Sounds like old school Foo and this is why I LOVE this record.
this song on repeat ALL day. Going to buy this record right now.
I am a 90s kid at heart. And it seems like so are a lot of people not only from my generation but the ones before and the ones after. The idea to make a 90s sounding record in a Deadmau5 era of music might not be the most innovative of ideas ever but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that a goal was set, we reached it, and landed on our feet.
A lot of people don’t understand how much it takes to make a record and how much it still COSTS. If we had a different budget, I probably would’ve used a 40 piece orchestra with baby grand pianos at Abbey Road in London. And maybe auto tune would’ve been used. And maybe we’d be finished the record in a week. But none of that happened (thankfully !)
Instead, I wanted to create something that we might be able to handle on our own and still get a good result. Something that took time. That I’d learn something from. We could all call it our own and be truly proud of. The end result: way more grandiose than I imagined from the start.
We cut most of the recordings in a small front room of a house, aside from the drums. You’ve just got to have a bad ass drum sound. And we got that…in a warehouse…with awesome equipment used on most 90s records.
The songs chosen were meant to be raw in sound and feel to make the record what it is. And I drew from influences that did the same…

The photo above was shot by amazing friend and photographer JoAnna Cassidy. She captured the moment beautifully of what we’re all about…ROCK. You can see more photos from the show here. We’ve released a recording from the show as well. It’s raw, and near the end of our set which means that we were pretty wasted. I love every second of it. You can thank Jesse Soifer for the recording. We have added it to the MUTT EP and you can download it for free below…
Now that it’s summer…things are calmer. That doesn’t mean it’s not busy in band world. In-between the emails, the phone calls, the mixing sessions, the writing sessions, the pre-production filming, the band has taken some time to chill out. If you could have only had the meal Hans cooked the other day…
Andrew bought a kayak and has gone on wild excursions to toxic little islands ‘round the city. Alex has settled comfortably in South Philly, Hans has become a well known sous chef around town, and Rob has been working on post production of some films with his group French Street Films. Check them out !!
As a band we’re in the process of some big projects, including a record release, radio station performances, and music video ideas…
So stay tuned and enjoy the fucking sunlight !!
