Studio Exclusivo Part 1

So Hacienda has just finished round one of recording the new record. It was quite the challenge but I'm excited for everyone to hear it. Its rockin, its pop, its country sometimes, its soul sometimes, its Hacienda I guess. I've been in a bunch of studios by now, and let me tell you, "Nothing comes close to this one!" Its the most comfortable and fun studio I've spent time in. Special thanks to Engeineer Collin, and Studio assistant Danny. You dudes were Aces. Dan Auerbach is producing and I can't say enough about the dude. He's on top of his game in every facet.

I know you'll be able to hear it on this record.

We got one more round of recording at the end of the month and look for the record to come out in stores Early 2012. Something will most likely come out before then too. Not sure what exactly.

Check out these photos taken by Alysse Gafkjen. You'll see the proccess. Basically we listen to demos, jam for a bit, track it, and mix it. It ain't brain surgury, although you wouldn't know it by the ulcers it gives me. Heres the process. Step 1- listen to demos. Step 2- Jam. Step 3- overdubs. Step 4- tweak shit. Step 5 listen back and mix. Step 6- Tweak shit again. Step 7 drink bourbon and listen to play back. Simple enough.
