  2. Here is my new guitar rig, along with some process shots of the custom cab that Ashley Arnwine (Black Sheep amplifiers in Philly) built me. I already had the 2x10 (middle cab in top photo). I wanted a second cab built to match, w/ the blonde tolex and oxblood grillcloth. In addition to building the cab, Ashley retolexed my head to match the rest of the rig.

  4. Check out this preview track from the new DC band Citadel: Winter by Citadel. Featuring Chris Keller on vocals, Tina  on keys, Brendan on bass, Joshy on Guitar, Mikey T on drums. I did the recording and mixing on this. Really stoked on how it came out.  Full demo/EP coming soon.  

    Also, a track I recorded many months ago for Spoonboy for his split 7” w/ Martha has finally seen the light of day. You can check it out here:

  5. I’ve been working on doing some basic mastering work lately. Mostly on old recordings of my own, as an experiment to go back in time and listen to them with fresh ears, find out what I did wrong with the mixing.

    Here is a freshly “mastered” version of the Moon band recordings from a couple winters ago.

    And you can check out the old “unmastered” version along with a description of the project itself here: http://materiaobscura.tumblr.com/post/43713460978/listen-to-untitled-by-moon-family-band-hey-so-i

  6. Fell Types final recordings are now online Circumscribe E.P. by Fell Types

    We tracked these a few days before our last show, and I’ve been working on overdubs and mixing over the last couple of months. I’m really happy to finally have a representative recording of how our songs sounded live, even if there are a bunch of songs that never made it to tape. These were the songs we played at our last couple of shows, and I think is the best way to capture what we were doing as a bend at the end.

    I’m especially fond of track #3, “Cast Out”. It’s our longest song, and I think our most powerful in our live set.

  8. Decided to do a metal version of this quiet Mount Eerie song. Here is the original for comparison: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMmj8WZ725Y

    It’s a really simple folk song, just voice and acoustic guitar, but it’s still really oppressive and heavy sounding. So lent itself naturally to a metal rendition.

  9. Did this cover from a message board thread challenge to do a cover of your most played song in iTunes. Happened to be this song by Eric’s Trip. This was fun to do, so I’m going to try to do a cover a week, primarily from my most listened to songs.
