Day three of recording our third album
Gypus´ broken arm is healed and we´re at it in the studio again. We haven´t recorded any new audio, but we´ve generated a whole lot of interesting sounds with our favorite soft toys that´ll be included on our third album. Our new darling is the splendid Reaktor ensemble “Scapes” by Twisted tools. It has successfully mangled our sounds into otherworldly timbres and sent our songs into unknown territories — just the way we Alpineans like it.
We´ve spent hours running through our archive of audio samples and carefully picked out sounds that will hopefully give extra shine to our third album. It´s certainly easy to loose focus and get lost in the world of noise when auditioning samples, but it´s pure joy. Check out these creatures…
We´re tempted every day to start mixing on our material, but we have to be patient little boys. We´ve always felt that mixing is much more than getting instruments to sound good and we like to think of mixing as one big final instrument that can radically shape, bend and twist the songs/sounds. In the coming weeks we´ll finally see the arrival of The Marble King and we can´t wait to get some royal guitar-voodoo on our tracks. Mr. Marbles can´t arrive soon enough!
By the way, you should come and see us at John Dee in Oslo the 29th of July and we also have a new show in Larvik the 6th of August. Fun!
