I’ve spent the past 11 months of Now, Now’s break writing a new Tancred record and today I completed the writing process. It’s going to be entirely different from anything I have put out before, and nothing like the last record. Also 3 new members will be joining me. More info coming in the following months.
This is artistic rape!! These are early leaked demo's half of which wont even make it on my album the other half have changed and evolved. This is a form of terrorism. Wtf!!!! Why do people want to destroy artistic process??? Why steal? Why not give me the opportunity to finish and give you my very best?
We’re stoked to get up a brand new site for the band. We’ve been a little quiet in the show department over the last few months. I’ve been back in school learning how to do stuff like this nice little website. The good news to that is we’ve been jamming pretty steadily and have written a few new songs. We’ll have updates on what that’s turning into soon. We’ll also be playing a show in Calgary on November 26th. Be sure to check out all the tabs on the site and send us a message on the “contact” section if you have any comments, or want to ask us questions. We’ll try to answer as soon as we can. Also be sure to welcome Casey Lewis to the band. A few of...
Secondly, after some behind-the-scenes confusion and plan-changing, we are finally about to hit the studio at the start of next month to make the sixth record. Details about where, when and with who I’m still keeping close to my chest, but it’s great that it’s finally getting under way. To prepare for the session, and to honour the passing of (yet another) Great British Music Venue, the Sleeping Souls and I will be playing two intimate shows at the Hereford Jailhouse on 27th & 28th November. The first night is sold out already, so get your tickets quick!
The xx are in the process of recording their new album. They posted a message to their email list.
This year has been a creative one for us so far, we have been hard at work writing and recording new music in a few different places around the world. In the spring we spent a few weeks in the incredible and unique town of Marfa in Texas. Then, in Summer we spent some time just outside of Reykavik in Iceland. This Autumn we have been back in London, writing and having some time at home but this week we are heading out to Los Angeles to continue the writing and recording process.
Although all very different, each of these places have been inspirational environments to create music in,...
Speaking with The Fader, electronic producer Jamie xx has revealed that his debut solo record is just about finished. He also says that the third full length album from his main band, The xx, is "coming."
In a panel at New York's Advertising Week on Monday (Sept. 29), Stefani's manager Irving Azoff revealed that the 44-year-old singer is currently in Miami, recording new tracks with frequent collaborator (and Voice co-star) Pharrell Williams. Next week, Azoff added, Stefani will determine which track will be the lead single, which she plans to perform on The Voice later in the season.
We did start working on new material, a new recording, but even with that, it's not like it's going to be finished next month. It'll take us several months to get it all together. I'd like to think that around this time next year, we could have a new record out. We demoed a lot of stuff and recorded some stuff. Karl [Alvarez] and I have my studio, and we have my Pro Tools little small thing at my house, and Milo [Aukerman] has a Pro Tools rig in his basement, and Stephen [Egerton] has his studio where he lives, so we pass files around," Stevenson says.
David Weiss over at SonicScoop writes about the decision to allow no artificial reverb on La Dispute's Wildlife.
Like many feats of engineering, the “no reverb” rule came not by design but as a matter of natural course, starting at the initial sessions in Chicago. “We had miked the drums in the live room, and the room mics that were in there were set up for talkback,” Pedulla recalls. “Then the guitarist was in there to be next to his amp, and we started realizing, ‘This sounds cool.’ The parts needed this ambience, and sounded really good with that sound that you don’t get from close mics.
