I am only leaving this up briefly, as I’m just teasing the upcoming FW Weekly Music Awards comp CD…but this is our song that will be appearing on said CD. “Between Brownstones,” co-written by me (I did the lyrics & progression) and featuring a lead vocal by our award-nominated Harley Dear.
It’s a loose, fun, off-the-cuff/live performance-style recording, and it’s the first time our entire new lineup has been in a recording studio. We head back next week to record our full-up debut EP. So excited!
Finalized artwork for our new song - first time the full band has been in the recording studio. It’s a fun, loose, off-the-cuff/live performance style recording that will appear on the upcoming 2013 Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards compilation CD, as well as our own uses. :)
Headed to the studio after work today to do final mix & mastering approval on the song we recorded for the Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards compilation CD. When we wind up using it ourselves, I’ve put together some artwork for it.
Also, have you voted for us in said awards yet? No? Please do! Head over to the ballot and vote for The Diabolical Machines in the “New Artist” category and Harley Dear (The Diabolical Machines) in the “Female Vocalist” category!
My friends Jennifer (guitar, theremin, vocals), Robby (drums, vocals), and Josh (bass, vocals) are in an incredible local psych rock band called Year of the Bear, and they played last night at The Wherehouse here in Fort Worth. I took some photos, which you can see above.
The newest addition to the band’s array of instruments: a 1970 Ovation Eclipse, a hollowbody electric coated in the company’s Lyrachord material. Featuring a six-way adjustable bridge, dual Hofner 513 pickups with individual volume and tone controls, an ebony fingerboard, and a really mean sound. We’ve loving it. Thinking it’ll go to SXSW.
