Rook Recording

It’s all over but the shouting for Shearwater’s new album, Rook. We recorded it in November at the Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas, among barred owls, pet donkeys, coyotes, and the ominous sounds of gas wells being drilled across the railroad tracks; rural north Texas retreats as Dallas approaches.

After a break for the holidays, we’ll be mixing and mastering in early 08, with extensive touring on the horizon. To see some photos we took during the sessions, click the dendroglyph above.
