Syba, the patriot. More below.
Official video for “Faces” from the “Other Places” album by Beloved Binge.
I can’t recall the exact year, but I probably wrote Faces in Seattle around 2004. We recorded the song in 2006 at Zero Return Studios in Atlanta’s Cabbage Town neighborhood. It was our first “professional” recording experience, and one we’ll not forget soon.
Rob and I crammed in about 14 songs in two days, including mixing and mastering, all analog. Our recording engineer smoked non-stop, and Rob exhibited nicotine withdrawal symptoms as we made our way home. The engineer, who was friendly and kind to us, was so authentically in love with analog that other employees had to remove all computers from his mixing/recording room prior to his arrival (to avoid upsetting him).
We took our analog reels and left that studio smiling like clowns. But not as scary.
Creating the “Faces” video
Due to other obligations, a video was never made for this song. Well, almost a decade later, I’m correcting that!
On our last road trip/tour I took a series of photos as we traveled across country touring with our band and visiting family. I called them “Syba Selfies” since they were of our dog Syba in all the places we visited.
It was a ton of fun to capture all of Syba’s varying expressions and map out our route in the little Westfalia Vanagon passenger mirror. Hope you like it too!
