So, we’ve been recording…

At the beginning of August we decided to put together a small recording (commonly known as an EP). 4 tracks, 3 weeks, and 2 natural disasters later (ok so the hurricane was only a thunderstorm but the subways in NYC were shut down for a full weekend, and if you live here then you know that’s definitely a disaster!) we finally finished recording this little bad boy. It features a brand new song I wrote for the occasion that was arranged by the Nubatones titled Fugu (Shams Alhurria) [Wake up (Freedom’s Sun)] as well as traditional pieces and covers we find inspiring. Below you will find a list of tracks and credits, and make sure you check out the photos above of our recording process.

I want to give a big shout out to the band for being the bad ass musicians that they are, and especially to Mawuena Kidjovi for not only playing the bass (among other things) on the recording but for also being an amazing sound engineer and allowing us to use his beautiful studio (Collective Home Studio NY).

We are planning on having a big release party at the end of November with more details to come but until that time comes you can enjoy listening to the songs on here, and here, or you can come to one of our shows and snag one of the very limited edition pre-sale copies we will have (only 100 copies will be made).
