Sedgewick EP: Week 1-4 / by Samuel Brownson

Helloooo,

We are currently in the production phase of a double EP set for release in the winter. While it's only been a few weeks since we've started tracking, with the help of co-producer Nicholas Gunty (of Francis Luke Accord), we're off to a stellar start. Just have to put on some finishing touches and then it's on to the mixing phase! Yay! Keep an eye out for our first single, "The World in You" streaming mid-September.

All the Best,

SW

The amazing Alison Gaines and Alice Kraynak rehearsing before tracking at Consensus (owned by Nick's brother, Joshua Gunty) in South Chicago. We wanted to get a lot of room sound for the strings so we rented out this space for a few hours and put up three room mics, a close mic (Avontone CV12), and our handy Zoom field recorder about three yards in front.

We tracked group vocals with an MXL condenser microphone and the CV12 (the mic that Taylor Swift's producer uses on her vocals, nbd). It's a tube microphone, so you get a healthy amount of grit without sacrificing crispness. Group vocals are probably my favorite thing to track because so much organic stuff comes out of it. Listen for 'em on our tune So Long, John for our upcoming EP.

This is half of Nick's bed piled into a closet. It is also where we recorded vocals last week. If you can get past the claustrophobia, it's a very effective home recording technique used to deaden vocals and leave sonic room for plug ins (digital effects). Used the CV12 for this.

...and then if the closet doesn't work out, you can always try a bathroom.
