Digital recording and distribution have blurred the long-standing line between “professional” and “amateur” musicians, but there’s still something special about a song recorded in a fully outfitted studio with a trained engineer behind the desk — the sound of an actual space dedicated to capturing music, and the feeling of the interaction between talented artists practicing their craft in a creative environment.

Thanks to our friends at Red Pill Music, we’ve been granted a window into that interaction via the Red Pill Sessions, a series dedicated to taking our readers behind the scenes while artists create in the studio. We’re kicking things off next week with Miles Nielsen and the Rusted Hearts, who have agreed — along with Red Pill partners Jacob Detering and Lauren Markow — to give us access to the process with audio, video, photos, and maybe even a few surprises.

Things will get started in earnest next week. In the meantime, enjoy this embed of the band’s latest studio set, Miles Nielsen Presents the Rusted Hearts, and read more about the band at their official site:
