Last week was Insanely busy!! Peter Dundov – Rain Dundov’s album Escapements blew me away earlier this year. Every track is meticulously crafted with free flowing synth lines… Arps… and a mood that will lift you off the ground an take you on an interstellar journey to that place in the universe where cities are towering synthesizers, and streets are circuit boards. Rain is stunning… it has a slow build but when it finally reaches the top… its a lovely downpour.

Large Selection for series 04. Going to be a busy week with quite of bit of work trickling in before the lock date on one of my projects.

I cant wait to hear the final mixes. So series [...]
Headed down to Capitol Record Studios today with the rest of the Audio team here at Double Helix. We have Studio A (Strings) + B (Brass) booked all of this weekend to record the score for Front Mission Evolved (Square Enix). Legendary Composer Garry Schyman has put together an incredible score for the game, and I cant wait to hear it in its complete state. Stay Tuned!
Monsters of Folk – Slow Down Jo I was lucky enough to receive a promo copy of this debut album (Out Sept 22) a couple of weeks ago. I must say…. truly remarkable! A beautiful blend of not only folk as the album title suggests… but soul/blues/country and classic rock as well. One of the things I love about folk music is the lore behind it… the storytelling…the metaphors…the politics. From start to finish its an enjoyable experience. I would like to note that because its members are from various indie bands the album nearly took 5 years to complete. Band Members include: Jim [...]

I have been listening to the new Grizzley Bear album for a couple months now. Every time I pop it on I find something new and exciting to love about it. The musicianship.. the lyrics…engineering. I think Chris Taylor and the gang have really nailed it on their third LP. You thrown in Beatles influence, a touch of psychedelic, folk, and the spirit of Freddy Mercury and you’ve got your self one hell of a ride. If you have not yet checked this one out.. please do. Here is a little sample to get your taste buds going: Enjoy! Grizzley Bear – Dory [Audio clip: view full post to listen] Grizzley Bear – All We Ask [Audio [...]
