Sweetheart "art is dead is dead" EP 6 Songs, A little under 20 minutes. emo/screamo/indie Released Feb 7th I've been working as a recording engineer on punk, indie and rock albums since I was 15 years old. While many have seen wide release (in relative terms, I think the biggest seller I've worked on to date still sold less than 20,000 copies)-- on most of the material I served primarily as an engineer while the band itself was serving as defacto "producer." I thought of myself more as a audio documentarian, simply capturing the sound as it happened without trying to skew or bias what the band was doing. As a result, while i did enjoy helping to capture the music, I didn't take much excitement from the success or failure of the finished pieces. Last year, in addition to serving as the physical engineer, I had the privledge of collaborating on an album in which I was able to give my input on aesthetic and musical choices and really shape the finished EP -- offering my ideas to create an album that would best serve the band. Although we were working with a budget of under $600 for the entire EP session-- I think we were able to make an excellent debut record that sounds pretty good. And the reviews so far have been pretty favorable: I think you can check out an MP3 preview from the label's site: http://www.theperpetualmotionmachine...eetheart_6.mp3 Anyone interested in checking it out (if you're into louder indie/emo stuff with some screaming), I think it can be had for $6 or $7 postage paid from various mailorder places or the label itself: http://www.theperpetualmotionmachine.com/releases.html http://www.roboticempire.com/record.php?id=398 https://www.interpunk.com/item.cfm?Item=106854& Oh, and while the album features only 6 songs, the space on the disc is not wasted as it also features 6 live video clips from the abnd's fall tour, playable in a computer.
