D-land/Anthro/Neumann Update

Monday, November 24th, 2008

Lime Colony recently got to spend a little time in front of a much sturdier, sexier microphone than normal, and it turns out some of the material recorded may actually make its way onto the new album in some form.  My vocals from that session certainly won’t, ravaged and devoured as the old chords were by a recent hot sauce drinking competition I held with myself. 

Sometimes I just feel indestructable.  And I like to test my limits.

As I was saying, Colin was off frolicking somewhere in Anaheim, CA, soaking wet.  Our adjunct violinist was at a junction of anthropologists.  Earl and I finally made our way over to the recording-room again, this time with the talented Mr. Wickens, Neumann in tow.

I’m going to stop typing now.  The sunset I’m beholding is indescribably beautiful.  I wish you could see it.

 

Voices are for more than singing.

The voice of famed Lime Colony guitarist and singer Tim Garcia can be heard in the clip above.  Though it may never air on television, you can see it ad nauseum here and at http://www.crashthesuperbowl.com/#/gallery/video/1875/.

LPs, etc.

EPs are great, huh?  But sometimes they don’t fill you up, which in many cases, is perfect.  Like a salad.  A musical salad.  With beans (they’re good for your heart).  The album that is presently consuming all or nearly all of our energy (seriously, we come to work in shorts these days and all sport nasty, nasty beards), was going to be an EP.  But then it started getting (way) behind schedule.  We wanted to finish it before Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/Festival of Lights/Hail-Earthworms Day, but, as the very existence of this posts indicates, that dream is shot.  SHOT.  Blam.

Anyway, the New Album (Untitled), is going to be a bona fide feature-length album (or as some would say, alblum).  Crazy.  Also, as part of this new thing, we’re going to be trying to get back in the public arena – holding fund-raising carwashes and bake sales and trying to make live music.  This means several things, but I’ll let you figure them out on your own.

Stale chocolate covered raisins are almost as good as fresh ones.  But if you eat too many, you’ll want to vomit.  Also, you may be attacked by giant ants, as is happening in the picture below.

  

Happy Hunting,
