Album:
Victory!

FMGreen - Yellow Plants

Sometimes I listen to my own music at high volume and I pump my fists in the air and smile broadly.

I really like how all of Victory! turned out, and I especially love how the tone of this song changes at the 1:20 mark… and then again at 2:07, when we make you tilt your head like a confused dog… and then again at 3:00…

Anyway. As with all FMGreen, it sounds better the louder you play it.

(I can’t thank our friend Brian Aloisio enough for the work he did engineering this album.)

Here’s the view from behind the console while we were tracking the drums for Victory last Thursday.  Generally speaking, recording sits just behind performing live in terms of things that I most love doing.  It’s a hell of a lot of work, but few things are more satisfying than hearing your songs take shape.

High-res Four Days Later (by steelopus)
November 11th, 2010 through November 14th, 2010.
It was four long days, but we got an incredible amount of material recorded and we’re in good shape to finish up Victory! tracking with a few days ahead of us.
We owe a special thank you to our friend Brian - the talented engineer that has been recording all of this for us and making magic happen inside his computer.  This process wouldn’t be as fun - nor would we sound this good - without him.
