Blitzen Trapper – Awesome @ FUV

We’ve made a lot of changes at WFUV since the last time Blitzen Trapper came through. New recording techniques, cameras, lighting and more. As usual, the band delivered a flawless performance which I was psyched to record. Here’s “Can’t Find It Cheap” recorded 10/26/11.

I decided to go with our Beyerdynamic M69 on lead vocal. It has a really tight pickup pattern and smooth mid-range response, which worked for his timbre and the characteristics of our room. For backups, I went with an AKG 535. While I’ll generally lean towards using that mic on female vocals, I knew these backups would all be in falsetto.

For comparison, here’s “Sadie” recorded over a year ago. Don’t mind the people in the hallway.
