Arktik Lake have a new single and mad video released today. The song is Autumn Breeze and comes from the Ghosthound album which is finished, but at this point, we have not decided on a release date. When we do, I’ll post about it. The song features Nigel Macara and DC from Tamam Shud on drums and bass respectively, Tony Rumble on guitar and yours truly on guitar and vocals. Check it out.
We were in the studio today with the Space Summit project and this morning we had Evan come in to play flügelhorn and trumpet on three and a half songs, I say half because one of the songs was just two repeated notes at the end, so not really even half a song.
Afterwards, Rich came in to play piano on one more song and then Jason continued with the bass. Kevin swapped with John to engineer and we left the studio at midnight, another 13-hour day.
Just as we were thinking of leaving, the rain came down in buckets, the sky flashed, the thunder roared and the threat of the storm, simmering all day, finally came to fruition. We came home and looking out of the front window, we watched a soggy opossum forage for food, another creature looking for McDonald’s or KFC leftovers.
As the Space Summit project comes to an end tomorrow and a 28-day run of 12-14 hour days in the studio, I feel not relieved but a kind of anxiety for missing the involvement in something so cool and so intense. I’ll continue into next week helping Salim out with his projects, but it won’t be this kind of schedule. I’ll be in New Jersey from the 15th, though, more intense concentration.
We sent in the form today to book the removal trucks for The Archive. We are expecting to load them on Monday, March 11th and then have everything driven to Portugal. What a trip. If you’d like to help out financially, here’s a way to do it. If you’d like to get involved physically, we’re happy about volunteers who’d like to spend a couple of days in Wells, Somerset, loading boxes and checking out the gorgeous area. If this sounds intriguing, let us know here.
Off to bed, my eyes are hardening concrete.
