Des Moines is blessed with amazing musicians. While we mainly see them performing on stage, those same musicians are also producers, mixers, and sound technicians for various bands in and out of the area. Pat Fleming (PCC) is one of these multifaceted musicians. Pat worked as the producer of Dolfish’s first LP, I’d Rather Disappoint Than Stay The Same. The best part? The entire album was produced in a friend’s living room in downtown Des Moines.
The album was recorded and mixed in just five days and received killer reviews from Paste magazine. The creation of this album features the work of many Iowa-based musicians that Max Sollisch had only met upon arriving in Des Moines to record and mix the album. Check Dolfish out on November 30 at the Mews.
