Summer 2013 - Spent June and July in the weeds, and I don't mean camping, though there was a little bit of that too. I buried myself in denoising, declicking, de-wowing, de-fluttering, and otherwise working to bring out the very best in an astounding collection of live recordings of folk, bluegrass and singer/songwriter artists for the 3-CD box set Live At Caffè Lena: Music From America's Legendary Coffeehouse, 1967-2013, coming out on Tompkins Square records this September. Hear a sample on Tompkins Square's soundcloud. I am so proud of this work and excited for its release! I also mastered the debut EP of the utterly charming and talented Moe and Tom and a compilation of Boston bands covering early Lilys recordings, curated by Jay Breitling of clickyclicky music blog. And, after many months (years?) in the works, the Afro-Colombian electronic duo Palenke Soultribe's Mar has finally been released. Check out their videos.
Much more good music coming down the pike. Dare I take a vacation this month?
