30/5/12 : Video Diary - Recording at Soup 2012
The Lost Cavalry in to record at the new location of Soup Studios in Limehouse. We've always been a fan of the studio in it's old location under the Duke Of Uke but the new studio is a different league - it feels like an established space that's been there for years, and Giles and Simon really know what they're doing.
In this video we're recording parts of new songs Telescope and King Of Kings, with another four new tracks also at various stages of recording. We're recording the drums, bass and electric guitar (with the bass DI'd and the electric's amp mic'd up in a different room, with the rest of us in the control room playing along as a guide for our bandmates. Then afterwards we overdub the cello, acoustic and vocals.
22/5/12 : Summer Soup
We're recording at the new Soup Studios tomorrow, I'm excited. We have 3 new tracks that are almost mixed now and we're hoping to get time to record 3 more at Soup. All this is in aid of us finally making an album this year.
Also, it's nice and sunny today which makes me wish I was outside - you can never see a laptop screen when out in the sun it seems. Also, I want to buy a boat to live on please. And finally, I finished (sort of) my home made Theremin last night - I'm going to post a little video diary about it I think. It essentially works though is a bit out of control to be honest... good for funny noises I guess...
12/4/12 : New keys to pimp on
I've treated myself to a new keyboard - a Nord Electro 3. I've been a fan of the Nord for a while and played a Studio one when we were recording with the band Knickers last month at OneCat Studios (which was a great studio by the way - recommended!). The Nord Electro 4 comes out in a few months which will have real draw bars, but I thought I'd just get this now so I can use it for Knickers gigs and recording. It's a beauty, nice and red of course and it sounds amazing.
We have agig with Knickers on Friday, first outing for the Nord! It's at Paper Dresses in Shoreditch and is free entry... Knickers stuff is all going really well, our first EP is out soon with a great video too for the lead track.
