Silver

Released first from our website (june 2009) is now also a Fan CD (released jul 2010). When I was working on the songs that would end up in the Interesting sessions, I came up with an early version of Silver. I had this very discordant riff (the intro) and tried to put some ideas with it. If memory serves, the only part that was written later was the instrumental. I just had a crappy recording of me playing the guitar (unamplified) parts. Around may 2009, we were into the recording phase and knew we would be for some time. Todd suggested we put a song just on the web site to let people know we were still doing stuff. We were using a presonus firepod and just recorded everything through that. We just started with drums (Todd played to a scratch guitar track) then I recorded guitar and bass. I did my vocals and hoped we could finish the whole thing in one day but there just wasn't time. The next time we recorded Todd's vocals and Todd had added a few VERY interesting effects. I think I did the first mix, then Todd did a better one, then he made the final one. The differences are very subtle but Todd's final mix is superior to my original one. By fall of 2009 I had added Get it Together to the recording list and had started to think about a Silver fan CD. I knew we had a few good songs from the CD release and settled on Disappate. Get it Together was recorded very quickly but was the last of this (and the packaged songs) to be mixed. In early 2010 we made our third video for Silver.
