It’s been worth the wait: the debut album release from West Water Outlaws. Ok you Rock N Roll crazies…If you go sign up for the mailing list on the band’s website, you can receive a link for a free download of the single, “Caught In The Headlights.” Enjoy!
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.
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.
