So, the session for Justin’s Million Powers track went well enough that he decided to record the debut album for his new band with us. The band was Marina Orchestra, and it was a new experience for us. Dense, complex, and percussive, Marina Orchestra had great songs underpinning dance-able, fun arrangements, punctuated by horns and wrapped in swirling guitars, and bathed in glorious boy/girl vocals. We went on to do some work on the band’s second album and their follow-up EP, and they’ve been great experiences. Justin’s a funny, brilliant, kind, and talented guy.
