recorded live-in-studio, vocals & all, except for a few edits & one or two guitar overdubs. which is all the more amazing when you take into account that mostly just two people play on this collection of tracks. the one place where a third person sets foot in the mix is the intro to SILENCE HOWLING which features a bit of quantum percussion from Sheridan Riley (Avi Buffalo, Peg).

otherwise, you're just hearing 5-Track (guitarbass, sing) and Patrick Lenon (drums) being what they are and doing what they do.

The Walking Faces' second album, "The Invisible Planet", is here:


released September 13, 2013

5-Track ... guitars, guitarbass, singing
Patrick Lenon ... drums, piano

Sheridan Riley ... quantum tumbleweeds, virtual motorcycle

basic tracks recorded by Mark Wheaton at Catasonic, Echo Park, CA
overdubs/mixed/mastered by 5-Track at Cat Valley, Echo Park, CA

songwriting credits:
JOSÉ PEDRO (Patrick Lenon)
SILENCE HOWLING (5-Track, Marc Cantlin II)
HOMEBODY (5-Track)
SAINT JULIAN (Alex Maslansky)
CAT & BIRD (5-Track, Patrick Lenon)
