While we’re on the subject of those United States, last time we were there we recorded a studio session for Daytrotter.com – a great website run by an even greater group of people from Rock Island, Illinois. The About session was finally put online this week, along with an interview that can be found here. You can download the whole session right here, but be sure to check out the other great features on there!
Immediately after the New York show on March 19 Rutger will be kidnapped by Amsterdam-based hell-raising brats Voicst to do programming and production on their second album sm7b price, a musical frenzy led by Interpol producer Peter Katis in his Connecticut studio.

During the two months of recording with Peter Katis (Interpol, The National) in New York, Bridgeport and San Diego Rutger has been slaving over synth programming, horn arrangements and production.
