TechTalk: My Little Helpers

Sep 1, 2014, By Kevin Becka

I remember the first time I heard the term “mobile apps.” It was 2005, in the pre-smartphone era when Mix editor Tom Kenny asked me to hunt down some candidates for a feature. After much searching, and trying to imagine the potential for portable audio companion apps that in large part hadn’t yet been defined, I found there wasn’t much that was useful or mobile. Now, I don’t go a day without using one or more as a helpmate for engineering, writing, teaching or just living life....

Drew Zingg's Debut Album Project

Feb 1, 2013, By Matt Gallagher

Guitarist Drew Zingg’s self-titled debut solo album is a revelation, and it was carefully designed to be one. It features the teamwork of Zingg with an elite rhythm section: Vinnie Colaiuta (drums), Will Lee (bass) and George Whitty (keyboards/arrangements). Together, and with guest vocalists and horn players, they blend seamlessly as a band to create 12 soulful and smoking tracks that span jazz, rock, funk, blues, pop and more. ...

Jim James

Feb 1, 2013, By Blair Jackson

When we last checked in with Jim James, the charismatic and visionary frontman of the eclectic rock/soul/neo-psychedelic band My Morning Jacket, they had recorded a stunning album with co-producer/engineer Tucker Martine, called Circuital, essentially live in the studio, which in that case was actually an echo-y church school gymnasium in the band’s hometown of Louisville....

Recording 'Three Chords Good'

Jan 1, 2013, By Barbara Schultz

Engineer/producer/mixer Dave Cook has been working on and off with Graham Parker since the artist made Struck by Lightning in 1991. “The last couple of albums he made were done on a small budget,” says Cook, whose recording credits also include B-52s, Buckwheat Zydeco and Nick Cave. ...

Graham Parker Reunites With The Rumour

Jan 1, 2013, By Barbara Schultz

In Judd Apatow’s latest comedy, This Is 40, British new wave survivor Graham Parker plays himself: a 60-something singer/songwriter who had a few hits a few decades ago, but who’s been living a relatively quiet life for years. Back in the ’70s and ’80s Parker had a backing band, The Rumour, and he was a young major-label artist with a soulful voice, songs full of biting sarcasm, and a career full of promise. ...

Chris Zane

Jan 1, 2013, By David Weiss

There are expectations, and then there are great expectations. The latter is what you have when your band is Passion Pit, and you have to record a sophomore album that will compare with your globe-smashing full-length debut, Manners....
