This week The Watson Twins have selected our First Date:
We've spent the last few years collaborating and recording with music producers, musicians and friends Russell Pollard and J. Soda from the band Everest. Playing music and making records with folks is much like being married... you fight, you laugh, you cry, you pull your hair out...
But over the years you begin to form a language that helps you communicate creatively. We have certainly reached this point with J. and Russ, in fact they could probably produce our songs without hearing a single note. Ok, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but you get the drift.
Just coming off the heels of producing and playing on our new record Talking To You, Talking To Me... the fellas went almost directly back into the studio to record their second full length On Approach, the follow up to their 2008 release Ghost Notes, both on Neil Young's Vapor Records. Since their first release much has happened for the Everest boys, they've been all over the world pretty much touring with Neil, Wilco, My Morning Jacket... just to name a few, while also playing and producing records for other musicians.
As friends and fans of Everest we highly recommend that if you haven't heard their music you check it out and certainly keep your eyes peeled for their April 2010 release On Approach.
