In this week's issue of Phoenix New Times, writer and musician Serene Dominic details the reality TV-style site TheRecordingArtist.com, which features bands recording tracks in realtime. Here, he dives into the studio, and journals the process for Up on the Sun.
I will admit to being somewhat skeptical about submitting myself to TheRecordingArtist.com's method of recording a satisfactory track in three hours, all the while being videotaped and streamed on the Internet. I didn't have any qualms about the studio (I'd recorded at Chaton once before) or OttoD'Agnolo's abilities as a producer/engineer (I know him and I share the same sort of pop sensibilities).

"Doesn't work well with others" is the phrase that most readily comes to mind.
