More information on the stems:
This song was recorded in Chicago, August 2016. The drums were tracked by Rick Fritz at Audiotree Studios, and the guitars & bass were tracked at our old practice space by Kevin Frytz. The auxiliary instruments were recorded direct-in at Austin’s apartment. Originally mixed by Auré Pereira in France (Flatcurve), this song also includes a soundscape stem that he created for this track.
Stars in the Ocean (Stems)
(Written in 2015) We recently have had to go back and make some mixing adjustments to "Stars in the Ocean" for a fun new project we're working on (sneaky sneaky). This endeavor has ended with us having all of the stems from that track, entirely unprocessed except their actual tone, and we were thinking it might be cool to hear some remixes and reinterpretations of this track. For those of you interested, the link is below, and you can do with them what you wish, all we ask is that you don't make any money off of them, and that you credit us and the album "Terrapin" if you post them online. But please DO post them online, and share them with us via email or Facebook! Our music is made to be shared and experimented with, and in that spirit, we hope you take this opportunity to play around with these stems.
