I caught up with producer/engineer Will Yip (Balance and Composure, Man Overboard, Anthony Green, Title Fight ) after the inaugural Studio 4 Session last week. We talked about how he balances work with his personal life and how the Studio 4 sound stacks up against Sound City. Off The Board: A Studio 4 Family Compilation is set to release October 8th.
Right now, I have the chance to make the coolest music with my best friends, and I'm lucky. Why would I not do that every second I can?

Balance and Composure debuted at No. 51 on the Billboard 200 chart this week, No. 2 on the vinyl charts (losing the No. 1 spot to Arctic Monkeys), No. 16 on the rock chart and No. 19 on the indie chart. For reference, Hits Daily Double has No. 50 listed as 6,884 sales this week – those numbers aren't always accurate, but there's a ballpark for you. Congrats to the band and No Sleep Records!
