Recording an Album in 5 Easy Steps

Step 1. To save time and make things as simple as possible, be sure to have some band members live at least 500 miles away.

Step 2. Try to coordinate the beginning of recording during many other time-consuming/life-altering occasions, like moving into a new house, quitting a job, working overtime, mid-terms or any combination of the above.

Step 3. Do all actual recording while everyone is really sick. If you can manage it, also break a bone or two, or something equally unpleasant.
Most importantly, nobody should get too much sleep!

Step 4. Spend all your money. On toys, food and booze.

Step 5. Garnish with a pile of noisy kittens to keep things rumpus-y 24 hours a day.

VoilĂ ! You're done.

If all goes according to plan, you should end up with a record you’ve never heard before because you’ll be too exhausted to remember the last month.

We All Inherit the Moon is at the pressing plant today and we’re happy and TIRED!!!

Many thanks to Vinyl Momma and her man at Erika Records for being so cool.
