recording with the weed hounds pt. 2

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

more pictographs from matt’s basement with india 5,000. l to r is laura, cesco, and nick all listening intensely to their last take

the most accurate playback came from the headphones so we all switched off for about 40 seconds for each song

that’s how we do in the ghetto

in basements everyday is xmas

“i have a tongue”

up from the thirty-six chambers! it’s the ghost!

the part we’re looking forward to most is when we can record tambourine overdubs

lots of listening

and lots of laffs!

more shots of the ghetto rigs

on smoke breaks it was so nice out i took a few paparazzo, few not so paparazzo group photos

nick and cesco tried on various pairs of sunglasses

dischord house style

what a gorgeous day

hey matt

recording with the weed hounds pt. 1

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

my good buddy nicholas rheiss recently asked me if i would use my lack of talent and/or knowledge to record his new band india 5,000.

i obliged.

it was such a gorgeous day i ended up shooting some sort of groupy bandy shots. more of those on film to come.

they are a good band. if you were to take the 90s and then add some more ambient fuzz you’d have the w33d hounds.

the next night we went to trader joe’s to get food to eat. the sun was setting. they did vocals (first time for them both) and did a pretty awesome job. a little more to work on still then some mixing. matt is a hero for letting them use his basement to do all of this.
