The Wild Honey Pie

Figure 8 Head Engineer Eli Crews and WHY? go way back. Eli mixed two of their finest albums (Alopecia and Eskimo Snow), and recorded and mixed the 23-song Almost Live from Eli's Live Room in a couple of 18-hour days in 2008. They are still an amazing band, and Yoni's (Inoy Flow) songwriting really shines through in this stripped-down live-in-the-studio session, our first with The Wild Honey Pie.

We were blessed with the opportunity to collaborate with one of our favorite bands. WHY? is too good. Recorded at Figure 8 Recording in Brooklyn.

Slurp! A holistic recording experience! Come early to a session at Figure 8 and you may find yourself in a morning workout with @ithinkimphil, followed by homemade miso soup and a chess game. @benjaminlazardavis (of @cuddlemagic, here today to record with @okkervilriver) did it right this rainy morning.

Friendly reminder that we have the most beautiful backyard featuring a grill, a picnic table, a ping pong table, a batting cage, and an ever-expanding garden. Come for the music recording, stay for the sunshine and grilled meats.
