"Masters From Their Day"

Can a classic recording be produced in just one day?? Some incredibly talented folks have already shown us: Patsy Cline, Owen Bradley, Otis Redding, Tom Dowd, Elvis Presley, Sam Phillips, The Beatles, George Martin, James Brown. A lot of timeless records were produced in a single recording session - songs that we still sing at the top of our lungs.

Masters From Their Day is an on-going series of short documentaries focusing on artists making records. Each episode chronicles the efforts of a band and a record-producer as they attempt to record a new single in one day. The viewer experiences the real-time creative contemplations that go into the records being made by today's luminaries.

In this episode, Cymbals Eat Guitars bring their a brand new song into the studio to finish ripening. They had just wrote the song two weeks earlier, and only rehearsed it a few times. Many changes were made to it during their day at Dreamland.

Legendary alt-rock producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dino Jr, Kurt Vile) sits in the producers chair once again. Agnello had just produced the most recent Cymbals Eat Guitars album, 'Lenses Alien', so their on-screen chemistry is palpable.
