Drunken Sailors is my latest full-length release. These tracks were all written and recorded between 2006 and 2007, once again, in my “Roomcording Studio”; but this time they were recorded with an AT4040 condenser microphone, hooked up to a preamp, and mixed on Cakewalk. So there’s a slight increase in fidelity as I tinkered with these new gadgets, and a slight decrease in fidelity in an attempt to give some parts & tracks that beloved (by me, at least) “lo-fi sound.”
The artwork was done by my good friend Kristen Ciotti. I told her a basic idea I wanted and she ran with it and made it awesome! Too bad there's only a few hard-copies of the CD in existence.
I like “hidden tracks,” and this CD's got one! If you download the whole thing, you'll get a song called "Let’s Go Exploring!" Let’s Go Exploring! was also the name of a band I was in with Matt Carnovale and Joe Jamsky. Both the song and the band were named after the last strip of Calvin & Hobbes. Much love goes out to Bill Watterson, as that strip, and Calvin & Hobbes in general is not only an inspiration to this specific song, but to my life. Thank you for all you’ve given us, Mr. Watterson.
Drunken Sailors features some of my talented friends on it. I listed them below. The album wouldn’t be the same without all their help.
This album was recorded between early-Spring 2006 and late-Autumn 2007 in the Roomcording Studio (my bedroom).
Bird & Moon is based on a comic of the same name by Rosemary Mosco.
