Our album is out!

Our 4th full length album, NIGHT TIL DAY, is officially out and available to stream/download or, better yet, purchase on vinyl!! We made 100 copies on 180 gram vinyl. The jackets are screenprinted and it also comes with a lyric sheet insert designed by our drummer. 

I just looked back at our show history and noted that our first show with our drummer Brandon was Nov. 24th, 2013, so we probably started playing with him a couple of months before then, and that was probably around when we started working on new songs for our album. So it really has been almost 3 years since we began writing these songs to finally having them out! Of course, 7 months of that was simply waiting for the pressing plant. 

We recorded this album with Larry Crane engineering, and we were very insistent on recording all analog, meaning we used tape every step of the way, from recording to mixing to mastering to pressing the vinyl. There was absolutely no digital conversion anywhere along the way (except to get the songs streaming online). This was an experiment we wanted to try and we are glad we did it.

We have two album release shows planned: Saturday Aug. 13th at the Prospector in Long Beach with Nectarine and Rats in the Louvre and Saturday Sept. 3rd at Bottom of the Hill in San Francisco with Slowness and Lavender Blush.

We also have a video for the first track off the album, "Violet Leaves." Watch it here:

If you go to our Bandcamp page and click on the individual songs, you will find lyrics on some of them. The album has 11 songs. I will leave it at that for now...Oh here's a mockup of a logo I came up with. If we get around to making it look good enough we'll make up some stickers and stuff with it!

Oh one last thing. We were guests on Rebirth of Rock radio show on Kbeach.org last week and that was a lot of fun! Thanks Jody and Judy for having us on.

Thanks for reading :)

recording begins next week, 8/20 show in long beach

Next week we begin recording our next album, tentatively called "Night 'Til Day" (also the name of one of the songs). It will have 11 songs: Night 'Til Day, Unrelated, 31 Down, Aaronsong, Violet Leaves, Flamethrower, Cosmic Cave, Moonsayer, Alone Again, Place of Mind, Won't Get There (not necessarily in that order). We're not sure how we will release it at this point but we are hoping to make around 50 copies on vinyl and maybe have some other formats as well, but maybe not. Frankly we are not all that hip with all the digital streaming services and we are growing a bit (more) disillusioned with the Internet as a means to share our music. We will likely have one or  two songs that we put up online but in the interest of making the physical album something special we may hold off on putting everything up online. It is certainly an interesting time we live in and the idea that bands are supposed to bend over backwards getting their music out there isn't necessarily one we subscribe to, but having one or two songs up is fairly obvious and easy enough to do. Beyond that it tends to get confusing and frustrating for us and there is only so much time in the day. Anyway I'll try not to think about all that and just focus on getting good recordings of these songs. Having a few days off to focus on our music is truly something that brings us great joy and helps get us through life! 

I may as well also say that we have a show booked for August 20th in Long Beach at 4th St. Vine with the band Balms from San Francisco: http://balms.bandcamp.com It is free and we are on first at 8pm.

We will also have a newish song released on a comp soon. It's a remix that Kelley did of a cover of the Doors "5 to 1" that we recorded awhile back. We have a different version of that song on a different comp but this one is not only a different cover version but the remix really is a radical interpretation of the recording and we think it is super cool :) 

We will probably post updates from our recording session on Instagram (username: spacewaves) and our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/spacewaves) and perhaps even Twitter @sarahspacewaves if anyone is interested in that! 

Thanks and until next time.... ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

4th album plans, Sing My Song cassettes, etc

Time for another update! 
We are solidifying plans to record our 4th album in early August. Larry Crane will once again be recording us and we will record on 2" tape. We will get basic tracking done in Los Angeles and then finish it up in Portland. Super excited for this, we have been working very hard to make this happen! 

Also Leg Records will be releasing our album Sing My Song on cassette and they will be available very soon!! Maybe even in time for our next show June 7th at Alex's Bar! This will be a fun show so come on out if you can.
