November 2019

As usual, things have been far too busy to update this blog regularly. Some new studio photos by CJ Foeckler have been added to the website, featuring the new Crookwood insert switcher/mastering console as well as some other new additions.

I am now starting to offer a few attended sessions per month to see how that works out. More info HERE.

The Replacements “Dead Man’s Pop” box set came out in September on Rhino Records and is receiving a lot of good press. This was mastered at Mystery Room Mastering over the summer and features a new and more natural and timeless sounding mix (by original producer Matt Wallace) of the band’s 1989 “Don’t Tell A Soul” album, a disc full of b-sides and outtakes, including an infamous evening session with Tom Waits, and an additional 2-disc live show from UW-Milwaukee in 1989. Here are some notable reviews and articles:

Pitchfork
Consequence of Sound

Recording Magazine did a nice write up on the technical side of making “Dead Man’s Pop” that you can access digitally¬†HERE. (photo below).

A new EP of remixes by Michael Franti & Spearhead called “Stay Human Vol. II (The Remixes)” which was recently mastered here is out now. CLICK HERE to stream via your favorite stream service.

The License Lab which is a library music company that I do a lot of mastering and metadata work for, released a short video that shows a bit of what happens behind the scenes from day today. Check it out HERE.

I did some significant beta testing and help with WaveLab 10 (mastering software) which was released this fall. You can see a short teaser video HERE.
