Norman's The Separation finishing preparation of debut disc 

For the last year, members of Norman indie-rock band The Separation have been in and out of the studio, working on their first full-length album.

Vocalist David Hoffner said the band has kept a steady cast of bandmates for the last two years after several lineup changes, and decided it was time to record an album of songs the way they were meant to be.
 
"Our EP was pretty much a representation of what we sounded like live, not how the songs were really supposed to sound," he said.

RECORDING
The guys holed up in Trent Bell's Norman studio with Allan Vest of Starlight Mints, who is helping the band put the album together as well as adding string arrangements to some of the songs, Hoffner said, noting that every one of the three songs on The Separation's first EP will be re-recorded for the to-be-named full-length.

The band, which performs regularly in the metro " often with the Mints " is eager to play a live show, Hoffner said, but still will devote most of the winter months to finishing the record, which should be some time in the spring.

"We've just been kind of lazy with it," he said. "We lose and gain members so many times that we finally decided it was time to make ourselves record." "Joe Wertz
