Blast House in the Black!

posted Jul 11, 2010, 10:15 AM by Landon Arkens
June was the first month that Blast House Studios has covered its expenses- A big milestone!  The business is healthily growing as Mike, the owner, continues to devise opportunities that are mutually beneficial to related local businesses and offer educational perks to his roster of music students taking lessons at the Madison Music Foundry.  Projects that are in the pipeline include:
*Recording session observation days.
*Workshops designed to introduce kids and adults to the recording process and technologies that happen to make an album.
*Possibly getting a nice grand piano for the live room.

Tret Fure's album, The Horizon, released last month and has already been gathering good reviews.  The songs "Millie" and "Grace of God" can be listened to here.

A Minute Jack Forum is releasing their debut album on July 20th at High Noon Saloon, 6pm.  If you like Sonic Youth, Interpol, and The Tragically Hip, then you'll love these guys.  I'll have song examples up following the release date.

Catch Kid finished mixing with me last week and are off to master with Justin Perkins.  Their brand of piano/synth pop is powerful catchy.  I'll be excited to see how they assemble a live show!
