Peluso Microphone Lab Presents: Yellow Couch Sessions
If one were to peruse my Spotify history, they would quickly discover my obsession with music from the 70's. It's warm, comforting and lush and the musicianship on display is always fantastic. Dangermuffin are a rare modern band capable of transporting me to that space and one need only to click the play button to understand why.
We used Peluso Microphone Lab's P-87 on the lead vocals and their P-28 (small diaphragm tube condenser) on his guitar. I want to talk about these two mics for a second. Peluso shipped them to me earlier this summer and I am in love with them. Placed in front of an acoustic guitar and vocalist, they automatically drop both elements into the mix with absolutely no fuss. The same can be said for the combo that we used on lead guitar/backing vocals for which we used the P-87 on guitar and my workhorse 2247se on vocals. Finally, we used the P-49 on the upright bass because that mic is unparalleled when it comes to capturing low-end nuance, and Peluso's P-12 on the bass vocals. Every time I plug in one of these microphones, I'm made grateful for Peluso's longstanding support of this series.
All audio for Yellow Couch Sessions is recorded and mixed by Steven Foxbury of Yellow Couch Studio. Video for this session was shot and edited by my main man, Matt Dayak.
