LORD YOUTH EP RELEASE
All the songs on this record are ostensibly about the relationship between an old wooden ship and the cold water of the Atlantic Ocean.
This album was recorded in an old blacksmith’s shop in Berlin, Germany. We had to take down steel beams and build a whole new room to keep some sound in and other sound out. We installed a large, stained glass-window that bathed the tracking room in reds and greens and blues when the sun was in the right position. I listened to Skip James and Ege Bamyasi and read William Vollmann. I biked across an old airport every morning. Someone would start playing and slowly we would build a structure around the idea.
It took two summers to finish the album. We tracked dozens of songs and whittled them down to these six.
If you want to hear how we recorded them, come to this release show and buy the 10” vinyl. If you want to hear how other people play them, come to the release show and listen to six other artists cover the six songs. We will play a set of all new material afterwards.
