Back in the spring of 2009, Borracho began work on what was planned to be their debut studio release, recording in an old, abandoned Art Deco mansion nestled in the woods of Arlington, Virginia. These early "Mansion Sessions" wrapped up that summer, but the band opted to not release these recordings. In the end, only two tracks from the mansion sessions were used as publicly available demos, and some of the material was re-recorded for what would become their juggernaut debut "Splitting Sky" released in 2011. The rest never saw the light of day...
...until now. Dusted off and polished up with a brand spanking new mix by Frank Marchand, who engineered and produced "Splitting Sky," and a limited edition 7" release from No Balls Records and Ghost Highway Recordings, these two tracks offer an historical glimpse into the early sound the band was crafting nearly four years ago. Enjoy a heavy ride in the way-back machine with Borracho at the controls.
