Check out the new Sweat Power website that our Fairfield brothers Philip and Dominic set up:
That’s a nice looking site and there’s some great stuff on there. Sweat Power is an awesome new label, specializing in tapes right now. Our friends Maid Marian and Tall Too, from Ames, just released a split tape on Sweat Power. Mumford’s is releasing our upcoming record “Eyes” as a tape on that label as well! We love working with Philip and Dominic, they are so creative and energetic and lively. Together we are taking Iowa to the next level.
Sweat Power for life!
We had a great session at the Spacement Studio on Monday (May 10). We worked on the song “Two-Eye” which is turning out pretty crazy sounding. Kai recorded his killer guitar part, James laid down some auxiliary percussion and then Chris came over and we enhanced the insane choir effect of the call-and-response vocals. That song is almost done!
Our next session is on Thursday and we’ll be finishing the horns: Donny will record his tenor sax and Paul will rock the trombone. We still have a few more sessions to go after that, but the end is in sight. Bryon, the badass proprietor of the Spacement Studio, is really digging the songs and says that he’s itching to get into the mixing process. We totally trust Bryon to make the songs sound their best!
We can’t wait to release this record in July and then go on tour with our best buds Utopia Park. The tour is coming together, we’ve got the first week of it booked and its looking pretty epic. America is gonna feel the IOWA, guaranteed.
