The album is being mixed and sounding great!
Only 7 days left to reach our goal.
Just to clarify, we must get to 100% in order to unlock the funds for the album. Otherwise, no one will be charged and the money canít be accessed.
In other news... Ryne just finished the design for the exclusive limited edition silk screen poster! Check it out
It's been so exciting to be working on mixes for the record!
To celebrate crossing the halfway point to our pledge goal we decided to post a preview of one of the first mixes. Don't get too attached though. There are still changes to be made, but you can hear the song taking shape! Head on over to our Pledge page to check it out. http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/scatteredtrees
There are 11 more days 'till the end of this Pledge! Let's make this happen! Many thanks to all who have gotten involved. Tell your friends, family... even enemies I guess, about how they can get the record ahead of time and maybe snag an awesome t-shirt in the process! Also, Pledge makes it really easy to upgrade to better packages if you want.
Well it's not THE day but we have started getting back the first mixes of the recorded material and it's very exciting. It's kind of like Christmas morning or sitting back and having grapes fed to you because all the tracking is done.
Since we are itching to pass some new music on to you guys we decided to post one of the rough mixes as soon as we reach the 50% mark. So let's do this so we can get our share on!
And on that note I leave you with this great song from the band The The called "This Is The Day."
Also, RIP Adam "MCA" Yauch from the Beastie Boys. The world will not be the same without you.
We just finished tracking the entire album!
Seriously, it was an amazing experience. We are extremely happy with how it turned out. Working with Dave Newfeld was everything we hoped it would be. His process is magical. It pulled energy and creativity out of us that we didn't even know was there. We recorded SO MANY tracks. He is a genius and I can't tell you how excited we are for this album. It was incredible.
Next up, is the intense mixing process. I think we get the first few mixes from Dave as early as tonight!!!!! When the mixing is done, the album can be mastered and sent off to everyone who Pledged!
Speaking of the Pledge, there are only 26 days left to reach our goal! We are pushing to make it to 50% by the end of this weekend!
((((((((((Once we reach the 50% mark we will post a first-mix preview of one of the brand new songs!))))))))))
You can easily upgrade to the next Pledge level, or pledge on new offers for friends & family.
And please pass on our Pledge page to your friends & family.
This is the control room in the Stars and Suns Studio. It's been our Canadian home away from home. Something about this room puts us in a trance where we forget what time it is and make music until we can't keep our eyes open... and maybe even a bit after that.
At the end of the night Dave usually pulls out a handful of amazing tracks from his DJ days, and we inevitably end up dancing ourselves back to inspiration.
Thanks everyone for helping us make this art happen.
