Mixing of A Moveable Feast, the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2005's critically acclaimed Foxes & Hounds, will take place March 8-12 at Headgear Recording, hard by the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Headgear is one of the hottest studios in town lately, with recent clients including Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Coco Rosie, and Son Volt. Manning the board will be Headgear co-owner Alex Lipsen (keyboardist for up-and-coming indie rockers Jealous Girlfriends), along with co-producer/dubmaster Bill "Prince Polo" Szeflinski.
We are incredibly excited to be working with this great team!
A Moveable Feast is by far the most ambitious Sharp Things album yet. Recorded entirely to digital in a variety of basements, kitchens and living rooms all around the New York metro area, the LP's 16 songs capture for the first time the vibrant energy and soul that this 10-piece powerhouse brings to live performances of its elegantly orchestrated pop-rock.
Web Site Exclusive: a super-secret pre-mix rough of the song "Rey" from A Moveable Feast. This is nowhere close to the finished product — imagine it sounding about 1000% better — but will give you an idea of what's in store for you! (Please respect us and don't post this MP3 on the Internet, thanks.)
A host of guest performers helped serve the Feast:
The lead-off track on A Moveable Feast, "The Jumpers" is based on the novel "A Long Way Down" by Nick Hornby. Reliable sources tell us Hornby is a Sharp Things fan — and just like you, he's looking forward to a great new album!previous next
