I recently recorded some new and old songs of mine onto tape in a couple of sessions at home. The idea was to capture some 'in the moment' recordings for release that were stripped down, raw and had an old school analogue warmth about them. 'The Saturation Sessions' is a result of these recordings, lo-fi and honest - if you listen closely you can hear the whir of the reel to reel tape machine in the background, it doesn't get much more 'real' than that!

The Saturation Sessions

Half Deaf Clatch

Compiled from 'straight to tape' recording sessions made on an Akai GX-4000D Reel to Reel recorder and two vacuum tube microphone pre-amps. Mastered using a Behringer Compsoser Pro Compressor/Limiter and Ultragraph 62 Band Equaliser.

Digital conversion for the CD was made at the very last stage of production, conserving as much of the recording's analogue characteristics as possible.

The Saturation Sessions' will NOT be available on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon and all the other streaming sites, this is a Bandcamp exclusive release
