Alright, guys… so this is my very first post on tumblr (what? Ashwin is a conformist douschebag? i second that notion!). This was very difficult for me to do, as I normally don’t express my thoughts in long, sustained thoughts. As many of you know, I’m a very straightforward person, so there’s no need to tell people my life in a seven page post. That being said, my life is filled with many, many strange events, which you guys are aware of too. Without further ado, here is the very eventful day that was recording day.
So the first thing you need to know is that I had a massive hangover today. I had gotten drunk the night before with Rohan, Shashank, and Rishi to celebrate Rohan’s departure into Arizona. Let’s just say I was hammered beyond belief. Rohan drove me home, and I told my dad I drove home at 6 in the morning. Naturally, he was upset with me and took my keys, and I was perfectly fine with that. Having no keys for a day is fine because it’s, well, a consequence.
Brandon Huynh came to my house at about 11 in the morning, followed by Kevin Suarez. We were set to record a new 820 Lights song, called “Until Your Cue Part I” at this place called Suspect Studios. We get there at like one, and Suarez and i decide to go get lunch while Brandon is recording the guitar. We walk to Frys for an hour…. did anybody know that Fry’s has a sandwich place?! Well we go back…. and we all record our individual pieces. The funniest thing that happened was one of the producers, Johnny, kept slighting Brandon as a joke. Here is a list of what he told Brandon:
The last one really happened. Anyways, we recorded the song and it went smoothly. It turned out WAY better than the two I put out in June
820 Lights “Until Your Cue Part I” will be released August 17th… Tonight Brandon, Suarez, and I will post a 45-second snippet on each of our tumblrs. Thanks for listening!
