Lightbulb Beth Gibbons tracked her Out Of Season vocals with an SM-57

One of the best vocalist ever and she chooses an SM-57. Just let that sink in.

Yeah, I notice them too when I posted it … but I never noticed them before. The more experience you have, the less magical everything sounds. Maybe it's an artifact of low-resolution YouTube video. I have it on vinyl.

She has a 47. She could have used any mic in the world for these projects. She selected these cheapies for creative reasons. Of course anyone can judge those decisions to be right or wrong. Obv lots of rly great singers choose SM57/58s for their records—Bjork and Bono, famously, amongst many others.
