We are so excited to present Psychedelephant, a new LP by Karlie Bruce and Chris Parrello.

Psychedelephant can be appreciated as a soundtrack album - a journey taken through some imaginary movie plot line, or personal dream narrative. 

Psychedelephant is a fully analog recording, from the original tracking sessions to the mastering, an AAA triple analog designation (track/mix/master).  No digital process was used during production.

Featuring: Karlie Bruce, Chris Parrello, Frank LoCrasto, Robert DiPietro, Richie Barshay, Ian Young, Mario Gotoh, Clara Kennedy, Maeve Gilchrist, and Derek Nievergelt.

Recorded, engineered, and mixed by Craig Dreyer at Mighty Toad Recording Studio, Brooklyn, NY.  Mastering for vinyl and cutting by Scott Hull at Masterdisk.

Risks and challenges

Releasing an album of recorded music has become increasingly difficult in recent years - it is difficult to match the standards set in the 70's, 80's, and 90's, without much of any institutional infrastructure to support. Twenty dollars used to purchase one CD. Now it is good for a subscription to lease all of the recorded music that ever was.

We have put our hearts, and wallets, into this project. Any and all backing - be it one LP or five, or anything additional - goes towards LP duplication, and vinyl mastering cost accrued.

Lots of love,

KB and CP
