The second full length release from Duluth’s Fever Dream arrived September 27th, 2014 just in time for International Cassette Store Day! It was produced by Alan Sparhawk and Steve Garrington (Low, Retribution Gospel Choir) at 20 Below Studios.
A reunion of sorts, the last time these three gents were in a studio working together harkens back ten years to their rock group No Wait Wait. Proceeding that Steve and Marc worked for a spell in bluegrass/americana outfit Two Many Banjos with Dave Carroll (Trampled by Turtles). Marc got his leg stuck a bit too long in TMB but Steve freed himself and went on with Alan to Retribution Gospel Choir and Low. Fever Dream has brough them all back together once again.
Fresh off of producing Trampled By Turtles most recent full length ‘Wild Animals’ Sparhawk shows his confidence as both producer and engineer, recording and mixing this Fever Dream project himself. Steve Garrington worked with Marc throughout the year picking and choosing demos he had written and his co-producing credit cannot be understated. ‘Hey, What’s Up?’ represents a strong group effort and a leap forward from their debut ’83.
