The Marching Glum

July 23, 2007 2:07 PM

Navelgazer and I are in a Brooklyn-based indie-rock band called The Olivers. This past weekend, we recorded 7 songs for our new album. This one is called The Marching Glum. Please let us know what you think - we are curious as to how people will like our new material. (previously : 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

Not a long story. This was the first song I wrote when I got my first guitar when I was fifteen. The musical structure has always remained the same, but I've rewritten the lyrics to sort of poke fun at my fifteen-year-old self. That's it.

Hey guys, this is pretty powered up and I like it a lot. Sound like a lot of fun to play too.

The Olivers myspace thingy.

Any chance of you guys posting a live version of any of your songs? It would be a blast to hear you guys in action in front of a crowd.

Great stuff. Lots of energy, obviously. Did y'all record all or part of this "live" (e.g., drums and guitars at the same time in the same room)? I may be way off, but I think I can hear the room sound of the guitar/bass strings playing, and that, coupled with the palpable energy, makes me suspect it. I only ask as somebody interested in different recording techniques, especially live ones, looking for another data point.

We had the Drums and Bass in one room, and the guitars in a booth together. Then I overdubbed the vocals.

Thanks. I interpret Navelgazer's comment to mean that both rooms were recorded at the same time. In my book I call that a qualified "live", but, regardless, it sounds great. I hope you post details on the album when it comes out, and, if you tour, please consider Dallas, which has many venues, like the Cavern , which are most hospitable.

That's a lot of commas.

That was good and you should feel good.
