TSD//Subsuburban


As some of you know, we have recorded two tracks for the danish record label Subsuburban
http://www.subsuburban.com/ ). We have been somewhat secretive about it, waiting for
everything to fall in place.
Now everything's ready. This will be a really cool release!
The tracks will be cut on a 10", 45rpm picturedisc, limited edition of 300 copies and feature
a lot of extra stuff!
As with the "Comedown" album, we recorded the tracks at our rehearsal space, an old WWII
air-raid shelter, then we mixed them at Black Tornado Studio with Dr. Hansen. Finally Lars 
Lundholm did the mastering.

For the first time we have hooked up with somebody outside the band for the artwork. 
It was done by Danish artist Anders Christian Eriksen. For a long time now we have wanted 
to work with Anders. You can check out some of his stuff here:
http://anderschristianeriksen.blogspot.dk/

As for the extra stuff, the release will feature a piece of custom designed TSD blotter art 
(offset litho print with vegetable inks on chlorine free paper). The design for the blotter was 
also done by A.C.Eriksen.
Furthermore a zine about The recording process, the artwork and more will be included. 
It will be edited by the good people from Lapplandblog.
To make the release even more interesting it will also be packed with download codes to a
bunch of remixes done by artist affiliated with SSUB, as well as the original tracks!

The release is set for the spring of 2014!

Here's a teaser for the b-side:

COMEDOWN IS HERE!

Today our debut album "Comedown" is released.
It's available on vinyl (the first 500 copies include a free promo-CD) as well as digital download.
Bad Afro Records is the label.


The album was recorded by ourselves at our rehearsal space: a small and dark WWII underground air-raid
shelter (a lot of late nights turning  into early mornings).
We wanted to make the record feel alive, so we decided to do only a couple of takes while recording and
then make use of what was. No click-track, no drum-editing and so forth. We wanted to lose control, to
embrace the moment and the randomness.
A lot of things were tried out and we wrote many songs (twenty-something) before we settled on what
should go on the record. It was a collective process and we want to cut the individualistic bullshit and
acknowledge the fact that we're a group of persons, even though this seems to be old-fashioned these days...
To help us let go of our own premeditated ideas we invited some guests while recording; The Hobbit (Spids
Nøgenhat, On Trial ...) plays guitar on a most of the album; Christian Norup (Bite The Bullet, Highway Child
...) did a lot of the bass and Kåre Joensen (Robot, Baby Woodrose ... ) did some modular synth parts on a
couple of tracks.
We decided to do it the old-school way and mix the record straight to the master tape, doing fades, effects
and whatnot live without being able to make any corrections afterwards. It's not that we're retro fanatics,
though! We did the shelter-recordings on a computer and generally made use of anything we could, but the
records we love (and keep on loving) are the records with a real human trace. With faults, random
occurrences and everything that doens't always happen, when you're in total control. When you're mixing an
album live you're performing the songs one last time, and you have to be completely present and focused.
Everything gets recorded on the master tape and ultimately goes on the album.
We did the mixing at the amazing Black Tornado Studios with producer/technician Dr. A. O. Hansen. Black
Tornado is situated in the outskirts of Copenhagen and has a nice casual atmosphere and the best collection
of outboard gear Denmark has to offer, which we really made good use of.
After the mixing, Lars Lundholm mastered the record, also at Black Tornado Studios.


At 19.00 we're hosting a small reception at Café Svejk (Smallegade 31 CPH)
There'll be good beer and you'll get a chance to hear the record. Drop by and celebrate with us!

Release of "Mirror Pieces / Golden Needles" 7 " on Bad Afro Records

Pocket Studio in Copenhagen, with producer/technician Ralph Rjeily. 2 tracks from these sessions, "Mirror
Pieces" and "Golden Needles", are going to be released on 7" Vinyl on Bad Afro Records. There's a fair
share of "Bad Afro" records in our record collections, and we appreciate the work the label has done for
Scandinavian music. We are happy that this label is releasing our first 7".
We mixed the songs with Ralph and Lars Lundholm did the mastering, both was done at Black Tornado
