about

The concept of the Davvis album came from a joke about recording a *respectful* satire of the first two "Wavves" albums but under the name Davvis. All the members of the Emporium were big fans of Wavves and their music was played frequently at group gatherings. The name of the album and all the track titles are references that combine Wavves titles with references to a freshmen the band knew named Davis Deacon. Despite the titles being jokes and references the album itself is original and was taken seriously. It was recorded in one day after a brief rehearsal in Ryan's living room on a school day. Specifically the day of the PSATS. Ryan was smart enough to be able to nail the SAT without studying/psats and Kyle hated school so they skipped school specifically with the intention of recording the Davvis project. The majority of the album was improvised, and started out as Kyle and Ryan, but as recording went on, Spenser, who lived down the street from Ryan, came over and joined in, and towards the end even Gretchen and Jake had come over. The entire album was recorded on Ryan's laptop so the quality was abysmal, which was very frustrating as this album was one of the better albums musically to be released, and will have to be painstakingly remastered to even attempt to bring it back to the original quality. Who knows if it ever will be, but either way it is being uploaded to preserve what remains of it. Haley and Amanda had also planned to be there for the recording of the album, but they ended up going to school and taking the PSAT. They missed the only opportunity that has ever existed to hear the album at it's optimal quality, as the point of this was, as with all HH recordings, wasn't about optimal recording quality as much as it was about artistic expression and spending time with friends. This album features Ryan on vocals and oboe, Kyle on vocals, guitar, and keyboard, Spenser on vocals, Jake and Gretchen on backing vocals . The riff from the song Davves went on to be rerecorded as the main riff on Daria II off of the Chirples' "Sound of One Car Crashing".
