I recently mixed a few songs with my friends in NO FUN, which were recorded quick and dirty in their practice space last month. They sound good and rowdy, as they should! The songs should be online soon.
Also, check out this really nice review of Jim Elkington & Nathan Salsburg’s album Avos by Peter Margasak: http://www.chicagoreader.com/chicago/music-selva-oscura-elkington-salsburg-cso/Content?oid=4456882
There’s lots of other stuff coming up this Fall that I’m totally psyched about, but I have to get my laundry done before soundcheck, so hang tight!!
