A delighted hello to everyone!
We are still blinking and rubbing our eyes in disbelief every time we look at the generous outpouring of support that we've gotten so far. Thank you so much! This euphoria can only mean that a pony gets a new pair of wings every time someone donates to our project. Tell your friends!
Meanwhile we are hard at work preparing for our first weekend of recording, which is fast approaching. The first step (for us) in the recording process is to make simple one-mic demos of all our songs, so that we can listen critically to them from the outside and decide which ones need pennywhistles and which ones need tambourines or trumpets - and so that we can share them with our brilliant recording engineer in advance of our recording dates. Also, we are able to share them with you!
Please enjoy the four demo songs below. We find them actually quite listenable even though they were each recorded with a single microphone in one take. "Molly" and "Dinosaur Priest" were two of our earliest scribblings, "Call if you like" and "Tigers" are two of our latest. We'd love to have your comments and feedback as well!
(Scotch recommendation: These are four of our "softer" songs and are best paired with an airy Speyside or Highland Single-Malt.)
