In Studio

So I built up a little collection of hanging out in studio and taking pictures so I decided to release them onto the world. 
This is from Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lappelles and their time in Terrarium Studios in NE Minneapolis. I was fortunate enough to catch them in studio for an article in the Minnesota Daily on lady singers. This studio was beautiful.

While working with Take Cover I hung out and took some pictures of them recording. I also took a nap and played Xbox with Odin which was probably the best part.

I hope to be able to more of this sort of thing in the future, but this will have to do for now. I hope you also notice the convenience of the new "read more..." layout. You're Welcome!
