Sound Capture

There is a strange place between writing and recording songs. Before you record a song, it's a living document: things change, iterations rise and fall. You can't even really make mistakes when playing because we haven't said "This is the right and only way to play this song." 

Once a song is recorded, it becomes known. It can be compared. Critiqued. It can be "wrong."

It is a funny tension we feel between writing and recording. On one had we feel pressure to have something to "show" for all of our work. On the other hand, there is something limiting about setting a song down and saying "this is how it goes." Hazel Blackburn is putting some demo recordings together right now and while we love making new things for your ears, it can be tough to set those things down and name them complete.

It is bittersweet. Almost a goodbye.
