The Neo-Kalashnikovs recording and finishing up their Sophomore Album
We just finished our singles for our second album that is still untitled at the moment. A huge thanks to Olly Harmer (above) for recording and mixing three world class songs in a day and a half your work ethic is unreal!!. We are really excited for everyone to hear the new tracks and the band will be working the songs to radio internationally as well as the upcoming video for "Gorgeous baby".
When we were recording we ended up using tons and tons of compression so once the songs are mastered by Brian Lucey (El Camino: The Black Keys) they will be released to generate buzz for the upcoming album.
I also set up the drum mics like The Rollingstones to produce a classic drum sound which was great running through the Neve Desk. Volita also had here "Hot Cake" pedal running on maximum for most choruses and not one synth was touched in the whole session. The only overdubs that occured were Volita's vocal tracks and Gabriel playing the grand piano which sounds nice.
