Airplane Mode: The Podcast
When we decided to make a record, we did so knowing full well that we'd be doing things in an unconventional way. We don't have a full gigging band yet. There's no brand-name producer. There's no record label. We're recording most of this with our friends or in our apartments, sharing files over Dropbox.
But maybe that's the new normal. In the age of Twitter and YouTube and GarageBand, maybe this is just how independent musicians do things.
We've always loved Behind the Music and iTunes Originals, and hearing our favorite artists tell stories on stage. Something about a view into the process makes the music feel like a more intimate experience. It seemed that, if we were going to try starting a band and making a record without a road map, perhaps we had an opportunity to give others a look into what we're doing.
So this. We've enlisted the help of the brilliant Mark Bramhill and our good friends at Hover, and started documenting the band via podcast. Every week, you'll get to hear the story of Airplane Mode from the band directly.
We'll do our best to keep things interesting.
