Seattle Kindie Rockers RECESS MONKEY are going deep with their new album. DEEP SEA DIVER (June 18, Monkey Mama) is being called their “Blue Album,” an ocean-themed effort “set in a submarine that plumbs the musical depths of the sea before becoming shipwrecked on the beach of a distant lost island.” I’ve listened to a few tracks already, and I’m diggin’ it. 

Vocalist/Guitarist Drew Holloway had the following to say about the new record:

“With all the variety, we worked hard to sequence the songs so that there’s a flow. It’s an art that many people don’t notice, and that’s the goal. We want it to feel like you’re seeing a show that keeps moving or listening to a soundtrack that has an arc. The foley of the submarine and ocean sounds helps glue it all together, really giving the record a sense of time and place.”Drew Holloway

recesscoverGuest artists on DEEP SEA DIVER include Johnny Bregar (keyboard and mandolin), Tom Baisden (trumpet player of THE NOT-ITS!), and unsurprisingly… Dean Jones, (the 1990s Puff Daddy of the Kindie Scene) of DOG ON FLEAS on trombone. Dean plays on everyone‘s album (and has his own coming out), and if I ever make good on my threat of recording a “Kindie Metal Album,” I fully expect Mr. Jones to magically appear in the studio at some point. DEEP SEA DIVER was recorded on an island — Bainbridge Island, Washington — in Johnny Bregar’s Brickyard Studios.
