Professional AND Friendly NOT Crap
An old friend from my Somerville days recently contacted me about doing some mixing and mastering. Matt Savage has been the vocalist for Godboy, The Jack McCoys, and Joy – each great bands with distinct sonic qualities. Over the past several years, he’s been quietly (and sometimes noisily) recording strange and beautiful noise-pop nuggets under the name Humboldt, and this was the reason for Matt to reach out.
This project is a bit of a new direction for me, because Matt will be releasing one song at a time as the mixes are completed. It’s been a real treat to open the tracks for a Humboldt song and let the textures unfold. I’ve always been a fan of Matt’s lyrical and vocal style, and it’s great to hear that voice again in this context. Working on these mixes between longer projects is like taking a day trip to the amusement park.
