Dorian Taj is recording his new album "Giant". We've finished the rhythm tracks (drums and bass) at Pieholden Suite Sound in Chicago, the studio of the late Jay Bennett in Chicago Illinois. Overdubs and mixing will be done in Austin Texas by producer/engineer (and former Dorian Taj drummer) Alex Moore. We’ve really been taking our time to make sure the album is the best it can be. We need your help with the expense of finishing the overdubs, mixing, mastering, and of course record pressing!! The plan is to hire Bob Weston (bass guitarist in the groups Volcano Suns and Shellac) to master and cut the lacquer for smooth 180 gram audiophile sound! The album will be available as digital download and vinyl (no CD). Giant will include the new songs “No Future”, “Rocket”, and “S&H Greenstamps” whose preliminary mix was recently given airplay by WXRT Chicago’s Richard Milne on his show Local Anesthetic! It’s going to be an album worth getting and we think you’ll dig it. Thanks for your help in advance.
