The Oompah Roundabout's 4th single is out and is currently available at cdbaby.com http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/TheOompahRoundabout with iTunes,Amizon,Google play and all other online stores to follow!
The song is called "Breed with you"! A fast paced, rocker reminiscent of The Kinks, The Easybeats, The Knack, with a bit of The Jam and The Beatles thrown in as well!
Recorded at their home studio ( Gap central recording studio ) and mixed / mastered at The Wave shop in the USA, This is the first recording since the studios upgrade a short time ago! and the boy's are pleased with the results!
The layout and wall treatments have brightened the drum sound not to mention making more room for microphone placement allowing the boy's to try different mic setups!
In this song Hormone used his Rickenbacker for the rythum tracks and his mint coloured Fender stratocaster for the lead and over dubbed strums! adding texture and power to the guitar sound.
The video shoot is planned for early september and should be up on their uTube channel the end of that month!

The Oompah Roundabouts first interview!
The Oompah Roundabout filmed their first interview last night ( Sat/ 19-07-2014 )
Filmed at Halfanacker film studio in Kwinana Western Australia the boy's home studio.
The interviewer was none other than their close friend Miss Squeak of google+ and uTube fame.
The boy's at the best of times don't take themselves too seriously and this interveiw was no different.
They have told me that once the interview has been edited it will be uploaded to their uTube channel.
They hope to do more of these types of video's in the future for their channel as well as their song video clips.
Their new single is currently at The Waveshop in The USA being mixed and mastered.

Gap central recording studio, Home of The Oompah Roundabout, Home recording
Some fresh pics taken today ( 13-07-2014 ) of our control room named after Windy Woble called The Wind room in honor of Windy's masterful talents at mixing and general use of the Wind rooms equipment!
On the otherside of the red entrance door is what we both call Halfanacker film studio!
This is where we ( The Oompah Roundabout ) shoot our video's, and it's named after me ( Hormone Howe ), An unfortunate incident consisting of myself and a indoor cricket ball back in the late 80's,
We have just completed all the tracking, and editing for our new single.
Windy has prepared the edited tracks and sent them to our mate mark at The Wave Shop in The USA for mixing and mastering.
When thats completed we then send it to cdbaby for release.
This will be our forth single and our first with the new live room setup and accoustic treatment, The drums are sounding a lot brighter and with having more room to move, enabled us to get the mic's where we wanted them rather than where they fitted. haha
We are planning a video series in the not to distant future on gap central that will include what mic's we
use and where we use them, everything we have in the studio and the studio its self.
So keep an eye out on our uTube channel for that and our official music videos as well.
Both windy and I ( Hormone ) would like to once again thank you for your support, Oompah!
