The CH Facebook page recently posted a video from Nick, in which he enters a recording studio and sits down to presumably record. The studio appears to be United Recording Studios in Los Angeles, which was formerly Ocean Way Studios, one of the best studios in the world. Everyone from U2, Radiohead, Madonna to Beck, Herbie Hancock, Whitney Houston have recorded massive albums there.
I’m trying to suss out what this decision might imply. Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe that Neil has basically recorded in his own studio after Time on Earth, with the exception of Dizzy Heights which was partly recorded at Dave Fridmann’s studio in New York. What can they achieve at this big, expensive studio that they can’t at Roundhead? Is it a logistical thing? Or helping out Liam who has a young family and lives in LA?
In any case I think it’s cool Neil is breaking out of his recent mold a bit. And tbh I don’t really like the sound of Roundhead recordings, despite its vaunted console.
