What is it like for a small, independent band to record an album. Follow this blog and you’ll learn all about the album-making process and the songs. We’re making no promises on update frequency but we’ll do our best!

Recording done. Fuck yes.

This week we completed the recordings, finally. It took a while and definitely its toll, but they say diamonds too are compressed of shit. Or something. While I quite enjoyed the studio time, and Hämeenlinna is actually quite an ok city, I will not miss the driving between Helsinki and Hämeenlinna. We recorded 14 tracks…

Learning by Doing and Listening

Obviously I am no pro, but I do remember writing my first proper song when I was 15 or 16. There’s been quite a few since. The interesting thing about song-writing is how much you can learn and grow by studying all the hundreds of dimensions of a song. For a long time I’ve been…

Humble and Grateful (and Studio Progress)

Last week’s show at Mascot was exceptional. We hustled like maniacs and you guys, the Flush Mob, turned up in masses. Some from Slovakia, some from Germany, some from Sweden, some from an open bar with a global super star… Doesn’t matter how far or close, we are eternally grateful. And a special thanks to…

Studio Days 1-4 (25 January 2020)

Here we are, at Sound Supreme Studio in Hämeenlinna Finland. Today is our fourth day recording with our producer, the esteemed Mr Hiili Hiilesmaa. Hämeenlinna is one of Finland’s oldest cities (the oldest inland city), it has a really old castle and is the birth place of Jean Sibelius himself. Sound Supreme is a great…

The year is coming to an end and it’s time to be grateful and reflect on… blah blah. No, it’s not. It’s time to get to work. Our pre-prod is done, we’ve done the listening and the songs are pretty much ready. Janne and I are fine-tuning guitar arrangements, and as a full band we…

Captain’s Log, November 19th 2019

Last week we finally got around to record the second round of the pre-prod recordings. We had the privilege to visit our gig buddies’ Röökipaikka’s rehearsal space for the recordings and the nicest man alive, Mr Kari Degerman, took care of the engineering work. 12 songs recorded in two nights. Some of them in one…

It’s Lasse writing again. This month I turned one year older and developed pneumonia. Pneumonia was also known as “the old man’s friend” because it helped old people die faster back in the days. A terrific month indeed. In less than two weeks we’ll do our second round of pre-prod recordings for the album. We’ll…

Gig Announcement: January 31st 2020 Helsinki

Exciting news! Best kind of news! First gig booked for 2020 at Bar Mascot in Kallio, Helsinki, Finland. We’ll be joining a really exciting band, The Black Bubbles, for an event we’re calling “The End of Tipaton”. Mascot is a place we’ve not yet played at so this is a new stage to conquer. This…

Captain’s Log, October 6th 2019

Let’s be clear about one thing. This album has been in the making for a long time. A loooong time. This approach to start talking about it is our own psyching method to make sure it actually happens. The first part in achieving one’s goals is to tell someone else about that goal. So here…
