We’ll probably be doing some shows here and there over the winter, but in general we’re heading toward… recording! A new EP is on its way, and we’re shooting for spring. This will be the first full release with Julian and Jeremy (who featured on the Austin Sound Sampler track “Wind and Surface”) and the first recordings of any kind with Sean M on drums. We’re really stoked. There will be a couple new tracks and a couple new-old tracks. We’ll keep you posted!
Don’t think that just because we’re constantly changing lineups and breaking all our gear at Carousel Lounge shows that we haven’t been working, too. In fact, we managed to start tracking our next album before Sean G. even left the group.
We might be redoing this song from the ground up, since things are a bit different with Sean M., not to mention Daniel and Julian have honed their parts into something amazing. Either way, the song was transformed into something I never imagined. I hope Daniel feels half as good about the other tunes.
I was perusing the playlists over at KOOP 91.7 radio, where I knew a Sharks CD was circulating, just in case there’d been some action. And what do you know, “I Don’t Even” was played recently on the station’s fantastic Around The Town Sounds. The show is a fantastic multi-genre look at the Austin music scene where you can hear Mother Falcon next to Gary Clark and where Willie Nelson rubs shoulders with Brit Daniel and… Sharks. I’m kicking myself for not having heard it, even though I tend to listen to KOOP for large chunks of my Saturdays. I might have dropped a brick in my pants.
Anyway, if you’re a listener, call up the show from 5-6pm on Saturdays and request a song of ours. If you don’t think you’ll remember that, drop them an email at email@example.com and tell ‘em to play the band with the funny shark name.
Day vs. Night leading off the night at Carousel lounge.
We’ll be back at the Carousel on Saturday the 2nd, with Julandrew and the return of Day Vs. Night.
As always, Carousel has beer, wine, and mixers, bring your own liquor if that’s how you roll. It’s always a fun time.
