With the help of producer Ben Schigel (Machine Gun Kelly, SomeKindaWonderful), the local band Window Dogs recorded the songs on its new EP, Don’t Look Down
, at Schigel’s locally based Spider Studios in one day and then made changes over the course of a couple months.
Locally based Cauliflower Audio handled the mastering.
“[The tracks] evoke an urgency and vulnerability that fans of the folk/experimental five-piece have come to appreciate. In the songs on the EP, [singer-guitarist Sean] Breeden works through the process of getting changed by his circumstances and ultimately coming out the other side a changed person," reads a press release about the new EP. "[It's] a poignant message in a time at which virtually all of us have faced this situation.”
Local photographer Amber Patrick (@aterrormusicalphotography) shot the
band’s photos with neutral colors and muted backgrounds, creating some multi-shot exposures that mix mediums to achieve different textured images, while long exposure shots create "the illusion of evaporating" and the "subtle breakthrough of color evokes hope."
San Diego-based graphic designer Mike Giles created the album art
which explored themes of an "eroded emotional landscape."
Window Dogs celebrate the EP’s release with a concert on Saturday, April 30, at Mahalls 20 Lanes in Lakewood
. The show will feature special guests the
Ohio Weather Band and the Buffalo Ryders.
