Fall is here and things are slowing down a bit at The Office, which is good because we have some catching up to do!
Amory Sivertson’s new album Human has gone through its last set of mix tweaks and is now in the hands of mastering engineer Chris Ascher! The record is expected to be released by Wax On Felt Records this fall and should appeal to fans of Regina Spektor, Joanna Newsom and Joni Mitchell.
We also just put the finishing touches on HarborLights’ debut full-length (on which I had the distinct privileges of playing drums as well) and that too should be off to mastering soon. Fans of Explosions in the Sky, Mogwai and Pelican, take note.
White Woods Extended Family, one of my lesser-known and lesser-appreciated projects, is about halfway done tracking the followup to their debut EP Meet Me at the Sunbelt. The band recently restructured into more of a collective that will see them releasing new material featuring a constantly-changing lineup, but this EP will consist of the original 5 members.
Some of my other, more aggressive projects (Urethra Franklin, Plague Survivors) will be tracking new material as well, and if anyone is that interested in stoner doom or blackened crust, I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop haha.
We have some more upcoming sessions pending and I’m really excited for them, but in the meantime, we’re drawing up the final plans, enlisting all the help we can get and buying materials to rebuild our control room! Hopefully the monitor section should be complete by early October - we’ll post pictures of the progress in the meantime!
