Yes I’m well aware of the photo being crappy this time, but that’s not the point of this blog. Today’s blog is about how me and the boys reunited again to shoot two news songs that are being remastered.
They will be remastering two songs called Straight Mucked (which is my favorite) and Pass Out from Blackouts. I stepped back a bit so they can do their thing and act natural, but as always we BS the whole time lol. W always seem to click just fine when were together. Course we get stuff done otherwise non of this would be happening. The moment I heard them play Straight Mucked though i was jammin that’s why when you see me with drummer you’ll see camera go up and down. Then there’s a huge pauses and the camera hops yeahhhh that’s me hopping. When we heard the playback all you saw was me head banging then at the final part I made a woooo response cause well that’s automatic for me. Then Eli just staright lost it and said WAIT PUT THAT ON THE TRACK!!!! So we all went from each corner of the the room and added that response to the track and it made the track a whole lot better :)
When they started playing Pass Out from Blackouts I was thought to myself oh boy what’s going to happen. Cause when you hear the title it sounds sketchy. Then I heard Andrew play calm and then it gets real quiet and Rylan doing a little tap on the drums symbol.
I was shocked cause it’s actually a ballad. I thought it was vibing then I saw Eli having trouble on the guitar (yes he plays guitar too). He has a solo in the end which sounded amazing, but to him, it wasn’t right. So we waited for literally an hour until they got it right. I respect that though because Eli may fool around and be quiet and all, but he’s actually a chill intelligent guy who just wants it right.
Lastly before the night ended there was a part where Andrew’s little brother played the Kazoo is that how you spell it? On one of the parts in Pass Out from Blackouts which was actually pretty cool to watch.
Once we were done recording we got to listen to both tracks being which is always so cool to hear back once the night is done. It was awesome shooting with these guys again and can’t wait to edit there two videos :)
