Late Slip return to Brooklyn's Leesta Vall studios to record three songs direct-to-vinyl. The completely analog process utilizes a vintage 1950s vinyl cutting lathe that cuts the recording in real-time, direct to the vinyl acetate. No multi-track tape, computer recording or overdubs are used in the process.
The three original songs, 'Dry These Tears', 'I'll Be Okay' and 'Never Come Around' will be recorded live in the studio with several takes of each song. The result is a number of unique, one-off 7" records complete with custom cover inserts.
Pre-orders can be purchased direct at Leesta Vall's website.
Many thanks to Aaron Zimmer at Leesta Vall for inviting Late Slip to record again.
