New from Boo City is an amazing compilation of 5 tunes recorded at three different studios on the East coast. Sweeteness was mainly recorded and mixed here at the Rocktorium, and additionally, some horn tracks for some other tunes were recorded here to take advantage of the room’s great warm sound, captured by vintage ribbon mics. Boo City is a terrific band, and put on amazing live shows throughout the New England/ New York area. This wonderful project is available here.
After disbanding the very fun reggae/rock band (and former Rocktorium clients) The Rudeness, several of the members weren’t quite ready to give up the course that the band had set. After adding several new, very talented members, these tunes are the next wave of gems from gifted writer/singer Jonny Safford and the crew.
This album by MOGA was also a lot of fun to produce. Great songs and lots of cool instrumentation- the ingredients for an awesome record. Be sure to check them out live, and check out the rest of this terrific project.
A great new record ready for release, Dead End Dragstrip was recorded in a just a few days, and during a hurricane that knocked out power for weeks, but mercifully spared an approximate 1/4 mile circle around the Rocktorium. It is always a lot of fun to work with Teddy and the boys, and this record was no exception. Proud to be a pioneer in the new genre of “Hurricane Rock”. Check them out all over Florida, and periodically, in Rhode Island.
I’m not sure how I let this one slip by without posting it, but here is a single by Scotty Don’t, mixed here at the Rocktorium of Love this past fall. Always a fun band to work with. I’ll admit, my favorite part is the Sam the Sham style organ parts.
Enjoy, and find the band all over the country, and at Scottydont.com
Here are a couple of teaser tracks from the band MOGA, recorded over the later part of the summer, and due to be released this winter. A very fun and versatile band with terrific tunes. The album also features some help from the lovely ladies of Sugar Honey Iced Tea, as well as trumpet by Doug Woolverton (Roomful of Blues), sax by Pat Downes (Badfish), and trombone by Ray Gennari.
Enjoy, and look for the rest of this great album soon.
Just in time to celebrate their 10th anniversary, is a live recording of the Sublime tribute band, Badfish. Recorded over 2 days during a tour in Florida in March, the mix utilizes a lot from the mics particularly placed to capture the audience. The result puts the listener right in the crowd, and showcases the terrific energy that the band has live. Look for them all over the country, and check out their original project, Scotty Don’t, featured in another blog, as well.
