UNDER THE TONGUE
Officially released on Valentines day of this year, Potions is a dark and mysterious ride but an essential one that delves into the psyche of both protagonists and essentially brings out the character and charm of this multifaceted album. It feels like a very personnel account and from the very beginning you are drawn into their world, a mix of Pan's Labyrinth meets Tom Waits in wonderland. Clanging, clanking drums and percussion layered with beautiful guitar and piano arrangements bind the productions together. Complete with the beckoning voices of both Mark and Julia throughout this full length make for an intriguing Journey from start to end.
The record was mixed at The Submarine and was quite a tumultuous little mission but a very rewarding one once all was finalized :)
Mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering (Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Jimi Hendrix). This was definitely an honor having Submarine mixes pass through the hands of this industry legend.
All in all a wonderful record and achievement!!! Check it out!!!
