We used the weekend to complete another song's pre-production, we recorded "Cool Hero", the same song that we posted on youtube and on this blog a while back. I must say that we are extremely excited about this.
And then... we used the rest of the time helping my (CF's) girlfriend to put a little internal branding video together for her company. We recorded an idea that we used in the draft of her video,
and we're considering whether to use this song, or one other one, for the album as well.
You can take a listen to the rough edit:
There is still a mountain of work to go into it, and we've got a bunch of ideas that we want to try on this one, but this should give you the gist of it.
We're slowly consuming the elephant, cannot wait for Saturday!

Look the pretty... thanks Maaike
We've been quiet on the blog front, but I promise that we have not been quiet on the writing front. After playing with Jacob Israel at The Watermark High album launch, we went to have a drink with him and we decided it's a good idea to do an album. We took the December holidays to solidify our thoughts, and met with JI the other day, deciding that the 30th of January will be our first day of recording.
I am experiencing that feeling you get when running up the down-escalator. Everything is happening just a bit faster than I can manage it. For instance: we have decided on 12 songs to record, and we're tackling the pre production at home, but we are only done with 5 songs in that department. It's hustle time!
We've been tapping a few resources (thank God for friends) to help us in some of the design departments, and I am greatly excited to see what these peeps will get up to.
If I can just get my damn research proposal in, I might be able to record a ditty for you guys, before we head into radio silence for the album.
If we're not back in a month... just wait longer
