Getting There.

Last week's leg in the studio was very productive! As for now we have gotten all of the drums tracked. I know that doesn't sound like much but believe you me that is a big step! It means that we have all the songs arranged, the direction has been decided, and there is no going back. Actually there is going back, we could re-record all the drums if we wanted, maybe nobody else in the entire world will like that we are now a prog rock jam band. (we are not a prog rock jam band) and that the entire album was produced by Ziggy Marley (no, it wasn't). So yeah. We can do WHATEVER WE WANT.

We have a lot of the basic tracks like bass and rhythm guitars and such. So I guess what I'm trying to say is we're getting there! This next month will be very important. There is no textbook for how long the bass solo should be, or which rapper will guest appear in which song. Things like this take time, and time doesn't grow on trees. But in the tiniest and most inconsequential part of the course of the human race, amidst earthquakes, wars, shady politicians, NBC's horrible decisions and the final season of LOST, Oh No Oh My is writing their new album, and their goal is to be done recording by SXSW 2010. Thats like a month and a half! Now there's no guarantee we will make it, and the album would still need to be mixed, and then mastered. But that stuff is boring, and there won't be any video's of us sitting around demanding for more phaser on the vocals. Cause thats like a given.

So yeah, the light at the end of this "finish the album" tunnel is growing larger every day. Our goal is mid March. yeah!

Funny you mention it, I actually do have a textbook dedicated to finding which rapper to guest on a song.

I will buy that book for ten million dollars final offer.

It's been almost a month since the last entry... any progress with the album? We need music, information - anything :)
