Peluso Microphone Lab Presents: Yellow Couch Sessions
Johanna Samuels: Stop You
Despite a few clunky scheduling errors on my part, we were able to host Johanna Samuels and Dan Knishkowy (otherwise known as Adeline Hotel, whom we've previously featured in the series) for a couple outstanding songs. I'm so glad that it worked out because I have not been able to get this gorgeous song out of my head since hearing it the first time. It's great, right? Don't you love this song?!?!?
For vocals, we used Peluso's P-12 with the windscreen that comes in the box. I know it takes a little away from the beauty of this mic, but it let's me get really close, intimate vocals while keeping plosive blow-outs to a minimum. We also ran Johanna's keyboard through the Vox AC15 (from Empire Music!) and mic'd it using Peluso's tube-ribbon TR-14. Lastly, we used Peluso's small valve P-84 on Dan's acoustic. I know I say this a lot, but I really love Peluso's microphones. This series would not be the same without their many contributions.
