Stream You Kiss By The Book‘s new album Family Tree.
You Kiss By The Book was started by Simon Dowling in the hills of California in 2003. Their first album, Neanderthals Going North, was released on a very limited CD run in California before Simon returned home to Dublin where he kept the band name intact and continued gigging. In 2009, Simon Dowling, Philip Clarke, Neassa Doherty and Cian O’Toole recorded the bands second album, Bear Leader, live over the course of a weekend.
Family Tree was recorded by You Kiss By The Book and Sean Lynch over the course of 2011. The studio was set up in Sean’s house which gave the band a lot of freedom to experiment with different sounds, instruments and arrangements. Although the core of the album was recorded and written by Simon Dowling, Philip Clarke and Andy Walsh, the album features some very special guest musicians such as Fergus Gleeson (James Vincent McMorrow, Feed The Bears), Saileog O’Halloran (Tieranniesaur, Feed The Bears) and David Crean (Villagers).
The album was mixed at Storm Studios by Francesco Gatti and Paul Lynch and mastered by Stephen Quinn at Analog Heart.
