NOTES FROM STREET LEVEL

The Pendulum Swing Sessions, 4/3 - 4/9: 

Every Friday throughout the recording of our second album, The Pendulum Swing, I will be recapping the week’s sessions.

This was a busy week for us. We interrupted our recording schedule to play the band auction fundraiser for KKFI 90.1 Kansas City community radio, which meant that we actually had to rehearse for the first time in a while. Tomorrow we continue this brief recording break with a Big Brothers Big Sisters benefit at Gaslight Gardens in Lawrence, KS, so with these two shows to play, we got… Read more

The Pendulum Swing Sessions, February and March: 

Every Friday throughout the recording of our second album, The Pendulum Swing, I will be recapping the week’s sessions.

I'm behind. I'm behind on the album and I'm behind on blogging about the album. But with a few sleepless nights, I am catching up, and The Pendulum Swing will still be out this summer, so no worries. ;-)

Our drum, bass, guitar, and vocal tracks are all complete and this weekend we'll start laying vocals. We also have a few other odds and ends to add, such as a little cello from Bill, horns… Read more

The Pendulum Swing Sessions, December and January: 

Every Friday throughout the recording of our second album, The Pendulum Swing, I will be recapping the week’s sessions.

Last year my attempt to blog the weekly sessions of our upcoming album was derailed by the fact that we intentionally derailed the recording sessions themselves. Rather than work on the album during the nice-weather months, we decided to put it on the backburner in favor of playing shows. Lots and lots of amazingly fun shows, which we did through the fall. We began the recording process… Read more

Review: Living Colour show at Knuckleheads, Kansas City, MO – 9/23/14 

I’ve been a Living Colour fan since their debut album, Vivid, came out. They are one of my five favorite bands of all time and one of the few hard rock groups I listen to. I hadn’t seen them live in nearly 21 years and Bill had never seen them, and so it was with massive excitement that we rolled out to Kansas City on one of our trademark guerilla trips. 
 
Knuckleheads is a big, classy joint in an area that doesn’t look like it could possibly contain such a place. You weave through blocks of industry just… Read more

The Pendulum Swing Sessions, Week 17: 

Every Friday throughout the recording of our second album, The Pendulum Swing, we will be recapping the week’s sessions.
 
It was a beautiful evening last Friday when we gathered outside The Percolator to party against the bombies. After a great Zydeco performance by Tommee Sherwood and Barry Washboard Barnes, we took to the concrete strip and rocked an 11-song set. The weather was awesome, the crowd was amazing, and the light was perfect for our video guru, Joseph, to film us. The recordings of four songs… Read more
