Indiana pop punk band THE ATARIS have just released a collection of unreleased tracks recorded by Kris Roe.
Recorded and mixed by Bob Hoag at Flying Blanket recording in Mesa, Arizona over two days in November, 2011.
Everything tracked on a 1978 Neve 8078 console, using a 1940’s RCA 44DX ribbon microphone.
All songs recorded live in one take, no edits, no overdubs, just me and a 1948 Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar.
All songs mixed to analog tape.
If you like what you hear, please come out and show your support at of The Ataris upcoming tour dates listed below.
If you do not live near one of these cities and still wish to help out,
Donations are welcome and very much appreciated.
My five song live E.P. is also still available here on our band camp page.
It includes five songs taken from a live performance in Los Angeles during my last acoustic tour.
It is a completely separate, unrelated live recording.
The Ataris new full length “The Graveyard of the Atlantic” will be released in 2012 on Paper + Plastick.
Thank you for listening.
