Silver Darling, Live@The Hangar Studios

04.19.2009
Thumbnail image for Silver Darling, Live@The Hangar Studios

It’s a revival. You can’t walk by this tent of highly impassioned hollerers and not feel the urge to be saved by their holy rock and roll, which seems to be inspired and transmitted from another plane altogether. I love it when singers sound like they’re about to crack with insanity. Kevin Lee is one [...]

04.07.2009
Bag of Kittens live at The Hanger Recording Studio in Sacramento for Luxury Wafers

A groovy folk collaboration, Bag Of Kittens is Allyson Seconds, the moonbeam who brings honey velvet vocals and grounded female energy, and Anton Barbeau, the energetic, psychedelic, rock-pop-punk sunray on piano, guitar and driving Neil Diamond-esque vocals. Allyson and Anton lay down easy-going vibes recording live at The Hangar in Sacramento. Listening to their smooth, [...]

Silver Darling Video: Brick and Mortar

04.02.2009

When we recorded Silver Darling, Live@ the Hangar in Sacramento, it was still freezing cold – both outside and in – as evidenced by their stylish wintry getups. This is the first recording of their new song, Brick and Mortar, a devilishy inspired tune with anxiety provoking, dramatically yanking electric guitar riffs, super-warm Rickenbacker bass, [...]

03.24.2009

Jay Shaner’s Cowboy Killers, Live@The Hangar in Sacramento

03.21.2009
Cowboy Killers play live at The Hanger in Sacramento for Luxury Wafers

“Easy” repeatedly comes to mind when I scan for translation of my experience of the Cowboy Killers music to words. Shaner leads Sacramento’s Cowboy Killers, creating a spacious, smooth, temperate landscape and pouring out vocals akin to Pete Yorn at times, heavy duty on the Josh Rouse vibe. The band steadily streams hypnotic, slightly jazzy, [...]

Bag of Kittens Video – Allyson Seconds & Anton Barbeau – I Used To Say Your Name

A groovy collaboration, Bag Of Kittens is Allyson Seconds, the moonbeam who brings honey velvet vocals and grounded female energy, and Anton Barbeau, the energetic, psychedelic, rock-pop-punk sunray on piano, guitar and driving Neil Diamond-esque vocals. (Pictured left with cellist Alison). Bag of Kittens joined us at The Hangar in Sacramento for an all day [...]

Cowboy Killers Video, American Sky

03.03.2009

Live @ The Hangar in Sacramento, Cowboy Killers lay down a seemingly endless stream of trancelike, slightly jazzy rock-n-roll. Their vibe is vast as the sky, to which they allude in many of their songs. Cowboy Killers give  the feeling of hanging around in a lot of space. Cowboy Killers – American Sky – Luxury [...]

Two Sheds, Two Tracks plus Video: Undertow & Mama

02.27.2009

It only takes a second to get hooked on Two Sheds’ killer sound. They’re like a shiny space blanket that comes wrapped in a one inch square – they tend toward the unassuming side yet once unwrapped they just keep on giving in a generous and long-lasting way. These songs are potent. If you want [...]

Track Of The Day: Anton Barbeau, Leave It With Me

02.24.2009

Buttery mellow, softly upbeat and psychedelically sweet, Anton Barbeau (with Allyson Seconds accompanying vocally) woos with Leave It With Me.

New Sea of Bees Video with download: When Gnomes Applaud

02.24.2009

Another gem from an extraordinary artist: Sea of Bees records When Gnomes Applaud,  Live at The Hangar in Sacramento. Solid, rhythmic guitar and ethereal vocals make for an alluring trance. Jules could easily be singing in an alien or come-on language, like Sigur Ros…imagine it if that’s your thing….the song transports you to a new [...]

Sea of Bees, Live@The Hangar in Sacramento

02.15.2009
Sea of Bees plays live for Luxury Wafers during a session at The Hangar in Sacramento

Jules from Sacramento is Sea of Bees, nothing short of a supernatural sensation. I’m so excited about this these tracks. Jules’ sound is infectious and odd, and her high wispy register gives me the chills. We had the pleasure of recording her Live@The Hangar in Sacramento, where she’s been working with John Baccigaluppi. A one [...]

Anton Barbeau, Live@The Hangar in Sacramento

02.11.2009
Anton Barbeau performing live at the Hanger in Sacramento for Luxury Wafers

Affectionately known as Ant, Anton Barbeau, like the vibe that sprays out from his music, is kind, kooky and fun. His songs traipse along the edge of psychedelic shades of darker grey, claiming depth and layering, but not in a downer kind of way. High energy, Ant’s live session at the Hangar brimmed with tremendous [...]

Two Sheds, Live@The Hangar in Sacramento

02.09.2009
Two Sheds during their live Luxury Wafers session at The Hangar recording studio in Sacramento

Two Sheds is Caitlyn Gutenberger (killer songwriter, guitar player, quirky songbird, dragontamer) and John Gutenberger (vicious bass player, easygoing goodguy) plus a crew of other Sheds (Robert broke from engineering to play this session with them), depending on where and when. Fearlessly potent with a round, welcoming sound, Two Sheds embodies the quiet, spacious brilliance [...]

Premature Trackulation: Anton Barbeau and Allyson Seconds as Bag of Kittens, Say Your Name

01.08.2009

I’ve been listening to and singing this song over and over again the past few days. It’ll sink into your meninges and leave you invisibly altered. Anton Barbeau and Allyson Seconds (pictured left with Allison the cellist) interweave their similarly lush voices to tell a simple yet profound story, snug like a default sweater, duet [...]

Premature Trackulation: See of Bees (Jules), When Gnomes Applaud

01.07.2009

I’m so excited about this new artist, Jules, aka Sea of Bees. We had the pleasure of recording her Live@The Hangar in Sacramento, where she’s been working with John Baccigaluppi. Jules is a one girl phenomenon who wields eerily uncommon gifts in the departments of song structure, writing and singing. Pressed to compare, I’d say [...]

Premature Trackulation: Cowboy Killers, Sunday Afternoon

01.06.2009

For those not quite ready to let go of holi-daze, Cowboy Killer’s Sunday Afternoon is a gelled lazy afternoon tune that invokes a less attached spirit of CSNY’s Our House. Imagine loosely hanging with your best friend/lover in a creative space right at home…. the temperature’s easy, the light soft but clearly illuminative…..feels good. “You [...]

Premature Trackulation: Two Sheds, Undertow

01.04.2009

Oh oh oh we’re so excited we just had to leak out a track from Two Sheds, recorded Live@The Hangar in Sacramento for Luxury Wafers. Slide in from the very beginning on the velvet bassline that accompanies Caitlin’s clear, inviting, nuancy, matter-of-fact voice. The simple guitar sounds will make you long to spend your time [...]

All-Day Luxury, Live@The Hangar Studios in Sacramento

12.08.2008

Today was loaded. All day at The Hangar Recording Studios, a site that is rapidly becoming one of our favorite studios for easy-going, big-room, top-quality recording. Owner John Baccigaluppi, also publisher of Tape-Op Magazine, is Einstein-meets-Carl Lewis (minus the controlled stimulants) in his enormous capacity to smoothly and effectively run a full day’s live recording [...]
