Thanks! That's definitely the most animated vocal in the cd, but our female singer has a lot more lead vocals on this album, she really gets to wail at the end of "dirty red dress" and "same thing"

We're locked in tight with the head of the music department at a local college, he runs a fairly well respected program and has plenty of connections to get us "bro deals" as he calls it on other services. Mixing was rough on both of us, there were issues ... more »

Damn. I watched Valley Uprising last year and found it really cool to hear the "hip" history behind it since I love Yosemite.

Thanks! From the small group of people we've shown it to, I've realized people either love it within 10 seconds, or they're just like, "eh." We tried a bunch of random sounds in the studio on this one, from breaking a scrap piece of plywood, I'm the ... more »

No worries, not every song is for everyone

Here's a few more though, just to give a wider image of what we sound like. https://soundcloud.com/moto_davis_88/fireside-relics-the-sun-alternate-masterhttps://soundcloud.com/moto_davis_88/fireside-relics-dirty-red-dress These are definitely our 2 heaviest songs, The Sun is another male/female shared vocal, Dirty Red Dress ... more »

Super excited about it! Been working on it way too long and have had lots of sleepless nights. But anyway, here's the title track! Flame away if you want. https://soundcloud.com/user-431577717/shot-out-the-saddle

I could only hope the DESS makes its way onto a MX bike, so I can know what it feels like to have it throw a code in the middle of a moto or the woods, and have to take it to a dealer constantly to remain functional.

Definitely do the summer trip for the northern half! Yosemite, Redwoods, and Glacier are absolute must sees!

It was the perfect amount of campy without going overboard.

Me hiking at Consolation Lakes in Banff NP a few years ago. Definitely want to go back
Reply to Fuel injected crf450r. Which is the best and why? 2/3/2017 10:07 AM

It was actually from blip ping the throttle before it was at operating temp. If you fired it up, and gave the throttle a few quick twists and let off instantly, unburnt fuel would hit the valves and run into the crankcase. I broke that habit and never ... more »

I absolutely loved my '10 with a lowering link and stiffer fork springs. The '12 is basically the refined version of it.

After visiting Banff NP in 2014 the move has been on my mind as well...

Thanks for the insight! My band is finishing mixing on our new album that was half tape/half pro tools and I've been taking a lot more interest in the engineering side of it.

Reply to Recording at ABBEY ROAD 2/1/2017 3:25 AM

Damn, that's awesome (again)! What other projects have you worked on? And with a studio like that, working on that large of a project, how does it all go down? Does Abbey Road still have a tape machine up and running, or is it all pro tools now? How ... more »

Awesome! What sort of work is it?
