“Andy Pratt (Not That One)”
This is what was scribbled with a sharpie pen onto a CD of mixes handed to Andy on July 16th, 2016. After receiving an email from Pratt in January of the same year, legendary recording engineer Steve Albini quickly realized that he was not dealing with the Boston rock icon of the ‘70s, but a new & different Andy Pratt.
The winter of 2017 found Pratt preparing for the spring release of his debut record, Horizon Disrupted. After handing his band members a few solo demos that he recorded on a 4-track Tascam cassette recorder, he knew that he’d want the same tape/analog sound on the final product. Pratt naturally sought out Steve Albini at Electrical Audio Studios in Chicago and asked him to track and mix the album. Horizon Disrupted is a collection of eight haunting songs written over the past five years. The topics dig deep into love, sex, relationships and an overall sense of longing for what could lie ahead. The album features a vocals/guitar, bass, & drums trio, augmented by a string quartet on six of the eight selections. With the music, lyrics, arrangements, and artwork for the album all created by Pratt, there is a cohesive thread that ties these elements together, proving they are one and the same.
