29 Apr / Ian Cooke Band back in the studio!
23 Apr / April Summed Up
Stabbed in back is a punk band from Albuquerque that just did an EP in two fun filled days here at Black in Bluhm. That mix should be done soon. Thanks to those guys for setting up a show with The Gamits a couple weekends ago and taking us to all the Breaking Bad locations! Oh and the show was fun too.
I’ve been bragging up Sawmill Joe for a while now and as I sit here finishing up the master I’m wishing Black in Bluhm had the money to put out this album. There’s 14 songs but they are saving 4 of them as bonus tracks or something. If somebody besides the band doesn’t put this out I may have to sell my car for the cause.
Back to work.
06 Mar / New Ian Cooke Video Up
Black in Bluhm session #3 was Ian Cooke and band and Open Air has been kind enough to post it for us. We did most everything live ( believe it or not ) only going back to overdub a couple things. There’s so much going on in this song I recommend listening a few times and taking the ride. It’s full of beautiful melodies, cool chord progressions and complex rhythms. Thanks to everyone involved, Ryan McNurney at electraproductions.net for all the video work, Reverie Brewing Company for the fantastic beers, and Rackhouse Pub for yummy pizza. If you haven’t seen the first 2 sessions check them out on Ryan’s vimeo page. They feature Drag the River and Red City Radio.
Just mastered the new album from supergroup Implants featuring members from The Tank, Pulley, Strung Out, Voodoo Glow Skulls and Ten Foot Pole. The album is being released on Cyber Tracks which is the label that El Jefe ( NOFX ) and his wife started. If you like pop punk with some really good musicianship you will be stoked on this. As soon as I finish this post I’m starting on the mix for Denver’s own Allout Helter. They guys tracked it themselves and I haven’t heard a note yet. I have a feeling it’s gonna be rad cause I’ve seen them play live!
