Back in Easter of this year, Swamp Doctor spent a few days with Rohan Hill in the Innermost Gardens hall in Mount Victoria, recording what we pessimistically hoped would be an E.P. but turned out to be an album.
I'm please to report overdubs were minimal, post-production surgery was minor and painless, John Wilson did a mighty fine job of mixing and Rohan did a great job of mastering. And so, I give you: Pickles!
Of the 15 or so tracks we recorded, 12 made it on. These represent nearly all the songs we have been playing over the last year, and they represent the first official release of music I've had a part in writing. We're all extremely proud.
Pickles! is being released as a download and jar of pickles (only available at shows); on Bandcamp and on CD. We tossed and turned about doing a vinyl, and that might still happen, but we'd have to cut off a few songs.
Thoughts are already turning to new songs so let's hope the next release is not far away.
