I'm really enjoying bringing recording artists into Hillside Recorders in Hayward, CA these days. Such a great sounding room and the staff lead by Bob Nunes and Jim Hawthorne make for smooth and productive sessions,
A few weeks ago we had the Bay Area indie group The Treacherous French in for a day and they walked away that evening with 5 songs tracked, overdubbed and and mixed. One nice surprise was a twist on Metallica's "Nothing Else Matters", to which they lent the band's signature swampy, Cajun, folky Celtic sound to… this time including accordion and glockenspiel. Treacherous indeed!
