(New York, NY – May 15, 2013) Channeling the ghost of Frankie Valli and the pluckiness of Jonathan Richman, musician Jordan Galland will release Wind Up Rabbit July 23rd via Slush Puppy Music.
Produced by Charlie Klarsfeld (The Americans, Cassandra Jenkins), Wind Up Rabbit is a 6-track EP that expands upon Galland’s pop music sensibility with help from guest musicians including Sean Lennon (on guitar), Charlotte Kemp Muhl (on vocals) and Jesse Brickel (percussion). This solo release follows a number of soundtrack projects – the cinematic nature of Galland’s music is just as evident on Wind Up Rabbit as it is on the soundtrack for Lena Dunham’s Tiny Furniture, The HBO Original series The Neistat Brothers, Dan Schechter’s Supporting Characters and more.
Like falling in love on Halloween or driving with the top down after your AC busts, Wind Up Rabbit is a little spooky and a bit improvisational, with just a dash of a summer fling. Look for it on iTunes and visit www.jordangalland.com for more.
In an industry where women make up less than 5% of the workforce, Women’s Audio Mission is leveling the playing field. This year, the nonprofit celebrates its 10 year anniversary, marking a decade of advancing women in music production and the recording arts. Read the full press release HERE.
Infrasonic Sound is excited to announce that former studio manager Eric Palmquist has acquired the recording space of Infrasonic Sound, located in the El Sereno neighborhood of Los Angeles. Eric will oversee all recording studio endeavors at the El Sereno space, while company founders Pete Lyman and Jeff Ehrenberg will continue to own and operate Infrasonic Mastering in Echo Park. An excerpt from the press release is below.
(Los Angeles, CA) Infrasonic Sound Recording Inc. in Los Angeles, the audio mastering and recording company owned by Pete Lyman and Jeff Ehrenberg, officially announced that Studio Manager Eric Palmquist has purchased and acquired the brand’s recording facility. The 16/24-track studio will remain in the El Sereno neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Infrasonic Mastering, which relocated to its custom-built mastering suites in Echo Park last spring, will continue to operate under the direction of co-owners Lyman (who also serves as the studio’s Principal Mastering Engineer) and Ehrenberg.
Established in 2004, Infrasonic was initially built from the ground up by its owners in what was once a motorcycle paint shop. Clients including The Mars Volta and No Age put the studio on the map, while Pete Lyman built the credibility of Infrasonic Mastering, studying under acclaimed engineer Richard Simpson. Since its inception, Infrasonic expanded its staff—including Grammy Award-winning mastering engineer John Greenham—and nearly doubled its client roster, setting the plan in motion for additional growth.
Palmquist, who will operate under the banner Palmquist Studios at Infrasonic Sound, is best known for his work on the albums Leave No Trace, the critically acclaimed LP from Fool’s Gold; 119, Trash Talk’s 2012 release via Odd Future Recordings; and Life Sux by Wavves (part of Rolling Stone’s Top 50 of 2011). He will continue to operate on the studio’s Trident 80C 32-channel console, 24-track tape machine and wide range of outboard gear, including Black Box Analog’s mic preamps, an endorser of Palmquist as an engineer/producer.

Playing “Go 2″ made me yearn for the feel-good lazy days of summer, where road trips and beach parties abound. It has a warm, comforting sound, with the track’s hand claps and AM-radio strut blending with Jordan’s sweet lyrics: “You’re my heartbeat/You’re my compass/You’re my anchor/You’re my sunset.” #Aww! Pop open a Coca-Cola bottle to this one and daydream about the month of June.
