A special thanks to Tony Leonhardt for taking photos at a few of our recent shows. They’re brilliant, have a look.
Today’s our first day in the recording studio with Mat Bainton. We’re off to a good start with drum tracks to Talkeenta and & Yet. This is the time to be very particular about every note, every drum hit, every everything. We’ll be up to this for awhile, so we’re getting acquainted with the whole situation.
Here’s Nathaniel getting all set up on the drums!
This coming weekend represents a milestone in the development of & Yet’s prowess. Dane, Nathaniel and Jonathan will be entering the recording studio to build the rhythmic foundation of our introductory six-song EP: A Bud Has Bloomed.
Some may say we’re long overdo. Dane Ueland’s song-writing has been begging for quality recording for many years and our current orchestration has been in development for over a year. But & Yet has continued to bide its time. This is not something we take lightly. These songs and the concept of this record have grown and evolved towards maturity for as long as necessary and never has it crossed a mind to record pre-mature songs poorly just to have a product in hand. No, the time has come because the moment is right.
A Bud Has Bloomed will feature:
A Rat in the Rafters
Into The Teeth
A Bud Has Bloomed
(not necessarily in that order)
We are eager to cement the rhythmic sections of these songs this week and will cut no corners in the layering of the complex parts that define & Yet’s intimate delicacy and dynamic intensity. Though we’re not yet sure on our release date, we’ll be thrilled to have a record to offer you, the fan, early next year.
