Eksi Ekso is currently recording LP #3 in North Carolina and Brooklyn with Scott Solter (Spoon, Pattern Is Movement, John Vanderslice) behind the boards, marking the first time the band has worked with an outside producer.

Where the band’s latest release ‘Brown Shark Red Lion’ (2011, The Mylene Sheath) was a lush and fully orchestrated affair with multiple guests, the new material finds the Boston/Portland trio drawing back on the layering and embracing a more lean and direct approach – playing all the instruments themselves while allowing plenty of space in the process. About half way through tracking the band mentioned that “…it’s the most upbeat pop-ish type material we’ve ever written, and Solter has been a tremendous asset through the process – getting amazing sounds and allowing us to really hone in on a sound that brings in a dance-y element.” The forthcoming record should see a release sometime in mid-2012 on The Mylene Sheath.
