In The Whale’s manager, Dan Rutherford, talked to yours truly about an idea the band had to cover a classic 80′s song. Being no stranger to that era’s material, I was intrigued. What transpired, I think you’ll agree, is a rendition of Add It Up that the Femmes would dig.

Our very own, Tira Neal, just returned from the Audio Engineering Society’s (AES) convention in New York City. Among the AES goodies were hanging out at Electric Lady Studios, Avatar Studios and Flux Studios. Hearing great speakers like Young Guru, Bruce Swedien, Massenburg and Joe Ferla was icing on the cake.
Legendary darbouka player, Rony Barrak, graced the studio as the producer on a pair of Lebanese Pop music projects. We were delighted to work with renowned bow maker and featured bandoneon player, Evan Orman. What an honor!
UI Sound Studio’s stalwart fall guy and necessary comic relief, intern Max Nordby, has been promoted to a studio engineer. After withstanding a number of impetuous and largely undeserved firings by staff, artists, and session spectators, the well-trained and thick-skinned Mr. Nordby can now add to his resume engineering work with great bands like The Yawpers, James & The Devil and West Water Outlaws.
For in due season we shall reap, if we do not give up [Galatians 6:9]. Ironic that this virtue led us to the sought after EV 666. Yes, that’s the number of the beast. This coveted mic will be put to good work at UI Sound Studios. It’s dark and dynamic tone will blend expertly with the phat, vintage sound for which we are known. Also featured here, is the Beyer M500- a desert island microphone for yours truly (I’ll have to bury a chest of them in the sand). Note to self: stop using the M500 on snare drum. Oh, the sacrifices mics must make.
