Balter – (v.) to dance artlessly, without particular grace or skill but usually with enjoyment.
Wanting to be a part of the 1970s scene 40 years too late, the London based Anglo-American band Blind Atlas recorded their new EP, Balter, through a 1970s tapeless recorder, the synclavier.
Two of the tracks, My Only Sin and Goodbye were recorded and mixed by Steve Honest at Hackney Road Studios, through an old synclavier he had just purchased. The other two raunchier tracks, Balter and DADGAD, were recorded over at Soup Studios, all the tracks were recorded live with minimal overdubs to give a raw feel.
