Direct-To-Vinyl Live Session #007: Alexis and the Samurai
NOLA's Alexis and the Samurai were in for our 7th Direct-To-Vinyl Office Session. They cut "Swamp Fire" (from their latest LP, Move Into View) along with a special A Cappella version of "Ten". And for their second song, we were privileged to hear a brand new NSFW tune called "Riddles". Wonderful songs, melodies, voices and arrangements from this ultra-talented duo.

For their session, we cut the following songs for a total of 10 records. Only one copy of each take exists.
"Swamp Fire / Ten" (6 takes)
"Riddles" (5 takes)
Our limited edition lathe cut record releases are made on a modified antique record cutting lathe from the 1950's. Each record is handmade, one at a time, in real time, by a real person.
