Sad Planets is John Cobra Verde Petkovic’s (Cobra Verde, Sweet Apple, Death of Samantha) project with Patrick Carney (The Black Keys). This particular song also features J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr) on lead guitar. I was honored to do some engineering and play bass on this track. – Michael Seifert
I had a great time working on this Sad Planets record, the new project from John Petkovic (Cobra Verde, Death of Samantha, Sweet Apple) and Patrick Carney (The Black Keys). They’ve just released the first single “Not of this World.” I played bass on this track in addition to recording John’s vocals and doing some additional engineering and editing. Happy to see this released!
New Sweet Apple record out today! The band features J. Mascis (Dinosaur Jr.), John Cobra Verde Petkovic, Tim Parnin, and Dave Sweetapple. Check out the video for the first single, featuring Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens Of The Stone Age) and Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices).
I had the privilege of working on this record, recording some of it and also playing piano, synthesizer, bass, electric piano, percussion, and acoustic guitar. – Michael Seifert
