Goodbye, Old Red Rug Studio

Dog Is Blue's Old Red Rug Studio/Jam spaceAfter a year of recording and writing at our “Old Red Rug Studio,” named for obvious reasons, we’re closing the doors. It’s been great to have a dedicated space to work on new material and build fun pedals—Laura also had her own art room—but we’ve got our eyes on a bigger prize that will require putting all our pennies together for a while.

The good news is, Dog Is Blue is a two-piece that lives together, so rehearsal/writing is as easy as turning off Game of Thrones (which is actually really hard to do) and turning on the amps.

If nothing else I just wanted to share the above photo so you know just how much stuff we’re going to try and fit into our apartment!

Songs that were recorded here include our Big Star cover, “Thirteen” :




Our Gordon Lightfoot cover, “High & Dry”:




Not to mention our combo Stan Rogers/Flaming Lips Christmas song, as well as yet-to-be-released tunes like a ukulele version of “Raise Your Dead” and several gazillion attempts at The Replacements’ “Can’t Hardly Wait.”

You can also check out all the amazing art Laura's been working on, including her biggest drawings yet, as well as Paul's occasional cartoon nonsense!
Dog Is Blue Fuzz Pedals

SOLD OUT! For a limited time you can get these one-off pedals (each one is painted differently by Paul) for the measly sum of $60, but that price is going up soon, so act now.

Buy them off the stage at our shows or get in touch with the builder himself to get one delivered!
