this weekend, we will be heading back into the studio to continue work on our as-yet-untitled debut full-length. we will be moving from tiny telephone over to hyde street studios, where our ep was mixed, for the remainder of recording/mixing. scott mcdowell, producer and earth’s greatest living human, will be behind the boards once more. the spirit of papa john creach will be there as well, presumably, watching over us and guiding our every move towards psychedelic glory, and sneaking in sweet-ass fiddle solos, probaby.
we’ll be working on guitar and bass this session, then returning a bit down the road to do all the vocals and finishing touches, hopefully with a bunch of our friends in tow to form a big and probably drunken choir to lay down backing vocals and junk. however, we will be picking one song from the tracklisting to try and complete this weekend, which will then go on to be featured on “better days ahead, vol. 2,” the second compilation by our friends over at 20 sided records! it will be a sprawling, two-disc affair, with roughly a million billion amazing local bands that we have no business being mentioned in the same sentence as, quite frankly. there will also be a huge three-day release party over at kimo’s later in the summer, but more on that later.
in the meantime, those of you who are twitter-inclined can follow us at @bearsbearsbears, where we will be posting all manner of nonsense ramblings and studio updates and pictures of burritos and stuff, probably. of course, there’s always here, as well as facebook and bandcamp. but not myspace, right guys??* haha, SOCIAL MEDIA.
so stop by (via the internet) and say hello. help us figure out what to title our record! we are terrible at naming things! we named ourselves BEARS! BEARS! BEARS!, with exclamation points! THREE OF THEM!
*actually, we still do have a myspace, i think. don’t tell the cool kids.
