Opposite Sex


Fishrider Records from New Zealand presents the self-titled debut album by Opposite Sex. We are very happy how this album has come out. We first met and heard the band in February 2011 and recorded the album in April. It was not planned the band were simply invited to record some demos at Fishrider one weekend after they relocated from Gisborne to Dunedin and ended up recording 14 songs over two afternoons. Looking back at the recording session notes for these songs about a third of the songs were single takes, another third required two takes, the rest three takes. Bands are always recorded live in the same room at Fishrider. There's lots of spill between the microphones and it is all kept as natural and relaxed as possible, just like a practice. "La Rat" which opens the album was recorded first take, with live vocals too. A second vocal was added to double the vocal line but otherwise it is a live in the studio recording, perfect first time. Opposite Sex were a joy to work with. They just played their songs and we all knew straight away if the take was a "keeper" or not. It was obvious that there was a strong and diverse album in those songs and I wanted to release them as an album. Fishrider Records isn't "music industry": it's "music arts & crafts" so no point messing around with singles and EPs to establish Opposite Sex and develop their market or whatever the industry terminology is these days let's do this old-school, we thought, like the 1970s, when a band announced their arrival with a debut album. Heavily featured on BBC6 Music, Marc Riley loves this album.
