Yellow Couch Sessions @ Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival
Hippo Campus: Way It Goes
When you're recording in a trailer in the middle of a festival, there's a lot that can go wrong - maybe a drum check starts in the middle of a take, horns on the highway behind us, sirens, etc. Listening to Hippo Campus perform this beautiful arrangement of "Way It Goes," I was holding my breath hoping that none of those things would happen. We got lucky and the result is one of my all-time favorite Yellow Couch Session!
For Hippo Campus, we used Peluso Microphone Lab's 2247se to capture Jake's vocals their P-28 small diaphragm tube condenser on his acoustic. Nathan is singing into Peluso's P-87 and the Vox AC15 (provided by our buds and sponsors at Empire Music) is mic'd with Peluso's tube-ribbon TR-14. Finally, I used Peluso's P-49 on the Ampeg BA-10 (also from Empire!) for Zach's bass.
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 awesome partner, Matt Dayak.
