of Mr. Nathan Novak) to pick from for the cover. The whole back of the building we recorded in is abandoned. We went back there and on the roof Friday night and Nay Nay took a ton of photos of all the creepy shit we saw. Some of the dudes found a dead bird on the roof tonight and we might do something with that as well.

Ornament recording day 2

Been tracking drums all day. Almost done. Then we'll start tracking guitar. I'm hoping to finish at least half the guitar tonight. Stoked about tracking really late tonight. We're in this huge room on 21st street with large windows overlooking the street. Everyone's staring at us haha. The bums late at night are the best. They'll stand right outside the window dancing and shit. They're stoked as fuck. I wish I got that excited about anything.

Ornament recording day 1

Got everything into the ballet studio today (technically yesterday at this hour). Spent all day setting up and getting everything situated. We got the drums done for 2 songs. We'll finish those and get guitar out of the way tomorrow if everything goes according to plan.

Saw Cough and Tombs last night. Both bands ruled it hard. Cough was so fucking good. A Moutheater/Cough show will happen soon. It must.

The world is crashing in around us

It's so painful to watch everything you love turn to shit. The world as we know it as music lovers and music makers is changing forever, and fast. Enjoy the last of the smoldering ashes while you still can. RIP Reptilian Records. You will be missed.

You'll always be an easy target..... long as you speak open and honestly and don't worry about what others think. It's a tough and unfair world. Clear your own path no matter what anyone else says.
