I'm obsessed with the "Streetlights" song from their "Ritual" album and overall I love the production and sound of the whole album - epic bitter-sweet pop hymns - cool recording & mix that really represent that music in the best possible way...
Does anyone have any idea about their studio work, or any link about "behind the scenes" , "making of..."
Co produced by Mulder. Also co-produced by Max Dingel, who engineered the first one. Incredibly detailed engineer.
And yes...if you can't get a great sound at A+B2, it ain't the gear...
Ah, yes, I noticed. I don't know the other guy, but he sure must be competent. I would love to "co-produce and co-engineer" an indie pop album with any of those guys. Could learn a thing or two... or three.
Just had "Streetlights" on repeat and singing along in the car while driving to a business meeting in another city today. It struck some nostalgic chord in me or something.
I wonder what did they do to that vocal to make it so alineated and weird - sort of midrangey, bandwidth limited, but perfect for the song... and triggering that plate or something in a perfect "indie" raw way. I know it's also the voice, but engineering helped it, too. And those guitar power chords in chorus - what kind of ping pong or whatever delay - pre amp or post amp - part of guitarist chain or done in the mix - and stuff like that - little details that can be useful for other scenarios, too.
I'd like to hear about producing and mixing that album. Maybe it's not something special to most guys, but it is close to a perfect indie sound to me. And I also love the sound of "Fever to tell" album by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs that Moulder mixed. I obviously appreciate what he does. Perfect "indie pop" sound to me.
