What a friggin' treat! MNOP's newest record is coming May 1st, and we couldn't be more delighted. For one, it's a pretty blistering run-through of some of our recent crowd-favories. These recordings are honest - very little studio indulgences were had, and what we did embellish was (at least we think) quite tasteful. Secondly, Joe friggin' Cosmo Cogen on the drums! Our newest family member, on display here proudly. He's a peach, and this is his recorded debut with MNOP.
Finally, we're really happy to send this one off into the world. After having played this material out in the last 2 years, we hit a stride here and are stoked with how accurately this recording captures this band. Phil Duke (Duke Sound, Continental Recording Company) was at the board for this one, engineering and recording this session in our home-turf stomping grounds of Bushwick, Brooklyn. He's a class act, and we can't recommend him enough. Mastering was done by Nick Hogeboom, who has seen MNOP perform many times over 5 years and was genuinely enthusiastic to offer his abilities to the project - his thorough familiarity with the band lent itself perfectly to putting the chef's kiss on "Illuminated Body."
