Sea Wolf Escapes To Omaha For Sophomore Release

Works With Bright Eyes' Mike Mogis

May 29, 2009 Bookmark and Share

Alex Brown Church crafts music fit for the open road so it's fitting that he got the name for his group from Jack London's Sea-Wolf. Like London has always surrounded himself by the claustrophopic bustle of the city but enjoys the air of the countryside on his cheek. After living in L.A. the Sea Wolf frontman has packed his bags and trekked to Canada's second largest city, Montreal. Citing its "multi-cultural aura" as inspiration, Church started working on the follow-up to his promising Dangerbird Records debut Leaves in the River. The forthcoming album is untitled at the moment but will be released sometime in September on Dangerbird. Now the roaming songwriter and his band are headed to Omaha, Neb. to steep themselves in recording sessions at A.R.C. recording studios Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes). Church selected Mogis for the fall release because he liked the way he recorded the vocals and drums on his albums with M. Ward and Rilo Kiley. Also, while Leaves was in large part a solo recording this new venture will incorporate some more of Sea Wolf's live sextet howl. Church adds in a press release, "it's going to be a bit fuller and dynamic than Leaves." For pictoral proof of the recording sessions head over to the band's tour blog, Life in a Van. Sea Wolf also have a Twitter account for curious fans wondering how many vocal tracks have been laid down yet.
