Herman Dune proudly present ‘Strange Moosic’ The follow-up to ‘Next Year in Zion’ was recorded by Adam Selzer at his own recording facility, Type Foundry Studios (The Gossip, They Might Be Giants, Frank Black, The Decemberists) in Portland, OR.
Herman Dune had in the past always been touring up until recording day, and “Strange Moosic” was recorded after their first ever break from constant travels together. “Strange Moosic” is the first Herman Dune album on which the songs had not been played at shows before being recorded. When previous albums were the reflections the Herman Dune live show of the time, “Strange Moosic” was recorded as 20 different single tracks, and then went through a process of choices, selection and compilation.
They were arranged and practiced for recording, even if they were played and sung simultaneously, live in the studio.
Portland was the perfect town for Herman Dune to record Strange Moosic, as many of their musician friends live there and were able to participate in the recording process, such as Rachel Blumberg and Sean Flinn, who provided vocals.
