Hello Tumblr! My band’s new record is out. It’s called Get Scrappy!, and you can listen/purchase from our site (powered by Bandcamp). It’s also on iTunes.
Get Scrappy! is a much louder, nuttier, and rockin’ record than our first EP was. We pushed ourselves and experimented with fuzz and delay and unique amp setups (my Farfisa organ was being played simultaneously through two amps at one point). It’s lower-fi, a little more garage rock. It plays off a lot of our influences - power pop, indie rock, riot grrrl, art punk, lit rock - and warps them into our own ways.
The record was produced by me, recorded/engineered/mixed by Drew Gabbert here in Fort Worth, and mastered by John McCaig in Seattle.
I’m really proud of how it turned out, and would love for you to buy a copy. Downloads are just $4 on Bandcamp (downloadable in any format you wish + lifetime streaming in the Bandcamp mobile app), and CDs are $5 + shipping (and include the download as well).
For the combo organ nerds, I play my trusty ‘65 Farfisa Mini-Compact, as usual. It’s fed at times into a variety of pedals - on the title track heard above, it’s being fed into a Nocturne pre-amp and a Big Muff fuzz pedal, then split to two amps, a ‘63 Fender Vibroverb and a Peavey Classic 50 Tweed, the combination of which we mic’d with three microphones. The track above also uses the Farfisa’s infamous Multi-Tone Booster feature for extra ridiculousness. On a couple of tracks, I also play a Hammond organ, a first for one of our records.
Go give it a listen!
