PHISH - Sigma Oasis 2LP 2020


Sale price$31.99


Sigma Oasis came to be during the first week of November 2019, but it wasn't planned that way at all. We were headed up to The Barn to rehearse for our fall tour and ended up discussing this batch of relatively recent songs that we were particularly proud of and always wished we had recorded but hadn't had a chance to yet. Trey suggested calling up Vance Powell as he mixed and engineered Ghosts Of The Forest. Vance was very familiar with the space and the console so we set up the gear with no room dividers and no click tracks. Nothing. Just like a Phish show. Open space. We played for a couple of days. We just played a bunch of songs -- very quickly, a few takes, very organic, natural, life, honest. We had the best time. When we were done, our photographer Rene came up and asked us to come out on the porch and snap a photo. It took about two minutes. And that's the album cover -- a snapshot of our band at that point in time. Vance had some stuff on his schedule so he asked as a favor if we would mind if he didn't mix unl early March. Now four months might sound like a long me, but it gave all of us me to work on the tracks -- Page overdubbed a lot of keyboards at home. Trey went to a studio in New York and did vocals and percussion. We had me to pick which songs we wanted to work on. We let a few of them go, which was difficult, but that's ok. When we recorded the album, we didn't plan to release it this way. But today, because of the environment were all in, it just feels right. We don't know the next me that were all going to be able to be together. This is an opportunity to have a moment where the Phish community can share something despite being physically separated. The last line of the chorus of Sigma Oasis sums up this point -- There's no place to get. There's nothing to achieve. There's no place to be. Were here. Right here, right now is as good as it gets. You're already there. Its a content state of mind. You're just completely in the moment. You're already there
