I have a lot of junk.
When normal people say something like that, you assume they have a lot of stuff. I’m not normal. If you were to see my room right now, you would possibly be scared. Unless you’re Shane, and then you call it an organized mess. I have more clothing, books, furniture, and sound equipment than I’ll ever need. It is easy for me to fill my entire car full of technology when I go to play a show or do a recording…but I’ve been thinking lately about the fact that I don’t really need all of that all the time. Too much stuff is sometimes complicated and confusing and makes a job harder. I need to learn how to use the right tools for a specific job. We play simple music, so we need simple mixes.
I’ve been working on a mix of a Honey Badger song called “Don’t Remind Me” and I just wasn’t happy with all of the technology and channels and plugins, so I ended up stripping it down to just the ambient room mic with a bit of eq and compression. You can hear the natural reverb from Gore Recital Hall, where we recorded. I like it. The Honey Badgers’ new EP, “Booth Bay,” will be ready soon ^_^
