New Album Recording Journal – page 2

Posted in Recording Journal at 3:25 pm by Matt

This week is my first week “at my new job”, except I’m not actually working this week. I’m taking a class on statistical methods for cohort studies, which will be highly applicable for what I’ll be doing here, but I don’t start work until this upcoming Monday.

This is, however, my first week in Baltimore for any sustained period of time. We’re still looking for a place, but the search is pretty much narrowed down to two. In other words, we’ve almost found the recording studio in which the new album will be recorded.

Today’s news is that I’m fairly certain I won’t be calling the album “Baltimore”. I was doing some thinking last night, and had what I feel is a better and more appropriate idea for a title…except there’s a blank in the title that I can’t fill until I’m actually immersed in the city for a little while. So I don’t have a definite new title yet.

I can also tell you that I was never very attached to the title of track 7, “God in the Dumpster, Christ in the Street”. It’s too wordy and weird. I think I’ll relegate those lines to the lyrics or something and retitle track 7 the same thing I retitle the album, which means that this album will be the first PH album with a “title track” (not counting the unbroken one-song version of Dance With Divinity). Actually, this was going to happen anyway, since track 10 of the album will still be called “Baltimore” regardless of what I name the album.
