This is the second track from #TheiPhoneRecord, also known as "River Kid," currently still in progress.
This track was recorded using only the built-in microphone of the iPhone 4. The exception to this is the organ, which was recorded a year before the rest of the track; before #TheiPhoneRecord was born; before we realized the power we held in our hands. The rest of the track - that's 11 live instruments, including the powerful drums - was recorded on a smart phone. For real.
