Well, the cool cats in this shot are (left to right) Matt Redlich, Louise O’Reilly and Paul Hannan. Louise an Paul are the band Laneway and this is late last Saturday night at Matt’s studio in Brisbane, Australia. Matt is holding a reel of 2 inch tape because we were recording everything for the new Laneway album in the old school analog fashion. The tracks are sounding awesome and for those of you who are already Laneway fans I can tell you that you won’t be disappointed with the new offering. Their songwriting is as sharp and insightful and evocative as ever, Paul’s guitar licks are superb and Louise’s vocal tones are even better than they were a couple of years ago on their debut album “If you don’t need it, let it go”. We still have a few sessions to go before finishing the recordings but everyone involved has a good feeling already which is a great sign. And Matt’s new studio space, affectionately named Grandma’s place, is just so super cool. The inside of the humble exterior is all 70’s playboy wood panelling and soft lighting. A very inspirational space for music and dare I say it, late sexy evenings.
get this cool as shit album
