Radiator Greys – Denying The Other

I’m trying to remember the first time I met Josh Levi, but I can’t quite place it. I know it was a noise show and I know it was at Dr Clock’s Nowhere Bar in DC and I know we got on almost immediately. Josh is one of the head’s of Select DC, a group that […]

Exiles – Search Light EP

Exiles contacted me right at the end of the year so I was able to get one last mastering job in 2015 to round a great year of work out. Exiles is from New York and have been thrown around in the shoegaze genre but I think this new EP has a lot more post-punk […]

Ars Phoenix – Lifetime Supply Single

I worked with Ars Phoenix on an EP this past summer (2015) that I think sounds fantastic for those into heavy cold darkwave. I don’t think the EP is out yet but it looks like a single emerged from it so I thought I would share that. Lifetime Supply (Single w/ B-Side) by Ars Phoenix

Track Work – David Bowie – Heroes

Like the rest of the world I was gutted by the news of David Bowie this week, but I also was thrilled by the non-stop out-pouring of love and memories and personal stories I’ve seen. This week for Track Work I chose Heroes because it’s one of my fave songs Bowie did. One of the […]

Track Work – Depeche Mode – World In My Eyes

I decided to start up a weekly post called Track Work where I pick a song that I enjoy listening to for mixing or mastering. I’ve always been a huge Depeche Mode fan and Violator is a record that I studied closely when my wife and I were doing Screen Vinyl Image. I love the […]

Wildhoney – Your Face Sideways

I’ve been privileged to work with Wildhoney again, one thing I enjoy about working with artists on multiple projects is that you kind of get to know what to expect from each other. Discussing music in critical terms is as subjective and nuanced as discussing music in general so when you get to work with […]

Static Daydream LP

I’m very excited to announce the debut LP by Static Daydream is coming out on August 28 on Saint Marie Records and Moon Sounds Records. I worked on their EP both mixing and mastering and some of the tracks continue over to this LP where I also took on mastering duties with Paul. Below is […]

Kawai R100 – Free Samples Through Stomp Boxes

A couple of months back I posted a bunch of free samples of my Roland TR-707 run through a handful of stomp boxes. I pulled out my old Kawai R100 drum machine and did the same with a whole new set of distortion pedals. There’s also the original factory drum sounds too. The Kawai was […]

The White Cascade – Endless

A couple of years back, Screen Vinyl Image did a tour with Bloody Knives (see our split cassette that came out earlier this year), and our first stop was down in Raleigh NC with The White Cascade. I knew Matt from a shoegaze forum we both were on and one thing I dug about Matt […]

Expert Alterations – EP

I recently got to work on an excellent new EP by Baltimore’s Expert Alterations. I know Alan from Wildhoney whom I’ve worked with plenty of times (and rave about all the time) so I knew I was in for more great music. This self-titled EP is pretty easy to peg in the influences of The […]

Ride Tribute Compilation

The Blog That Celebrates Itself put together a compilation of bands covering Ride songs. My friends in Silo Halo asked me to collaborate with them on Drive Blind so I put together a bunch of drum loops for them to use. I also mastered the track for them too and the result is pretty cool. […]

Roland TR-707 Sampled Through Stomp Boxes – Free Samples

I put together a collection of free samples using my Roland TR-707 and a bunch of stomp boxes (all fuzz / distortion) I had in the studio. I also ran the machine through my RNC (Really Nice Compressor) too for some clean / super compressed beats. I put the samples up for free on GitHub […]

Evernote, an Essential Studio Tool

I use Evernote for a bunch of things including grocery lists, clipping articles for work that I may need for later, and even planned an entire month long trip to France (I’m also using Evernote to write this article). One of the other uses for it is when I’m working on music. For mixing and […]

Wildhoney – Sleep Through It

Very happy to announce the new Wildhoney LP “Sleep Through It” is now out and available via digital (vinyl is coming real soon and this is one to have on wax). It’s one hell of a record too. I have had the extreme pleasure of working with this band through their EP’s and when they […]

The Morelings

Over the holidays I got to work with a group out of Philadelphia called The Morelings whose style of music pretty much aligns well with my entire music background. I immediately heard a lot of Cocteau Twins-esq melodies, Cure-like guitar lines, but those would be easy RIYL comparisons. The Morelings really conjured up a lot of […]
