…kind of lo-fi. I just have a phone and a small recorder. So, you guys have been real busy?
Ya, really busy. Me personally.
Is it cool if I post YouTube links?
What do you mean YouTube links?
Like if I put a link to a YouTube video of one of your songs…is that cool?
Oh ya, of course. Go for it.
I just want to ask permission first.
That’s totally fine.
Ok. What have you been working that you want to talk about, or mention…that we can look forward to?
Well, we’ve been working on a new album, Dead-Meadow-wise. And I’ve been doing this indie record label [Xemu - www.xemu.com]. That’s been an insane amount of work. We have several recording studios, I’ve been involved, recording different bands. And, I don’t know, I feel like when you add all that stuff up together it’s just like a big, time consuming…at the end of the day you never have time for yourself, you know?
But you’re happy, right? You’re doing alright, doing well?
Ya. Oh ya, totally.
What bands do you have on your record label?
Dead Meadow, Spindrift, The Morning After Girls
So you’re playing shows later this year, right? You have some shows coming up in Los Angeles?
You know, we’re always talking about doing some shows around LA because we’re here, Southern California in general. We have a tour in Europe that we’re currently working on.
Oh, nice. Where are you going?
All over the place.
Are you excited to go to any place in particular?
I think this will take us back to Italy, which will be really cool. Because Italy is a really fun place when you’re in a band. It’s kind of like a little band vacation when you go there. There’s a big psychedelic music scene there.

It’s a nice place. Music wise, do you have anything coming out that your excited for or new things that you’re trying out?
You mean like new songs that we’re working on?
New sounds, new ways to record, experimenting. Do you do a lot of that?
Recording? Yes. Ya, tons of it. It’s always kind of like a new…learning new things when you record bands, especially when they’re not your own band, that’s kind of a challenge. In a good way. So, ya I’ve been really excited to try to do some experimenting sound-wise. Doing some different out-of-phase mic’s and stuff like that. We’ll see whatever translates from my learning experience with the new Dead Meadow albums.
Well, that’s all the time we have, thanks Steve! I appreciate it.
Ok, awesome. No problem.
