The band came in February 2019 and tracked 2 songs in one day, and came back to do some overdubs and mixing with Adam. Some things you may spot in the video – a pair of Coles ribbon mics for drum overheads, a vintage ‘cream’ 421 on vocals.
The band have fantastic sounding instruments and were well rehearsed. I set them up to track the songs live, as the band had a great feel so a lot of the tracks laid down with the drums were kept, with us going back to overdub some elements such as 12 string acoustic guitar, and some vocal layers.
Having captured some vibey great sounding tracks made the mix process fun and pretty quick – the band came back to the studio to do a full analogue mix on the API board at One Flight Up with me, and we knocked two songs out in the day.
The band are playing a bunch of Sydney shows, follow them here https://www.facebook.com/TheNewSouthBand/
