A few notes I should have included earlier,
Briefcase Blues is a raw, unmixed cut from our studio time last week
The rest of the tracks are live, in a very horrible (acoustically, at least) room.
That and there are two drummers, actually (yeah, we're that crazy).
Its pretty good. I would love to hear something a little more polished so I'll check out what you get from the studio when you put it up.
Will do! Once we get the final stuff done we're thinking of attempting to put something up on CDbaby or a site like that.
Two drummers? That's cool. I have no idea how you pull that off - must take a lot of practise and organization.
Don't worry about the bad recording quality - it's just the mark of a trying band. And if your good-ness can shine through all the static and dodgy levels then you've really got something good going on.
We pull it off with a lot of practice.
There's actually only a few times where they will be playing the same thing, usually on really straight beats, or in one of our songs (that I wrote) that's in 7/4. Other than that, one drummer will take a bit of a lead, and the other will do more accenting. When we play some of the clubs and bars downtown, one drummer will play the set and the other will play bongos, djembe, random little percussion instruments, etc.
