Karaoke version

November 21st, 2010

As you may have been aware, we were recently played on BBC introducing, southern counties radio. The track entitled ‘Untitled’ went down so well with listeners last week (Sunday 14th November) that it was played again today. This is very surprising. Surprising because during the airplay the vocal track was completely inaudible. A little bit like a sing-along Creaking Chair Karaoke version.



This oddity has something to do with the dynamic range compression of FM broadcasting conflicting with the way our recordings were mixed. This above sketch has something to do with what I have just said.

I still don’t really understand compression but intend to grasp it soon. I have also never been particular interested in sound and the technical process of recording. Sound is not my friend. It’s like a bar of soap that keeps slipping out of my hand.

I am now feeding blog posts to twitter and facebook and I will try not to annoy you too much.

P.s. Mrs Fitzherbert’s is the place to be this Friday 19th November…

Airplay

November 11th, 2010

Good evening,

Our catchy little number, ‘Untitled’ from our latest release will be played on BBC INTRODUCING: THE SOUTH presented by Melita Dennett, Sunday 7-9pm on BBC Sussex, BBC Surrey, BBC Solent. Listen live/again here or on an old wireless, somewhere between 95.3-104.8FM.

If you can listen live, then tell Melita how much you enjoyed the song. Ha! Email the show at unsigned@bbc.co.uk or text on 81333 starting the text with the word Radio.

And on another note,

Below is an image I made at says-it.com. Apparently everyone was doing this three years ago, but its the first time I found the website. I have recently been thinking of reviving some old cassettes.

In words

We are delighted to be included in the November issue of The Brighton Source magazine. The review features a Reeves & Mortimer reference which is odd but lovely. Have a read from the link or pick it up from the usual places in Brighton town.
