Studio and Dock Boggs






We arrived at the Charlottesville studio last night just after sunset. This place exceeds my expectations so far. It's beautiful, comfortable and has everything you need, but it's not overly lavish or excessive. It's perfect actually.

We spent last night getting set up and getting initial sounds. Today we started tracking in earnest. We started with a song called Cold Mountains, which we learned from the singing of a woman named Texas Gladden.

We're now working on a song called Calvary. We learned this one from Dock Boggs and shifted the melody by one beat in relation to the accompaniment to give it a really funky syncopation. Greg got the idea from his mother who's a dance instructor here in Charlottesville, VA. Her young dance students often mistakenly count things one beat off but the result is really hip.

Although the photo in this post could be a future portrait of Greg and Aoife, it's actually Dock Boggs and an unnamed woman.

Yahoo!

My wife and I are ecstatic that we'll get to hear a new CS album this year. Any idea when? Possibly in time for your May 21 gig up in Maine (I think it's May 21 anyway)?

Musical question for you - you recorded your last album somewhere in New England, if I remember that right. What criteria drive the decision about what studio to use?

Thanks for keeping us posted, Corey, and please tell the album producers that everything sounds fine and they should just release it now.
