Baroness in Studio, Working on New LP

Paste Magazine has brought us a rather hilarious update from the dudes in Baroness, who are in the midst of the recording their forthcoming LP in Plano, Texas, with producer John Congleton. And while not the most serene of environments, the band does seem to be making progress on the follow-up to 2007’s ‘Red Album.’

The Savannah, Georgia, band reflects that, “we have been here for three days and [we] have been hard pressed to find shade that isn’t produced by the backside of a concrete wall,” and “the only critters [we] have seen have been dead armadillos. It is funny seeing a dead armadillo. Unless they have been completely crushed by the vehicle that robbed them of their life, the dead ones are always upside down with their stubby little legs pointing straight up into the air.”

When the band arrived at the studio for the first day of recording, “no one is there and we sit impatiently on the concrete and place bets on what John Congleton will look like. What car he will be driving? Emo cut or hesher hair? Fat or slim? Vespa or fix gear? Vegan or meat eater? Fortunately, all of our preconceived notions of this man we are about to spend the next two and a half weeks with are crushed.”

By day three, the band’s managed to track four songs, and “as a whole, we feel confident and excited with the progress we have made. Our relationship with Mr. Congleton is growing more and more positive daily. His easygoing attitude and ability to make everyone laugh with less than four words is quite refreshing and highly welcomed. I look forward to the coming days and all that shall unfold.”
