  • Опубліковано 4 лют 2024
  • We are stoked to introduce our new drummer, Cotter Ellis! We first saw Cotter play over 5 years ago and were immediately struck by his deep sense of pocket and feel. Ted Tapes 2024, coming tomorrow, is just a glimpse of the music we’ve experienced together so far.
    Each of the 9 tracks on Ted Tapes 2024 are different improvisational moments from early sessions with Cotter. They were recorded solely for the purpose of reference, not intended for any kind of release. The instruments and microphones were rigged up quickly, and the playing was raw and free from any expectations. The first track, Leo, is the opening pick up jam from the first session, the first notes ever played together. There were some consistent threads we all felt in the room throughout these early sessions; ease of communication, freely flowing ideas, and a feeling of effortlessness moving through different zones. We experienced a patience that allowed all our personalities to come out and energy to well up in new ways.
    This video is from the last session with Cotter before we asked him to join the band. We wanted him to meet our team and get a sense of what playing together on stage was like. We couldn’t be more stoked for what’s to come, stay tuned for more announcements tomorrow.

Crazy to see him click in this well so soon. Can't wait to experience this energy live. The countdown to seeing you all on stage begins now! Next level Goose, I'm here for it. 🥁🎶
