In the Spring of 2014 we traveled to LA Spice studios in Lafayette to record some new songs and help studio owner Mark Anzalone work out some technical issues. He had recently bought a new board and wanted to have a live band play and check out the process. The initial goal on our end was to get a few songs for an EP. What ended up happening was we worked out some of the new material and this session was really a demo session for the new record. I could hear where some of the songs needed to be punched up or arrangements needed to be adjusted. It was a real fun session with Louisiana Music Hall of Famer David Hyde on bass and Andy Rogers on drums, Mark and Sammy Holbrook engineered and brought the battle of Boudin to the kitchen as we tried their favorite cajun country sausages ( Nunu's maybe edged out the competition but thats another story). Smoke and me hung out for another few days and overdubbed and mixed and had more boudin. Maybe we can release 1 song or 2 from this session on a Captain Trappiste volume.
