2010 marks the 5th Anniversary of Observatory's first (and currently, only) full length release. To celebrate, we are releasing a FREE download with a bit of a re-organization of the track listing. Download it now!!
Not much to report. The Studio is busy, despite many technical glitches. 2 weeks ago the main data drive blew. (The one with ALL the recordings on it). Through luck and minor technical wizardry, I was able to save everything. Fast forward a week after that, during a mastering session with Hey! Death?, Cam and myself watched helplessly as the other drive followed suit. That one - could not be saved.
Luckily, no recordings were lost. Just time. Lots of time was lost. We were able to borrow Kyle's rig from ITA Studio 2, which saved the Gay's 3 day recording session. Yay!
Recent studio visitors include Gay, Hey! Death?, Observatory, The Exotic Pets, and The BluIgloos. So much recording - still with nothing being close to a release. I know it's only rock and roll - but I like it.

Almost all moved into the new space. Effortless Records has relocated again, for a 4th, and hopefully for a long while - final time. New studio space is pretty decent - no control room, but a good amount of room. Look here soon for new news, and the unveiling of the new studio name.
Winding down the days at the hallowed "House of Bleen / House of Miraculous Recovery". Effortless Records promises a few release from "the House" though they may not be out before the move. Observatory's next release is right around the corner, as well as a surprise release involving them. Check back soon!
We've had a few noise issues with some neighbors that limits when we can and can't play and record music, so I've bought a house that should remedy most of that. The new studio space will be bigger and better than ever.
Hoping to have the new studio up and running for June 2010.
Robert Pollard and the Tobias brothers have released "A Riot of Gold Teeth" which is a greatest hits of Circus Devils music from 2001 to 2010. So far the reviews are good! Check the Circus Devil's web site for more information.
