Little Black Flies is an album that 24-year-old Eddie 9V planned to feel like it is unfolding right in front of you – right down to the clink of bottles and loose studio banter.
“I’ve seen a trend in modern recording,” he says. “There’s no soul. I took inspiration from Albert Collins, Otis Rush, Mike Bloomfield. All those great records were done live with their buddies and no overdubs. I wanted the playing to be spot-on – but even if we made a mistake, we kept going.”
