Mourning 101: The Yells

Hey! In case you haven't heard the new Cold War Kids album ... you should! It's pretty awesome. 

Also, in case I forgot to mention it, the new / first EP from The Yells is done and you can listen to it HERE and then tell me how cool you too think it to be able to tag Motley Crue in a self promotional blog post. 

We tracked most of The Yells at the great, newish location of, Strange Weather with the help of Mark Alan Goodman engineering and Ted Comerford (Jonas Sees In Color, Jukebox The Ghost) producing with the band. We tracked most of the vocals and some incidental guitars and keyboards here at Proper Pop. King Of Love and Mustard Car were mixed by the very great Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Ben Folds, Pavement) and The Mourning was mixed by yours truly. Final mastering was done by Dave Collins (Motley Crue, QOTSA. No Doubt).

Here's a picture of the Yells featuring the very handsome John Kengla. 

In other news ... yesterday I turned in mixes for the last couple tunes for the new Pageant record! Probably make some revisions in the next few days. Looking forward to sharing these very very cool songs. 

And in other, other news, today Chris and I are tracking something called ROCK GUITAR for a new Mother Feather song. Stay tuned for fresh meat! 

Rock On.
