Industrial folk

A few nights ago we wandered in to a speakeasy that our friend Greggory Stockert told us about. We'll leave the name out so it can keep its word of mouth stature. Nevertheless, we witnessed some amazing performances and we knew we had to set up a session with them.
One of those musicians was Dusty Santanmaria who asked us to set up in a great open building down in the industrial area.
We arrived and set up while the man who owned the place, Dylan Lee Johnston warmed the room with his music. As the night went on we started drawing the attention of more and more great musicians. Also on the list was the haunting Tasche De La Rocha, Jesse Nelson, and Galen Ballinger. Dylan's space was wonderful but the sound really came out in to the large open space that we moved in to later. We recorded late in to the night, well...morning, with the aid of the sound of that room and a couple bottles of red wine. Once we finally cut, Dylan's space opened up again for an incredibly spooky impromptu jam session. A very late but also very successful evening for the ampp team. Kipper out dy
