How ‘LOUD’ is your band’s new cd? Interesting Mastering article

Here’s a link to a very interesting article about cd-mastering and the overall trend towards GETTIN’ LOUD in the age of the ipod-shuffle, courtesy of Chicago Mastering Service.

Maybe I’ll do a little analysis of some Tangleweed wav-forms one of these days, to see how we compare with My Bloody Valentine, Radiohead, Nirvana and The Stooges in the FILL THE BOX wars.

Mike Hagler at Kingsize mastered our first two cd’s, and will most likely do the same on #3 (which we’re recording with him presently).

Special thanks to my friend Adam Yoffe at Prize Beagle Studios for turning me onto this article. Adam is recording my friends Milk At Midnight, with whom I play a bit of banjo in a gorgeously loud rock setting. Look for another banjo track on their upcoming cd.
