Another cool video from the Labtones studio! Here you see Steve Conte NYC at work for his cover EP, together with the International Truth band. This EP was just released as part of his funding campaign on pledgemusic.com. This video was made by Wilco’s brother Arjan Minderhoud. Enjoy!
Here is a cool teaser for the upcoming debut album from the Dutch band Bromley, which was recorded in the Labtones Studio by me and Wilco Minderhoud. Recording took only 23 hours and we are now working on the final mixing and mastering… it is going to sound great!!
A nicely written article called ” 24 Things You Should Know Before Starting A Vinyl Collection”. Finally an article about this format – which I like very much by the way – without all the non-scientific nonsense about digital audio.
I promised you earlier to explain how you can get hold of the amazing “International Cover EP”, which Steve Conte recorded at our studio together with his band The Crazy Truth International. Well, here’s how: the EP comes with his solo album, which is currently being mixed in LA by Niko Bolas (known for his work with Neil Young and Keith Richards). He recorded this album together with members from Foo Fighters, Patti Smith, Bruce Springsteen and other famous names.
He does this release all by himself, so without the help of a record company! And in order to finish this record he started a campaign on Pledgemusic.com. And who can better explain how this works than the man himself:
After 18 hours the campaign already reached its goal (unbelievable!). Right now it is even at 113% and counting. If you check out the options on his Pledgemusic page you will see that there are a couple that include the six-song Cover EP (starting from $43). So join and enjoy the songs!
That’s us: me, Steve and Wilco Minderhoud checking the mixes on headphones.
When I saw this commercial on television as a kid in the 90s, I obviously had no idea that years later I would be working on a record of the guy singing this song: Steve Conte. But Wilco Minderhoud, Steve and I finished mixing and mastering the “International Cover EP” he recorded together with the Crazy Truth International. And it sounds GREAT! Stay tuned for more info how to get hold of this amazing EP!
Very interesting stuff: hear an interview with Steve Albini on Nirvana’s ‘In Utero’ on the Kreative Kontrol podcast with Vhish Khanna. He talks about the recording sessions, mixing, expectations around the band, the 20th Anniversary edition that is about to be released and much more.
Thank you Myrra Rós for sharing this on Facebook. Low Roar is Ryan Karazija, a singer/songwriter from San Fransisco who now spends his days in Reykjavík. Below you can enjoy the closer of his self-titled album, but I highly recommend checking out his full album as well on Spotify.
