Dave Matthews Band Recording in N.O.Posted by Joe Maliszeski in Album News at 2:28am on Wednesday, Feb 4th, 2009
The Dave Matthews Band last week entered the studio to record for the new album that is expected to drop on April 14th. They recorded at the Piety Street Recording Studio in New Orleans, LA. The studio is located in the history packed ninth-ward and also goes by the name ‘Bywater’ (not Bayou). It is quite unique in its set up in an older building with large windows and accross the street from a dog park. Quite obvisously not your high end studio like Plant Studios where the band recorded Before These Crowded Streets and Busted Stuff. "Piety Street has all the power of the best studios anywhere, but it feels so much less threatening and costs less, too.", says Mark Bingham, sudio owner/engineer. Energy was high going into the recording. "I have a vision, with Leroi in my heart, I want the soul of the band to shine! I am on a mission.", twits Stefan Lessard. Initial feedback from the recording is very positive. We’ve gotten some pictures from the studio from Rashawn Ross (trumpet), where he teases the fans with some musical notation. Also seen in the pictures is producer Rob Cavallo. We’ll be sure to keep you updated on the process as information develops.
