Look over there on the left. Just under the poole. It's the sweet bird of Twitter.

Click on that bird and it will take you to a page where (I believe) you can choose to follow my tweets. It's good!

Tom and Joe

These birds were in the studio a couple of days ago. Encouraged by their recent airplay on WXPN they are eager to complete at least an EP's worth of new recordings. The newly rechristened Summer Thief.

On location chez Trixi.

Trixi and Jeff

The last time I recorded her at the piano was for the Joe Ellis project To Not Have Been Misunderstood sometime earlier this century. You can hear her playing on his song Slough It Off.

Back then I used a stereo mic on her upright. This time around, for a punchier sound, I went with two large diaphragm condenser mics, a Perception 420 on the bass side of the soundboard and a Rode NT1 on the treble.

Sounds good! This will get mixed into Jeff's song Angel and a Star on the upcoming Vinegar Creek Constituency release.
