Book of Matthew Darkly – 2 tracks leaked

Since a few people have been asking to hear them, I decided to leak the first 2 mixes from the upcoming “Book of Matthew Darkly” album by Lou Whitney and Donnie Thompson.  In this project the two of them recorded covers of Matt’s songs based on Matt’s demos.

The Manhattan Project… deep from the archive

I’ve been digging deep in the archive and I found something almost no one has heard… WARNING THERE MIGHT BE A REASON WHY!!!

Eric wrote:

My first band The Manhattan Project set out to record an album in the summer of 2002.  It was the day after I graduated high school, we loaded up the van and went to Kirksville, MO. Although we had previously spent months recording in our basement (which is how I began this journey) this was the first time any of us had been in a recording studio.

We stayed there a week practicing everyday above a dive bar called The Aquadome and recorded every night at this studio in the back of a music store. It was one of the best weeks I’ve ever had, although after the album was recorded the band split up. We realized we all wanted to do different things musically and we were attending different colleges in MO.  As a result we never released the album.

The Manhattan Project was:

Ringo Keener – Vocals

Jeremy Rootz – Guitar

Jimi Schuchmann – Drums

Andrew Wagner – Bass Guitar

Eric Schuchmann – Guitar

Mp3: So It Goes

This second track is possibly the first home recording I ever did. It’s also the Manhattan Project, I used a combination of Mini disc recorders, and computers to make a multi-track recording rig and then edited them together in Vegas.  This probably took me a month or two to finish…

MP3: Rain In Rome

Painted By An Elephant

Painted By An ElephantThese songs were recorded by our good friend Charlie Coyne. He recorded these while he was attending school in Saginaw Michigan. He’s in school to become a surgeon and has been traveling around the country for the last few years getting his degree.  I didn’t have anything do with recording these tracks but I did master them once they were submitted.

The Moodrings – Worth

Matthew Darkly and I (Eric Schuchmann) finished up a new song for one of our bands The Moodrings a while back.  We recorded this up at the Darkly Manor over a holiday vacation.  Later I made a music video out of old Halloween footage we had.
