Our 7MP3 for March is "Was A Ghost", recorded at a Ross/Juliano show at City Arts Factory in March of 2007. Recordings of this show have made the rounds amongst our fans for years--Jason and Tommy did mostly covers and tracks from the soon to be released day&nightdriving. "Was a Ghost" was a live favorite from the first time the band performed it and this stripped down version allows the lyrics and Jason's voice to really shine.
A quick aside about day&nightdriving...This was the first record we recorded over time in multiple places instead of the standard method of blocking out a bunch of studio time and rolling tape. Jason and Thomas recorded much of the record in home studios (theirs and co-producer Brian Paulson's) before bringing Casey and Giti in to track drums and bass at Mitch Easter's Fidelitorium. This way we got the big sounds in a big room and the more imtimate ones in more intimate settings. We finished the record in early 2007, right around the time this version of "Was A Ghost" was performed. If you don't own day&nightdriving, I suggest you immediately correct that problem.

We just announced three shows in May and are gearing up for summer shows. We hope to see you soon.
