6:51pm – Stratosphere Sound, NYC
Sitting in the lounge sipping black tea and listening to Luke lay down some gorgeous drumming on our first track, Beach Dream – the recording of the new Jets LP has begun! We’ve been in New York for about a week doing rehearsals with our producer, Emery Dobyns, and today we’ve actually started tracking the first tune. It’s been an incredible week: warm, sunny days with morning runs along the Hudson River, afternoon walks through Central Park (see picture below!), epic fun nights of great food and people, and the luxury of spending so much time getting inside the songs with Emery (who is a serious dude with a great ear and impeccable taste in both music and wine). We’re excited, ok? WE’RE SO BLOODY EXCITED WE’RE GOING TO EXPLODE!!!!
