Carbon 7 again -- This was the opening salvo at our Solstice show last month. 10 minutes-worth of us making it up as we go. Recorded live at the Carousel Lounge.
We decided to come right out of the gates all at once this time, so there's not the usual slow build-up. I named the song for the sinewy, circular bass line I turned into the theme. This was also my first outing with my new cheapo analog echo (I turn it off after a couple minutes).
I'm finally getting to the point where I don't feel like I need to make excuses for the mix -- learning stuff about mic placement that's helped a ton with the drums. Considering I set up to record in 30 minutes flat & did this with 5 mics, 1 line-in, a FW interface & a MacBook, I'm actually ecstatic with the results.
