Ear Op

EAR OP is our first studio effort with local producer, Kevin McMahon, in his crusty old barnyard studio in Gardiner, NY, with the reverb silo out back. This is a kinda personal album for me about my childhood ear tube operations with a more minimalist live-band sound. Since Kevin takes this approach in his production style, I knew he’d be a perfect choice and spoke to him about the project vision a year before we recorded anything. We both wanted to capture the raw sloppy indie-energy with a nod to ’70s pompy prog-rock—the result is EAR OP, four songs specifically written for our live-studio barnyard band. After the ear tube operation, my ears never quite recovered and have been showered with nerve noise ever since, so Kevin’s ears made sure it sounded golden. Enjoy!
