Apartment Sessions

The video series “Apartment Sessions” on YouTube consists of a group of roommates clearing out their apartment to make room for a full orchestra, releasing a new video or two every month. This month they tackled “Wake Up” by Arcade Fire. Their neighbors also let them host part of the group in their apartment because of the size of the orchestra.

Wow. Mind blown. It’s a beautiful and awe-inspiring arrangement that really shows the meaning of community and neighborliness.

Thrilled to share our biggest session yet as we test the boundaries of apartment-recording; this time featuring our neighbors (Instant Treeline), who graciously and consistently offer their space and gear, and never once complain about the noise. Community starts with neighborhood, and it means so much to be recording this song with these folks, almost a decade after blasting this record in Evan’s car while driving through Atlanta, dreaming of having a giant band like Arcade Fire, but unable to imagine the beautiful, talented, diverse and committed group of people that have somehow made their way to and from our apartment. Thank you, truly, to everyone who makes this community possible.

Consider becoming a patron.
