“Ashes to ashes, trust to dust, I don’t know what it means to be burned by something you love so much, I think I must be living the dream…” — Chris Mills

Chris Mills’ Wall To Wall Sessions reminds me of digging through my parents old record collection. The production, the instrumentation, the accompanying vocals…all of it soaked in ’70s era sentimentality, minus any of the pastiche. Mills’ “17-piece ‘Chicago indie rock big band’ rehearsed and recorded an album in two-and-a-half days, performing live while simultaneously mixing to a two-track tape machine, putting to use the studio’s orchestra pit and 30-foot ceilings. There were no overdubs, including the vocal tracks.”
