Ninja Ninja Fight Darth Vader
Today, The Sexy Accident released Ninja Ninja Fight Darth Vader, our fourth full-length!
It's the best thing that I, personally, have ever made (not counting my kids. ;)
We tracked it last summer at WestEnd with our friend Steve Fisk.
I kept a detailed recording diary:
- Day 1 - Steve's arrival, What We'd Do
- Day 2 - Basics tracks, the joys of analog
- Day 3 - Elaborate tones, OzFest
- Day 4 - Completion of basics, recording with my son Toby
- Day 5 - Wrapping up week 1, You're Not Alone [Acoustic]
- Day 6 - Social media ban
- Day 7 - Overdubs for Love Doesn't Get Old, blown car battery
- Day 8 - Lots of vocals, Russell Thorpe plays sax
- Day 9 - Interludes for the You're Not Alone EP, old-timey mic techniques
- Day 10 - Wrapping up and celebrating
Thanks to Vinyl Renaissance and Erik Voeks for inviting us to participate in Record Store Day. I can't think of a better place to launch this thing than the record shop around the corner from my house! ;)
And of course thanks to Daniel Torrence, Camry Ivory, Michael Young and Mark Hamblin!
Have a great day, everyone. Watch out for Ninjas! And Vader.
