Hollow Wooden Boxes and Various Waltzes (2011)

by Matt Baxter [United]

Recorded in the Summer of 2010 at Sound Asylum Studios in Santa Ana, CA. This album is a collection of songs about being patient, being in love, no longer being in love, being tired and just being. Drums on songs 1,2,& 4 were played by talented and friendly Brendan Murphy. Recorded and Engineered by the amazing Mike Troolines at sound-asylum.com. We made a mallet for the kick drum on The Things that You Love out of a drumstick and papertowels. Mike cut up a plastic Jack-in-the-Box cup to cover a really expensive microphone to get a cool sound for the slide guitar on Stakes His ClaimIts amazing that even when you have a really nice studio to record in, you stick to the ghetto contraptions to make things work. Also, Mike is playing the shaker on Stakes His Claim.
