Mixing went much faster than I thought it would, and we got it all done in one day. I touched base with Catrina Guttery at Rock 103. She has the first two singles now should she feel the urge to play us on Memphis Made. Lee at WEVL played “I’d Rather See You” a couple of days later on his regular Friday show. I’ve begun contacting folks at The Commercial Appeal and Memphis Flyer to see about some press, so that ball is in play. The last thing I want to mention is Distrokid. I expanded my subscription to include two bands for $35 a year. They say to give it four weeks to launch an album (Amazon, Apple Music, MediaNet, Deezer, Google Play, Microsoft Groove, iTunes, Pandora, Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube), so May 12 is out. We’re prolly looking at the end of May, depending.
Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we mix! We are frustratingly close to a finished album. In other news, we made our official debut on WEVL this morning. Modern World (Lee Grant) played “You Won’t Hear Me Say It” and then Lee and John Beifuss were nice enough to say our name a few times during the pledge drive. I’ve set up Facebook and Twitter accounts to go along with this site, and I made a couple of videos for the first two singles and uploaded them to our YouTube channel. The PR part of this is fun, but we need a bio.
Richard got “Close Call” done and now we head into final mixes. So the plan is to make notes, let Harry do his thing, and then see what we think. The good news is that all the master files should fit on a 32GB flash drive. For someone who remembers the good old days of recording to tape, this is some science fiction shit. One other thing I want to do before we mix is fix the vocals on the choruses for “Don’t Let ’em In.” That one is still pissing me off.
