The last two songs have arrived

We took delivery of the final mixes for Comics and Stories today. We'd like to take this opportunity for a special shoutout to our producer, Jess Haugh, without whom none of this would have been possible - it being her suggestion to take VL back into the studio in the first place, back in 2015, when we were honestly beginning to wonder whether it was worth it. She ran recording sessions smoothly and intelligently, and gave both Daphne and Tricia valuable feedback on vocals - and in turn, had to put up with all kind of finicky comments about the mix. I encourage all indie acts in Auckland - particularly fem, queer and electro ones - to support her work.

Next step is mastering, and after that we can't wait for you all to hear this: and, for our pledgers, to get all the artwork and merchandise that came with it. We hope to play some gigs (in person and/or streaming) to celebrate final release, and you are all expected to come ON PAIN OF DEATH.
