Day 5 & 6 - Almost there...
We are so interesting....
Yesterday we got A LOT of things done. Jói came back from being sick, and basicly we managed to record all the basic drums for the record. No relaxing this day...
Today we've been doing the bass through-out all the songs and some drum overdubs - nothing more than that. BUT!!! Our good friend, Andri Freyr is coming in couple of hours to play drums in a song we like to call "Sjáumst í Virginíu" (See you in Virginia). That's gonna be fun - two drum kits in the song.
So when all that is over, the handsome men, Kjarri and Guffi can do their magic on their guitars.
Oh and yeah, we're probably going to have a pre-sale available on the album so please stay tuned!
Day 4 - A day without drums
Ahh so nice.... Not that Jói is ill, it's just that we don't have to listen to loud drums all day with him at home. But he's getting better so we'll record some drums tomorrow. Today we've been messing with 3 songs - basically the songs that don't have any drums in it (but they're cool though).
So yeah, nothing much to say at this point except that the recording process is going well in general.
Day 3 - Stuff
Right now Jói has been making a click track for a 13 minute long song with his drum sticks alone and the rest is playing Pacman, or Waka-Waka as it's called according to Facebook! The drums and the bass for Kastljós have been recorded along with some of the guitars - so now it's time for some guitar effects-jerk-off (YEAH!!)
After that we'll start messing with the 13 minute long song.
So today we're just trying to get some cool sounds for the drums. There is some flue running around in Iceland these days so everybody are just taking it slow - which is nice of course. Guffi is a bit ill, but he'll probably come around, if not we'll just get rid of him.
Scott, Silli and Biggi are all geniuses so we're in good hands. We haven't decided still how many tracks will be on the album but we're thinking around 8-10 songs maybe, so some of the songs are bit shorter than the songs on Reistu þig við, sólin er komin á loft... ("thank God" a lot of people will probably say!)
It's raining a lot this time so hopefully Kjarri and Elvar can take their long-waited trip on a rubber boat! If not someone's gonna pay..
Until next time; bye-bye!
