05_28_08 Paper or… Paper

Paper magIn light of our upcoming performance for Paper Magazine and the Guggenheim Young Collectors Council party, the illustriously hip rag saw fit to let us write an article for them on any subject we saw fit. We chose ice cream. And thus we give you The XYZ Affair’s Guide to New York Ice Cream Shops.

Britt in the studioWell, we’re back in the studio! This time we’re recording with Britt Myers (pictured) who mixed our last album. We hauled ourselves out of bed to start recording at nine this morning, starting of course with the drum and bass tracks. Britt is a very down to earth guy, just like you and me. When he wakes up in the morning he puts his pants on one leg at a time. The only difference is that once he’s got his pants on, he makes gold records.

We’re really excited about these new recordings. The drum tracks already sound amazing and all we’ve done is tracked them. We’re hoping to have the recording done by June 1st, but it may get pushed back into late June if our timing isn’t just right.

We’ll be documenting as much of the studio time as possible, so add the link below to your bookmarks and check back often.

On a related note, we just came off 10 days of touring with Jukebox the Ghost, which proved to be a great time! Along with “the Juke” we played for over 1,500 people in Baltimore, changed a number of tires, sampled a little southern hospitality and made up dirty lyrics to each others songs.
