I'm in Chicago at the moment with Speck Mountain, who are in the studio recording a new single, including "Blood is Clean," a cover of the Portland-based band Valet.
In Karl's words:
"We recorded this last month at Soma Studios with Tim Iseler... A lot of people do covers, but not many do covers of their contemporaries... It was the easiest song we've recorded so far; a day in the studio and about 2 hours to mix...The entire process was effortless-- we didn't think too much."
"Blood is Clean" is the UK bonus track on the band's album, Summer Above, to be released on Peacefrog in March. The track will be released in the US as a single. Formats, etc, TBD.
