Albini's Electric Audio

SLOW SIGNAL FADE IN STUDIO 1/01/2006 7:00 AM Eastern

Melodic pop/rock band the Slow Signal Fade took time out from their recent tour to record nine songs with Steve Albini at his Chicago-based two-room studio, Electrical Audio. During a session that they called “one of the best experiences of their lives” (posted at www.theslowsignalfade.com), Albini tracked the L.A. band live to 2-inch analog on one of the studio's Neotek consoles, and later mixed the songs to 2-track. Look for the forthcoming album to drop later this year.
