I saw this band Tamaryn last night, opening for the Raveonettes. Although I don't see her in this video, Jessica, the bassist made me a saxophone out of a straw! Actually 2 saxophones straws that work. I was thrilled. So if you're reading this Jessica, get in touch!

Recording! 12 songs in the works

The Julie Ruin record's guitar parts were recorded in this back room, a.ka. my isolation booth. I could see the band with their headphones on standing with instruments through a very thick glass window. It was all kind of funny, us looking around like dear in headlights with funny plastic earmuffs, waiting for the engineer to say "rolling".

All isolation booths should come with coconut water. Here's the coffee thermas, Twin delicately set for the "right amount of" feedback and reverb, my Gretsch, and a pile of gear. Also rests an upside down Star Wars At-At, coutesy of the Beastie Boys.
