Neue Nationalgalerie

I took my daughter to the newly-reopened Neue Nationalgalerie today. It was so exciting to be in that space, surrounded by the gallery’s incredible collection of sculptures and paintings. I couldn’t stop smiling. Check it out- and make sure to bring the kids!

Coffee with Mark

It was wonderful to grab coffee with radio giant Mark Sovel today at HEIDE’s Deli. The Blood Arm used to religiously listen to the station he ran, Indie 103.1, and his show with Steve Jones of Sex Pistols, Jonesy’s Jukebox, back when we lived in L.A. He interviewed us, played our music and acted as a conduit for the scene out there. He’s an absolute legend and I’m honored to be wearing matching t-shirts in this photo. Thank you, Mark.

Recording Infinite Nights

In 2012, Nicky Walsh came into the studio to capture the recording of The Blood Arm‘s fourth album Infinite Nights.

We were tense—the photos show that. It’s awkward to have a stranger come into the studio, but the results were fantastic, and we’re delighted to have these images now.

I hope you enjoy this little peek into our recording process.

Infinite Nights

Happy Birthday to The Blood Arm‘s fourth album “Infinite Nights”- released on this day in 2013! 

Written largely on laptops when we first moved to Berlin, the record took an introspective and experimental turn. There’s something for everybody here- hard rockers, acoustic ballads, bedroom pop and even a surf workout. The album was made in the early days of crowdfunding, and since it was paid for by fans, we still hold it close to our hearts. 

Released via R.I.P. Ben Lee Records , “Infinite Nights” spawned two singles, the guitar-driven “Midnight Moan” and the gonzo-country-romp “Matters of the Heart”. Follow the link in our bio to see the videos for both, directed by Ivan Flugelman . CD copies of this album are still available via The Blood Arm’s website
