Continued tracking last night on Emblems’ 3-song demo EP! (…or maybe it’s a digital 7” with a hidden track?)
Drums were done last week at Spectra Mobile Recording Unit in McKinley Park, Chicago, and we laid down all the instruments downtown at Vagabond Audio. I didn’t close the studio down until 3am.
Vocals and mixing are all that’s left before we can (hopefully) get these up before our Phantom Phest gig on Tuesday October 29 with Dr Manhattan.

Starting at MIDNIGHT tonight, Drinking Buddies is available on iTunes & other VOD services. It will begin to hit select theaters on August 23, 2013.
This project was an absolute thrill to be a part of, and I’m grateful for the impact—both personally & professionally—the film had on my life at the time Vagabond worked on it.
Can’t wait to attend the premiere party tomorrow night and give toast to the production!
One of the biggest things I was taught was to “go where the work takes you”, and lately the work has brought me to Chicago’s Revolution Brewing!
The last two days, I have been recording location ambiences and sound effects for an upcoming feature film that was shot in Chicago over the summer.
Keep ‘em coming!
Back in April, I had The Gentlemen’s Guild in the studio tracking a few songs.
They’ve since changed their name to The Zero Years and also added a third member. Check out this video they made using one of the songs from our studio session.

Friday night jams in Wilmette with Jess Godwin. Well done, Yuri, fitting all 8 band members in the shot.
I’ve never been to Wilmette before (though I have been close), and it was so very Rockwellian to see an old-timey theater next to a malt shop, a pizza place across the street, and a number of other local small businesses on the main strip of town. Also strange? Having cars stop and encourage me to cross the street.
I’ve been in a city for too long.
