Beginning production for Baltimore electronic artist Micah E. Wood today, with Fine, Fine starting this weekend! Both projects will be released in Spring '16.
"Released via Topshelf/Bridge 9 Records on 27th January, this looks to the be last release from Caravels as they have just announced they are to split; it’s a shame as I haven’t checked them out before and I like what I’ve heard from them here. The two tracks they put forward are beautiful dreamy post-hardcore; shouted vocals (reminiscent of mewithoutYou) over soaring, crystal clear guitars; the tracks have a sadness to them but at the same time the earnest feel is counteracted by the organic and dream-like structures and production, this is goosebump territory.
Octaves are as always punchy, intense and backed by some great technical riffage – compared to their Bridge 9 debut back last year these tracks feel more enthusiastic, embued with a renewed energy, and (cleaner production aside) reminding me more of their fantastic debut album Greener Pastures. The opening moments of Tom Petty Cash build exquisitely to a beautiful riff before the drums pound out their takeover and the vocals power in; great start. The track itself plays out with an almost prog-rock structure; little interludes and heavier sections woven together, along with changes of key and pace. Can’t get enough of it. AM Traffic Control is darker with soaring guitars, more discordant and with a fantastic sax (?) freaking out in one section, this track is layered with powerful riffs creating an intense wall of sound.
With quality tracks from both bands this is an EP I haven’t been able to stop listening to since the stream came my way, it’s also a solid starting point for Octaves if you haven’t previously checked them out. I’ll be picking up a copy come payday."
Hey now! It's been far too long. We've had a great couple of months finishing up a summer session video series, working on Makenzie Mizell's record, recording The Weather Machine with Salem Pops Orchestra, and shooting #thechildandthedead with Fort Ripper out in the wilderness. Super excited to drop all these projects on you!
Spent 5 days tracking Kitsune Rad, a wild, wacky, experimental 3 piece from Baltimore. After some broken sticks, all nighters, cars getting towed, and delicious Potbelly Sandwiches, we came out with a pretty killer record. Also had an opportunity to use a '78 Marshall that sounded incredible. Mixing to commence soon.
Declare your independence! Proclaim your freedom and party on!
