Very excited to announce that "Maps", the latest EP from Soapbox Army, was just released. We did drums and bass at Mission Sound with Oliver Strauss, and I recorded, produced and mixed the rest of it here at Proper Pop. Click the here to go to the Soapbox Army blog where Dan talks a bit about the record.
Check out the very nice review from inner City Geeks:
In other news ... The latest album from Young Oceans just came out. I played bass on this album. It's really beautiful. Not my bass playing per se, but the album. My bass playing is mostly a bunch of 8th notes on the root of various chord changes. Which is of course the best kind of bass playing. Anyway, you should check it out here. It's pretty awesome.
In other, other, news, the new Jon DeRosa album is done. It's awesome and I'm really glad I had the opportunity to play bass on this. We tracked it all pretty much live at The Bunker with the great Tom Curiano on drums and the great Charles Newman (Magnetic Fields) producing.
And now I have to go finish setting up to track vocals for the last tune on the forthcoming EP from a certain band called Pageant which you are of course going to love because Emmy Wildwood wrote some of the best songs I've had the pleasure of working on.
