Elison Jackson - Spectral Evidence

After tracking their full length, the folks of Elison Jackson turned to us for mix and master. A delightful folk-rooted record, mixed by Matthew Thomas in a way that that only MT can. Several different aural spectra ranging from lo-fi and loud to wide open and in your face make this record a great way to listen to these croony, well written/orchestrated songs.

And we are just delighted to have them in the family.... maybe we can the next one from the beginning???????

Goodnight Blue Moon Record!!

After much deliberation (aka 7 beers) Goodnight Blue Moon has asked us to make their next full length.

Goodnight features former members of Pencilgrass (Erik Elligers [Gers] and Matt Goff [Beanhead])alongside Sean Elligers(Erik's brother), Nancy Matlack (Erik's wife), Amy Matlack (Nancy's Sister), Matt Crowley (Erik and Nancy's next-door neighbor) and Adam Kubota (random dude). GNBM has also be seen with such members as Rob Katz (Pencilgrass, Corpus Frisky, Slothlovechunk...etc.), John Panos (Pencilgrass, Kings, Mates of State, MT Bearington...etc.) and/or Jason Bates (Crooked Hook, Mountain Movers, Ponybird, MT Bearington, Shortpants Romance...etc.)

GNBM usually performs as a 7-piece which can involve Vocals, Guitar, Cello, Viola, Mandolin, Banjo, Trumpet, Bells, Drums, Upright Bass..... I'm sure I'm missing something....probably a kazoo or something. All these elements in supprt of songs mainly by Erik Elligers and Matthew Crowley, deliver a new and interesting way to hear Americana/Folk driven music. Southern rhythms and progressions combined with northern melodies supported by a padding string section provide for a very different listening experience indeed. It almost sounds like ......Connecticut.

With so many wonderful musicians and instruments involved, we can't possibly imagine screwing this up. I hope GNBM is as excited to work with us as we are with them. Listeners hopefully can look forward to our (surely elf driven) interpretation with an attempt to exaggerate their more atmospheric and energetic qualities.

Fake Babies "We Started Blues" Record Release

Record is out and the release show was a blast!!! The Babies sounded great and max capacity was hit before the show started (Thanks in part to DJ YouB). The beer was cheap and the music loud.

Special Thanks to Bespoke for hosting the event and Safety Meeting Records for throwing it.

Video Thanks to Jimi Patterson of The Fader
