? Squid record brand new Record Store Day release live from
Metropolis Studios
? The live to vinyl session will be broadcast on The Steve Lamacq
Show on BBC Radio 6 Music as part of Record Store Day's official
launch event. ? The Bristol experimental band will be recording two new songs onto a
two track EP, live and direct to vinyl at Metropolis Studios -and BBC
6 Music's Steve Lamacq show is giving fans the chance to listen in on
this unique live performance. ? Recording ‘live to vinyl' is the original process that artists used to
record music for public consumption. There's no modern technology,
it's simply playing and recording the songs in one take. In today's
digital age, the art of capturing music live to vinyl has long been
forgotten, but Metropolis have recreated the experience using their
unique cutting lathes. ? Part of the magic of recording music live to vinyl in this way is that
Squid must get it right first time. Throw in the added pressure of an
audience listening live at home via BBC 6 Music, this is a recording
moment unlike any other in recent history. ? Arthur from Squid, said ahead of the recordings “We've been busying
ourselves away on some scores, arranging orchestral versions of two
of our favourite tracks from Bright Green Field. The process is the
same as ever, starting off with no clue of what we're doing, stumbling
along together, each inputting our ideas into the music until it starts to
take shape. Were so excited and also quite terrified to release this
little gem for Record Store Day 2021.” ? Not only does the live radio broadcast of this event make this an
unparalleled moment in recording history, but the studio and band are
also navigating extraordinary social distancing measures due to
COVID-19. Gavin Newman, from Metropolis Studios said ““as you
would expect, Metropolis has had to go above and beyond Covid
protocols over the last 12 months in order to operate effectively and
support our incredible roster of clients. Being able to provide that safe
platform from which artists can create, perform and broadcast has
been overwhelming. We sincerely hope that this live to vinyl
experience with our friends at RSD, Warp Records, Sound
Performance and BBC 6 Music will help kickstart the wider live
community with a newfound confidence for the year ahead.
