So, we've been busy at the studio lately. So much so, I've neglected to update the site's samples
. We've got a few new ones up, and so I thought I'd let everyone know a bit about em'.
ScramJet : Tread Softly - ScramJet is a band out of Salt Lake City, dead-set on bringing their musical vision to life. They know what they want and are good at getting great results. We've been working with them for months now, getting material ready for their debut EP release. Expect good things from these guys.
Alex Bateman - When deciding among the songs from our catalog to post, we knew we needed to get Alex on the samples page, but he had two songs so different from each other, we couldn't choose on just one. After much deliberation, we decided to put em' both up. Recording with Alex was a treat. He's always looking for ways to organically capture his vision, no matter what type of music he's creating. We were anxious to help. For instance, getting that opening reverse cymbal hit on 'Brey Brey' was accomplished by putting a ribbon mic about 6 inches from rim of the cymbal - resulting in a seriously wacky, washy, amazing sound. While 'Brey Brey' captures the funk, Louisa is heart-felt and full of sincerity. The majority of Louisa was recorded in one take, singing and playing guitar at the same time. A few of the effects were recorded shortly thereafter, keeping everything acoustic. Come back anytime, Alex!
Brace For Infinity came in with a very limited budget, and I was skeptical about us being able to get a full recording out within the constraints, but due to its simplicity, and their great musicianship, we were able to get "I Resent You" completely done in 2 hours. We had some extra time, even, and so our studio drummer (me) was able to break out some rhythm. I got my new RockBox cajon and added some acoustic percussion to the track, and they all loved it! I'm looking forward to working with Brace For Infinity on some of their next songs and projects.
We've been working with Kiss Me Kill Me for quite a while, and were recently able to get all their songs released for mastering. I can't wait to get my hands on the results when they're done. 'Night Walker' was posted after a quick mastering job we did in our studio here, because I couldn't let great music like that go out the door without getting on the samples page.
Thanks for coming in, guys! Looking forward to working with all of you again!
