Stripped down version of "Dead River Co." from the Mountain Mirrors "Asylum Acres" EP.
The guitar is recorded with a Rode Nt5 mic pair. Vocals are the Rode K2 mic. I mixed it in Reaper with mostly Fabfilter and IK Multimedia plugins and the new, beautiful Exponential Audio Phoenix reverb.
Some of you guys might know that I planned on doing the entire "Asylum Acres" EP as a stripped down Nick Drake style sinister folk jam ep.
I almost finished it that way. Then, for fun I tried it out with some drums and bass and decided to re-record everything with the band - I was so impressed with Steve and Dave's playing styles that I bit the bullet and re-did everything.
The violin is played by Kurt Baumer. Kurt was originally intended to be the only guest musician on the EP.
Here's a re-recording of "Dead River Co." the way I originally envisioned it.
