Stormy New England Weather
All recording sessions for From Isolation have been completed. All the tracking is finished and now were in the process of mixing the album. We've been doing about 4 songs a day, which has left us some time to hang around the city. After the last day of recording we took a day off to refresh and get the songs out of our heads.
The weather was beautiful the first week we were here, but as luck would have it, the day we don't have to do anything it rains all day. We'd been spending most of our time in the studio or in the one bedroom apartment we've been staying at, so we had to get out. We ended up spending most of the day walking around downtown Boston in the rain. Never did the sun come out once. The weather only varied from fairly gloomy to torrential downpour.
Despite the rain, it ended up being a good day. We saw Paul Revere's house, watched a regatta, and had some wicked awesome macaroni and cheese. By the way, according Jim, the thing to say up here a few years ago was "wicked decent," which seems weird to me because I don't think it has the same impact as wicked awesome. It's like saying something is "amazingly average." I don't know...
