Jake and a couple of his friends, Dan and Jack are working on recording an EP in “the studio” (my office). Today they set up a Ustream video of part of the recording process, and while I was disappointed to have missed it live, I was glad that it had been recorded.

Jack’s the one singing. You see Dan a little bit in the corner of the screen sometimes. Jake doesn’t appear on camera. He’s the one pushing the buttons, but you get to hear him talk so that’s something.

This sounds like a real departure from Jake’s usual stuff, and from the things that Dan and Jake do together as well. Much more song-orientated. That’s Jack’s thing.

Every recording studio needs the acoustic properties of an ironing board in the room, don’t you think?

You don’t have to spy on your kids anymore. They do it for you.
