Late Slip return to Leesta Vall Studios

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.

Late Slip at Leesta Vall

Late Slip recently went into Brooklyn's Leesta Vall studios and recorded two songs direct-to-vinyl for their "Office Sessions". The completely analog process utilized 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 were used in the process.

Late Slip performed two original songs, 'Don' and 'Love Me True', live in the studio with five takes of each song to produce a total of ten one-off 7" records complete with signed, custom cover inserts. All pressings are SOLD OUT on the website but there may be a couple for sale at our shows.

Many thanks to Aaron Zimmer at Leesta Vall for inviting Late Slip to record - great fun!

Lynchland Members Mix #1

Available to stream now - the David Lynch - Lynchland Members Mix #1 featuring Diamond Field and the Black Lodge Girls (Lucy Black, Jazzi Marzcat and Havana Chase) with Chris Ward on sax, with a cover design by myself, featuring an original photograph I've always though was vey 'Lyncherian'.

The song's lyrics are by Havana Chase and are inspired by "A Real Indication” by Angelo Badalamenti And David Lynch From The "Fire Walk With Me" Soundtrack.

As Lynchland describes the compilation:

"A few weeks ago, we asked our members to share their musical creations with us (via www.fb.com/Lynchland). We didn't anticipate receiving such a positive response: about one hundred songs were submitted, and we had a very difficult time choosing only fifteen to appear in this first mix....

Thanks to John Fryer from This Mortal Coil, who submitted a fair amount of fantastic tracks for us to chose from; to Johan Reinholdz, from the great metal band Andromeda (www.facebook.com/AndromedaBand/); and to Kevin Wolzt, who helped with the sound design.

A special thanks to Andrew B. White, who created the cover art and appears in the mix as Diamond Field, a great synthwave project that we highly recommend."
