Recorded in October 2014 at Inner Ear Studios, Arlington VA. "And Lucy" is a collection of songs dating back to 2012. It's an explorative effort showcasing new songwriting chops and sprawling outtros. The whole record was tracked live with talented cohorts Steve Kindl (drums), John Daise (bass), and Drew Kid (keys). A labor of love.
Where all the ideas go. I've been enjoying making synth rnb lately, so I'd suggest Glue as a starting point.
Dave Berry, affectionately titled "G Dave" due to perpetually wandering his freshman year dormitory playing classical guitar, has released a beautiful collection of nylon string pieces he's been writing in LA over the past couple years. I had the pleasure of applying a few sonic treatments to these tracks in preparation for mastering. For the record, it won't be called Vaya Con Audios, despite how cool of a title that would be.
The debut Carusoe record; a collection of songs written between 2006-09. I quit my job to record this album and finally released it sans publicity efforts in June 2011.
The standout track here is Do/Say. Tried to sound like Rhett Miller but ended up sounding more like the Beatles. Err, maybe just beatlesque. One of my good friends described this record as sounding a bit schizoid. I take strange pride in that comment. There is a common theme weaving all these songs together - the question is whether the listener will identify it or not.
Who's that cute wittle puppy?!?!
Sorry, got distracted there for a moment. This is the infamous "Sis" of the nascent east coast kringlewave duo, "Bro & Sis".
You know that mental trick where someone's like, "don't think about a pink elephant" but just by hearing it you can't help but think about a pink elephant? So frustrating, right? Along those same lines... don't watch this amazing YouTube music video of the Bro & Sis holiday classic, "Lump of Coal."
One of two stellar yogawave electronic tunes from Liam Merrit (Portland, ME).
He also does websites. Clearly not this one (too rich for my blood!) but yeah, check it out.
Alex and I recorded this EP together shortly after we both moved back to DC. He really pounded the pavement with it, and as a result I'd argue that this is the most popular MYM release to date. These days Alex is tampering with that smooth yacht rock fomula & producing a new group, Oh He Dead. He's got a website and a label and all that jazz.
Brett and I were implicitly trying too hard to sound like the Black Keys. Sorry about that. This was a fun foray into beatcrafting in Logic.
Jams recorded around Thanksgiving 2008. This harkens back to the guitar rock of yesteryear. There's some good energy here.
