Gadgets We Like: Daytrotter App Lets You Listen To Sessions Recorded On The Road

Emerging bands driving from show to show take a 2 hour break to record a Daytrotter Session at The Horseshack studios in Rock Island, IL.  During these sessions, they play on borrowed instruments grab some grub, and then hit the road again.  The product of their sessions?  Four songs that entirely represent the passion of the artists in that exact moment.

At the best price, free, you can get the whole Daytrotter session library as an app for the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and now the Android.  Along with the tracks recorded in the session are the feature articles, original artwork, and set list. These sessions recorded on the road can now hit the road with you.

Many TuneCore Artists have recorded Daytrotter sessions including: Thieving Irons, Fang Island, Harry and the Potters, Eef Barzelay, MGMT, April Smith And The Great Picture Show, Best Coast, Brett Dennen, David Berkeley, and Matisyahu.

    I just watched a video from recording session on Daytrotter site, and I’ve got to tell you, it took me for a very nice sentimental trip back in time to the 80s when I was recording in analog studios. “Man, cook that tape, will you? I need more juice here!”. Sounds familiar? Gosh, I surely miss those days. Every time I’m recording digital now, I feel like I’m wearing white lab coat. I’ve heard that Lenny Kravitz for one still records his albums using old analog recording gear
