Two more releases scheduled for August 2018 - this year seems to be a productive one...
1. Because all of their recent 3 albums completely sold out, my bros from "Ohrange" released a greatest hits album entitled "Perlen" last Friday. So if you missed their last albums "ohrange Album", "[er]leben", and "Wie Ein Mobile" (which I produced and played loads of instruments on and Air played some drums here and there, too), this compilation is for you!
2. In my last post I raved about the Hertrich Bros and their cool project "Attune", and last Friday August 3, 2018, they released their self-titled album "Attune" (which I mastered recently). It is now available digitally, but they do think about going vinyl for this one soon, so watch out if you like dark, moody, dreamy vibes with roots in downtempo, trip-hop, and nu-jazz while maintaining memorable harmonies and melodies.
Some of you might know the Hertrich Bros under the moniker of Young Fast Running Man - what some of you might not know is that they have even more brothers. Two of them have this neat ambient/triphop project called "Attune" and today they released a music video for "Nylon" as a teaser for their upcoming album (which I mastered recently...) - check it out!
On this particular day, many many years ago, was my brother's and my own release day (thanks to our parents!!) and in our honor (at least that's what I like to believe) AntiPeeWee released their 3rd album "Infected By Evil" (which Air did the layout for, and his brother, who shall not be named here, produced the whole damn thing...) today!! So happy release day!!
I also worked on that production... did "things" and stuff... Can't tell you more, 'cause it's top secret... Listen to the song and you'll hear it anyway...
Today T.G. Copperfield (whom some of you may know from 3 Dayz Whizkey) releases his 2nd solo album entitled "The Worried Man" (which I co-produced, and Air, as part of T.G.'s "Electric Band", drummed on) via Timezone Records.
Oct 27th: I play bass in a Thrash Metal band called GumoManiacs, and they're releasing their 4th and 5th studio album today, compiled under the name "By Endurance We Conquer - Demons & Damnation" (which I also produced, mixed and mastered) - via Ghost Town Noize.
Why 2 CDs? Well, "Damnation" was recorded in 2014 (when "Ouf Of Disorder" was released with a 2 year delay), but due to problems with the label at that time, wasn't ever released. These problems and other legal issues forced the band to further delay the release of their next album to 2017, and so both records were packed together on a double CD containing 20 tracks to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary.
Finally you can get this piece of Thrash Metal history on CD!
As our local Gillamoos in Abensberg went by, the world prepares for even more madness, destruction, and pain: Octoberfest!!! Not just here in Germany so called "beer fests" are hip again - also the US celebrate "beer madness" (sometimes even more than we do...).
Thus our friends Dave, Brian & Andy visited us last year for Gillamoos and recorded their new EP "Black and Blue & Blau und Weiß" here at Slash Zero Studio and released it this year for the "beer season" - be prepared for real Party Punk Polka by the Bolzen Beer Band from Nebraska.
To achieve this, and to maintain our creative freedom from other labels and companies, they started a crowdfunding campaign with lots of interesting videos.
Check 'em out - there are even more on their YouTube channel!
Happy Dynamic Range Day everyone!!!
Today we'll commiserate all the "loudness war" victims suffering from lifeless over-compression, reckless clipping, heavy limiting and other unwanted distortion effects, and honor those who were brave enough to let their recordings breathe the necessary air they're supposed to have to create a nice dynamic journey for all audiophiles and music lovers!
Let's hope that some day (real soon) all those victims will be re-released with a more "user-friendly" sound aesthetic.
Give peaks a chance!
Today, party people, and only today you can finally watch the whole Inga Lindström (67) movie called "Tanz Mit Mir" on ZDF 8pm, or stream it online here!
My good friend Christoph Zirngibl composed the score, and several other good musicians played their instruments on some of the tracks; here's the musicians' cast:
Stephan Ebn: drums / percussion
Hubi Hofmann: bass

Deryn Cullen: cello
