In the Recording Studio with Hamilton Leithauser

We were back in the studio with Hamilton Leithauser this week.

Dexter Lake Club Band’s lead singer and sax player Tim was laying down saxophone tracks for Hamilton’s upcoming solo release.  Hamilton is the front man and lead singer of The Walkmen.  Hamilton’s new solo record is due out this year.

Tim is also featured on Hamilton Leithauser’s Live vinyl recording of “Rough Going”.  Hamilton is currently touring his collaboration with Rostam of Vampire Weekend “I Had A Dream that You Were Mine”.   Hamilton’s performance at the Music Hall of Williamsburg was filmed as part of the recording.  Dexter Lake Club Band’s sax player Tim has a ripping solo at the end of the tune.  Check out the official video here.

Hamiton Leithauser and Rostam have a fantastic new record out, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine.  Songs from that record have been featured at the Super Bowl and in the commercial for the new iPhone 7 .

Hamilton is touring the new record now with a killer band including members of the White Rabbits and Spoon.  Click Here for video of Tim’s sax solo with Hamilton and Rostam from their sold out shows at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, NY.  This song is called Rough Going.

Our bass player, Jamie, recently shared the stage with Karen O. and Nick Zinner from the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah’s at NYC’s Joe’s Pub for a show with Jamie’s old friend and bandmate, Walter Martin (the Walkmen).  Walter has a great new record out called We’re All Young Together featuring Karen, Nick, and members of the National and Clap Your Hands and Say Yeah (Jamie plays the record too!).  Well worth a listen!
