Robert Hudson and I spent thirty-two hours in a car over a three day weekend to play one showcase in Austin, TX for the 2014 South by Southwest music festival... But the showcase was cancelled... due to rain...
Lucky for us, our good pal Spencer Garland (who was also putting us up) offered to help pass some time by recording some tracks in his studio on Hammack Dr.
He whipped out his trusty 8-track and 2-track tape recorders, threw up a couple of microphones and we captured the three songs that would soon comprise 'Travis County Macaroons'.
I do believe that as the faders on that old analog Tascam board rose, our spirits followed suit, and the gloom of that rainy, musty, Texas day was snuffed out forever. It suffices to say, the trip worked out after all.
SO! Offered to you today (and tomorrow, and the next day..) are three tracks that are my first to record to tape, and I'm proud to share their texture, character, and saturation with you in all it's beauty.
I want this to be free to you just as it came free to me. Pay only if you would be otherwise spending your money on AXE body spray. ENJOY!
