Eric Elbogen of Say Hi is the latest in a long list of Barsuk-signed musicians to take part in a Daytrotter recording session. In case you're not familiar, Daytrotter is an online project from the Horseshack studio in Rock Island, Illinois. Touring musicians stop by the studio to record a handful of super lo-fi, live songs on analog tape.
This sort of atmosphere seems to fit Say Hi perfectly. What's impressive is how close to these four recordings sound to the original version on Oohs & Aahs . Daytrotter's version of "Hallie and Henry" even duplicates the same echoing, far-away quality that made the record so distinct.
You can download all four songs for free by joining Daytrotter's mailing list.
