The Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy

The Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy

By discover sounds, 2017-04-20

Damage and Joy find The Jesus and Mary Chain back in the studio for the first time since 1998. Youth takes the production reins and works his characteristic magic with the Reid brother's signature sound, doling out the brushstroke feedback within washes of acoustic and electric guitars and programmed drums. It's a damaged sound that takes the band to a new level that finds them in a place longtime fans (like me) won't mind going just to see what's next.

Aimee Mann - Mental Illness

By discover sounds, 2017-04-20

Aimee Mann's new album, Mental Illness, steps back a little from her last album's more firm nod toward her pop roots, sitting down and leaning in for an introspective look regarding what we encounter without; without this and that. Mann tells things she seems almost sure of and a little frightened being so sure about. All the while her melodies sway with a pulse beating a pattern we hope will find comfort and solace once shared, once spoken. Fragile as it might be.

Get the album now on amazon or visit her website where you'll find apparel and other things of goodness and grace.

The London Sound Survey

The London Sound Survey

By discover sounds, 2017-04-09

The London Sound Survey is a huge, sprawling website with "...a growing collection of Creative Commons-licensed sound recordings of people, places and events in the capital. Historical references too are gathered to find out how London's sounds have changed." that description doesn't do any justice at all to the scope of this thing. For sound lovers it's truly breathtaking.

Tell me about Bare Bones studio.

Bare Bones is the name of my home recording studio and record label. The name is meant to reflect my general approach, engendered by both budgetary restraints and attitude. I like to use what I have at hand to make the best possible work I can.  The budgetary restraints can work in ones favor as one is forced to find solutions which are naturally innovative.

FAWM - February Album Writing Month

By discover sounds, 2017-01-18

Something in my head always goes off around this time of year. It tells me February is coming. For many people that probably means different things. Valentines Day, spring is getting closer, etc. For some of us recording junkies it means that FAWM is coming.

That's February Album Writing Month and the website at FAWM.org re-launches every year to house all the artists trying to writing and recording a full album during the shortest month of year.

The site has discussion boards and lots of discussion and even collaboration. All styles and persuasions. Just go and create. I'll be doing something. Let me know if you are too.
