I LIKE THIS WIND - RECORDING IN BRUSSELS

In February of 2008 label founder Capt. Daydream spent five days of winter holiday in Brussels visiting I Like This Wind in the cosy neighbourhood of Ixelles. Yeah, Belgium... land of tasty beer, quality chocolate, amazing comic books, real waffles and art nouveau buildings. In short: good things.
The plan was to check out the city a bit, but also to get some recording done. It was possible to find a few cool shops among all the posh antique shops, hair dressers and unlimited number of churches. Took some work. Most importantly the basic tracks of guitar and vocals for a handful of great songs were recorded. When the last small bits have been recorded and the whole thing mixed we hope to have a nice EP ready later this year.
The basic material for a future music video was also shot. A rather spur of the moment thing which looks like it could turn out really nice once its edited.
On this page are collected a few impressions from those couple of days.



Night time... sending those Gibson sounds through the old Vox amp.


Rehearsing and tuning a bit.


Laying down some guitar tracks.


Listening to the results on the Mac.

Doing vocals looks like this.


Keeping track of the work done and the work ahead.


Going to the small local market for delicious things to eat.


The Ixelles neighbourhood looks kinda cozy.


An easy place to spend money: Peinture Fraiche at 10 rue du Tabellion.

There was also time for a visit to the comic book museum.


The museum is in the organic art nouveau style.


I was possible to find a nice record shop even though it took a while. The Collector
has been there for 29 years. Go to Rue de la Bourse (Beurssstraat) 26. Lots of vinyl!


Packing down all the tech stuff before going back to Denmark.
