The day she left on a 3 month trip to Egypt, Andras Pokorny dismantled his grandma’s East Village apartment and moved in all his recording equipment.
He set the drums on plywood board laid across a box spring. For some of the dirtier guitar sounds, he built his own pedals — a ring modulator and a fuzz box. On a close listen, you can hear an ambulance siren pierce the opening vocals of “Sun, Fill Me Up”.
Andras recorded, mixed, mastered, and played every instrument on High July except one. The violinist is Lehel Ujvari, who lends urgent tones to “Country Air” and hot blues to “Lucky Day” and “Memorial Day Weekend.”
High July is out now digitally and on limited cassette.
