EL VY is Matt Berninger from The National and Brent Knopf from Ramona Falls. I think they are both super talented and consider it an honor to have been involved. I recorded drums for 4 tracks, one of which you can hear HERE.
Sam was one-half of the band The Format, along with Nate Ruess who went on to form Fun. Sam is putting out a long awaited solo LP at the end of this month, titled10 Songs, and all the drums were recorded here at Boom Crash. It was produced by Steve McDonald (of Redd Kross, and OFF!) who also produced The Format’s Dog Problems, and Fun.’s Aim and Ignite (both of which I played drums on). Check out THIS SONG and look for the album on 1/22/16.
There were tons of other exciting projects in 2015, with musicians from Sweden to Columbia to Australia…it still blows my mind that recording music this way actually WORKS! To celebrate, I’m again running the annual $99-for-one-song deal for the entire month of January. I’ll record one song for you — with as many takes as you’d like, and whatever percussion you’d like — then deliver multi tracks for you to have your way with.
This deal is good for everyone, whether we’ve worked together before or not. Just contact me here and we’ll iron out the details. And please forward the offer to anyone who might be in need of some drums!
Here’s to an awesome 2016!
