MY FIRST TIME: Face Value

Our first split was with emo/acoustic artist, Chris Swartz, in the winter of 2015. He came to us with the idea of doing an acoustic split and we thought it would be a killer idea, being something we hadn’t done at the time. Plus there’s something warm and inviting about an acoustic song, especially in the dead cold of winter in Maryland. Please follow and like us:

MY FIRST TIME: Mike & Matt Gevaza – Continental Recording Studio

The first full length album that we recorded at Continental was the self­titled release from Brooklyn­ based indie rockers John Severin and the Quiet 1s. At the time we were at our gritty Van Dam Street location in LIC. Continental Recording Studio started in Greenpoint, NY in 2008, where we worked endless days and nights honing our craft. We eventually expanded to a location on Van Dam Street in Queens and eventually to our current location is just off of Vernon Boulevard in Long Island City. During the early 2010’s we were experimenting heavily with…

MY FIRST TIME: Table Talk

We’ve only been playing under this guise for about a year and a half now but in that time we’ve done two tours, four weekend runs, recorded and released a split, and recently released our first EP Table Talk. We decided early on that we were going to make an honest attempt and try to progress this band in the direction we want it to go. Writing played a huge role in advancing our passions as we really hadn’t played together for a very long time before deciding to write the record. Ryan had…

MY FIRST TIME: Henry Chadwick

I went about recording this EP in a fairly solitary and semi unconventional fashion. All of the ideas for the songs on the EP were conceived on an acoustic guitar. Once I had a basic song outline or feel I’d started building a demo in the computer. I would blend organic and electronic sounds, using the programs Reason and Digital Performer in conjunction. I liked doing it this way because I could build layers and change arrangement ideas with relative ease. This way, I knew if an idea was working…

PLAYLIST: idobi’s Man Of The Hour

What I love about Pat’s playlist is that I can tell that all these artists have been influenced by all the bands he loved while growing up. The pop punk scene is an honest and energy-driven music that later spawned variants of that. Some include different elements to their music, but I just know we all come from the same place. – Sébastien Lefebvre Please follow and like us:

MY FIRST TIME: Summer Wars

Summer Wars as a band are still somewhat early on, so to play such renowned festivals like South By South West, and So What?! Fest so soon in our career was amazing.  We are from Raleigh, NC so we drove down to Austin, Texas and played a show case on a Saturday night for our booking agency Circle Talent Agency.  It was right downtown on 6th street at a place called The Dirty Dog, it was a 500 capacity venue and it was basically sold out, absolutely the biggest show…

PLAYLIST: Inspiring & Supportive

We decided to do a playlist about the bands who not only inspire us, but also support us through an online community. They are bands that share in our struggle and understand our sacrifice. We wanted to give them a chance to gain exposure for their music. They’ve all worked very hard and deserve to be heard, so we wanted to use this opportunity to showcase their amazing music. You can check out each song below or listen to the playlist in it’s entirety here.  Please follow and like us:

MY FIRST TIME: Jim Monaghan From Hoboken Hi-Fi Studios

Long before I made a living recording reggae music, I was a punk rocker.  I was also into traditional Jamaican Ska so it was only a matter of time that I would find reggae.  The first recording that I heard other than random Bob Marley and Sublime tunes was a tune called “Skinhead Revolt” by Joe the Boss.  I must note that this was recorded in 1970, long before Skinheads were racists.  They were young black and white British youths who were working class citizens that identified with the sounds…
