New Touche Amore video for a song I recorded off of their upcoming split w/ Pianos become the teeth. Stoked!
A track off of Touche Amore’s split w/ The Casket Lottery. I recorded and mixed this along with several other tracks over the course of 3 days. One of the other songs is going to appear on their split w/ Pianos become the teeth. It’s currently streaming over at http://www.underthegunreview.net/2013/01/08/touche-amore-and-pianos-become-the-teeth-split-streaming-available-for-pre-order/. The other stuff has yet to be announced. You’ll just have to wait and see.
As for the recording of this stuff, It was a super straight forward session. Nick used his Mesa set up, Clayton tracked with his fender twin reverb, Bass is top secret. Vocals were recorded in a similar fashion to how I tracked them for their first LP. Lots of room sound. I used a cheap tape recorded mic for a bulk of the guitar tone, and my secret $40 mic for the drum room and vocals.
Here is a cool track off the new Dad Punchers record I worked on. Elliot was great to work with. he was even open to my crazy guitar lead idea for this song. Unfortunately, It’s in a crazy tuning and probably won’t ever be played live. Womp Womp
My goal for the year is to actually use this thing!
New releases :
Dad Punchers - S/T LP
Touche Amore - Split w/ the casket lottery, Split w/ Pianos become the teeth
Silver Snakes - WInter songs (split w/ Souvenirs)
Silver Snakes - Old Light EP
Globe And Beast - Grandfathers Axe (out in March)
Mossbreaker - Separation Anxiety 7”
The Blackhands - Friends EP
Really stoked on all of the above!
I’m currently in the studio with a cool Indie pop band called Tough Stuff, I’m also wrapping up mixes on the new Polygraph record, Being as an ocean acoustic EP, and Son Of man 7”.
I leave for tour with my band Silver Snakes in 2 weeks. Doing a full US with Broadway Calls. Upon my return, I’ll be in the studio with Vales from the UK for 2 weeks to work on their new full length. I’m super excited!
I guess that’s all for now.
I’m booking a few open dates in jan/feb/march. Email me if interested. Lxestrada@gmail.com
It’s a new year so i want to get things started right. I’ll regularly update this thing with what i’m working on. Here is a recap of the last few months :
New computer at the studio and tons of new plug-ins. Recordings have been sounding better than ever!
Joyce manor s/t got punknews record of the year! I recently traveled to san francisco with the band to co produce their new record due out this year on Asian Man records.
I’ve worked with a lot of cool bands in 2011. Some of my favorites include : Honest abe, polygraph, acxdc, DNF, Joyce Manor, Condition + many more.
My band Silver Snakes had a very busy year. Had our first record released and did a few tours. 2012 is looking to be even busier but i will still be doing as many records as possible while i’m home. As always, booking early is your best bet.
That being said, i have a new phone number. Please contact me via email for booking inquiries at Lxestrada@gmail .
I’m booking Jan/feb/march for now. I’m keeping my prices as low as possible for the first few months since i’d like to stay really busy before leaving in the spring.
Demo starting at $150
Ep starting at $300
Albums starting at $600
