Spring Update
It's been ages since I posted, so I'll give a synopsis of what's been going on since winter.

HUCK - Mixed their upcoming CD in March. It sounds fantastic, if I may say so. Once again, they come in with even better songs than the last time, and we have a great time recording them.

CROSS SWORDS - Started a major project with this Christian modern rock band a few months back. We're in the mixing stages of it now. This session has been a challenge to balance a lot of different musical influences into one cohesive sound, but the final result will be worth the effort!

THINNER - Still working on the project we started back in 2003. This last weekend we even tracked four more songs for it.

GEIN & THE GRAVEROBBERS - Wrapped up the follow-up CD for this fantastic evil surf band. I just got the email this morning that the CDs are back from the pressing plant!

THE HOWL - Did another batch of tunes with them and compiled it all onto one CD which recently came back from the pressing plant as well.

LARRY LAVALLEE - My cousin and I have been working for a while now on one of the most fun, and funny projects I've ever been a part of. Hard to describe, but basically it's a day in the life of a mock AM radio station, complete with commercials, radio plays, and other skits. I'll post a more detailed article about this shortly.

STANDARD DEVIATION - We recently started an album project for this local heavy rock band, featuring Amanda Larange on vocals. So far, it's coming out great. Some great sounds. We're in the vocal stage at the moment. I'll also post more about this shortly.

SANVEEN - We've started back to work with this very interesting duo. We had done a project back in 2003/2004 when they were a 3-piece with a drummer, which never got released. Since then, their drummer has parted and left Steve Gaffney (ex-Woodgrain Theory) and Mark Guerard (ex-Juggernaut/Oblique) to create their noise alone. It's really intense stuff. I'm absolutely loving the demos they've brought in. It's kinda creepy, kinda trancey. Very hard to describe, but fans of Radiohead, Tool and Bjork should be intrigued. Vocals, amplified acoustic guitars and some tasteful electronic treatments and loops. I can't wait for people to hear this one.

STUDIO NEWS - Things at the Central MA homebase, Tremolo Lounge have been getting exciting lately. Besides the constant gear upgrades, there are saws, sledgehammers and hammers in action. Charlie Blaum, owner of Tremolo Lounge, has been very hard at work on the grand "opening" of the studio. That is to say, that after years of the actual studio space taking up a smaller percentage of a huge barn, it's finally taking over the whole space. Anyone who has worked there can appreciate the huge space in the barn. There will be a time of trial and error as far as the setup is concerned, but I'm very excited about it. The concept will be a large open space with enough room to get instruments away from each other for isolation, but still being in one large open room. The vibe will be very comfortable and rustic, not your typical studio with booths and walls everywhere. It should feel like you're playing in a special place, not a hospital! I'll keep you posted about this as well.

OTHER STUFF... - Check out www.curtainsociety.com in the near future for info on the new Curtain Society CD, Every Corner of the Room.

The boys in the Curtain Society along with Scott from Huck recently played our second gig backing up the legendary NY poet/musician Jim Carroll. It was totally surreal. I was a huge fan when a friend let me borrow the Basketball Diaries when I was in High School. I must have listened to Catholic Boy every day for a month when I first bought it. To be able to share the stage with him (and he rarely performs music anymore) was a dream come true. We heard back from him that he was deeply moved by the experience and it really inspired him to do more music. We hope we can back him up again in the near future.

MR. HENRY NEWS - Well, it was a matter of time, but our little boy has gone and gotten himself famous. His proud mug is featured on the spine of the new book, Travelling With Your Pet, available from AAA on May 1.

If you've seen his Dogster page, you'll recognize the photo of him on the rocks on the coast of Acadia in Maine. They chose that photo for the spine of the book. It's ridiculous to walk into a AAA branch office and see the books on the shelf with a dozen little Henries on them.
Congratulations to him!
