May McDonough & Company

    In The Studio Recording – bullyboywithaglasseye!

    Hey, it's me May with your May McDonough & Company update! We're in phase II of recording our full length album- BULLYBOYWITHAGLASSEYE. Rhythm guitars, bass, and drums were completely tracked over the weekend. Tuesday we begin lead guitar and texture work. All in all, things are moving along at a rapid pace and we couldn't be more excited. More importantly it's all ready very apparent that the sound we were working towards is very present in the album. I mention that, because there is always a looming self-doubt in the music making process in which you wonder if you really sound the way you think you do. I suppose it's a little like hearing your own voice on someone's voice-mail. It can be unfamiliar, a little alarming, or (if your ego is composed mainly of tiny fragmented glass shards, like mine) the experience can be even sometimes earth shattering and spirit breaking. Not to mention the more people involved in the production of the music makes chances all the more likely that the sound you hear in your head won't be realized exactly. But sure enough, this album is coming along very nicely- just retro enough to be a nod to our idols, just original enough to be a nod to our egos, and just raw enough to bind up our insecurities for another day. At least, that's how I'm feeling. Maybe everyone will just think it's cool. And it is. Anyhow, if everything goes to schedule we will release the album at the end of May 2014. Soon then!
