Begins by THE ELECTRIC MAGPIE

 The new LP Begins from my buddies in THE ELECTRIC MAGPIE  just came out on Lolipop Records this month! They tracked this at their label’s studio in LA on a really clean Otari MX 5050 1/2” 8 track. An exquisite use of the 1/4” format! After transferring their master tape to Pro Tools [thanks Max Ramey for letting me use your machine], I tracked all of their vocals. Something really important at this stage was to make sure what we recorded on top of the tracks from the other studio didn’t sound too hi-fi & out of place. Luckily, I had a Peluso u47 at the time and with a BAE 1073 mic pre, it fit right in without sounding “too new.”

 Still, between myself, Peter & Hunter, shit just can’t get dirty enough! We made the call to Dylan DiMartini [Repeater Pan] & borrowed his Tascam 388 to mix the record on. A few stems from Pro Tools and a saturated master buss later we had a great combo of lo-fi, hi-fi, and just plain fi sounds. Really, that little desk glued things together in a magical way. We also rocked a Roland Space Echo for reverb & delay. Such a fun process!

 This record is really special. It’s everything I love about San Francisco psychedelic music, dirty ass garage rock & that special something the UK had in the 60’s. It feels fresh & nostalgic at the same time. Check out this track Airport Blues below for a little taste of the Pie.

Catch this link to a review from Bay Bridged as well! AND BUY THIS FUCKING ALBUM!

MR KIND - Tracking a new EP

Thought I’d blast out a transmission from the recording bunker before the hangar closes again. Wanted to share with you some photos from recording Mr. Kind up at Bob Weir’s Place over a few days last week. I’m so stoked on the sounds we got & the amount of work we accomplished. I don’t normally share rough mixes from tracking days, but these came out exceptional & I’m posting below!. Seriously, I can’t tell you how little time was spent crafting these roughs. It’s a testament to the quality of Bob’s studio. Hope you’ll enjoy this candy for your eyes & ears! Thanks a lot Rick Vargas for the usage of your pristine Rhodes Electric Piano. [Photos by Anna Larina of Skeleton Key Photography].
