Photo Journal: The Making of the Love You Better EP

Intensive rehearsals in Monk's Garage began in February 2010.

Weekly philosophical discussions filled the margins of song arrangement sheets with all sorts of notes.

A huge milestone was reached after we finished recording the drums and bass with an old-school reel-to-reel tape machine. This is us celebrating in the control room with our producer Mell Dettmer.

After recording all the basic rhythm tracks, it was time to bring in some heavy lead guitar...

...some anthemic horns...

...and then we edited, mixed, listened, mixed, listened, mixed, and listened some more.

After mixing and mastering it was time for the packaging. Here's the final proofs for the Love You Better EP artwork designed by the Super Shantz Bros.

With the EP now ready for release, it's back to work on the full album, out later this summer. And just for you, we brought in some friends to get on! To be continued...
