TWIG has finished their new 6-song EP, titled “Make a Monster Bright”, and it will be officially launched EVERYWHERE (including here on their website). This EP Is currently going to only be available on digital download (Bandcamp, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, etc.).
Lift Me Up
Say You Might
The EP was co-produced, engineered, recorded, mastered by Mike Montgomery at Candyland Studios in Dayton, KY.
The EP was originally recorded on reel to reel tape, in order to get a “vintage warmth” to the drums and bass, and then transferred to digital format for the rest of the tracking. There were various cool production tricks used in the recording process, including reverse loop tracks on Subterranean Man to get a psychedelic vibe, reel tape loop effect on vocals for Go, cool vintage-style microphones to bump up the “dirt” on a few vocal tracks, and other great tricks by Mike Montgomery.
In addition to the normal TWIG lineup, Troy Maynus (longtime friend and live TWIG contributor), played percussion on all of the tracks.
As usual, the art direction for the band is headed up by David Estep, longtime friend, for his art/graphics company liquidlines.com.
The EP was recorded from April to September, and this is TWIG’s second recording effort in the last 8 years. They hope to work with Mike Montgomery again on another project!
The EP will be officially launched on 10/6 at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, KY, where TWIG will headline and play with three other fantastic local bands:
New Sincerity Works (Trio)
Wilde Violet (featuring TWIG bassist, Mike Maley)
TWIG would like to thank their fans and especially their families for all of their support!
