This January, redvinegar went to beautiful Duluth, MN and into the historic Sacred Heart Studio (Low, Haley Bonar, Brad Roberts of Crash Test Dummies) tucked into a beautiful former cathedral built in 1896.
We spent over 10 full days noon to midnight and hundreds of man-hours in the studio recording, mixing, and mastering on everything from vintage 2-inch analog tape and tube microhphones to the newest in digital production systems. We survived 30-below temperatures, snowstorms, and driving back to Chicago in the middle of the night to make this record, which includes a 20-page full color booklet, photos by Mark "Ake" Larson, Phil Kuhl, and Peter Peterson, and incredible paintings by artist (and musician) Tim Lowly.
'i don't know where here is' spans 10 songs written by Peter Peterson discussing loneliness, life in the big city, lost loves, lost friends, true love, betrayal, and the other usual suspects. It features a 20-page, full color booklet with lyrics and over 35 photos and paintings showing the recording process and painting a picture of the Anywhere, USA kind of urban and rural world this music comes from. We are proud of this album -- and we hope that you like it!
