The Sad Machinery of Spring (Hannibal/Rykodisc)
The new Tin Hat record is released! It’s a wonderully quirky journey into the old world of hand cranked instruments, minature violins, and narative melodies, with special guest Zeena Parkins (Bjørk) on harp.
Jon at Spleenless Mastering has an undeniably keen ear at pinpointing the feel of a song, allowing a beat to ascend to its proper place in the mix. A recording sent his way is a tape sent to a bronzing machine; the Air Jordan sneaks that come away with a gold finish.
