Many times, one song.

It's just after 7:30pm as I type this and we have been playing one song since about noon. It's crazy but I'm not sick of it yet. Being in the studio somehow makes it easier to listen to a single song many times over. I'm guessing it's because the song constantly changes and you never really hear the same song twice although it may feel like it. However, when listening to the radio and you hear the same song three times in one day for five days in a row, that starts to drive me nuts!

The song we have been working on is called 1000 miles and I think it may be one of my favorites of all the songs we have recorded. It's a different sounding song for us but still very much Downhere. Jeremy played his lap for this song as well as a small cardboard gift box filled with Montreal Steak Spice. It's pretty crazy what you can get away with when you start tweaking sounds. Put it through this unit then add that effect then reverse it and add some reverb and delay and you get something cool. Or really crappy! This time it turned out really cool. I can't wait to hear the end result of our work whenever we get there.

So anyway, until next time.

1000 miles is by far my favorite song on the album, great job! I've been listening to it over and over in my office, and I'm not sick of it yet either. I just love the vocals!
Take care.
