9/18/08 || Santa Cruz Psycho Billy

We're putting the final touches on The Stellar Corpses record this week. The Corpses are bringing Psycho billy to a new level with this record by adding a touch of the good ol Santa Cruz style circle pit Punk Circa 1995. Don't sleep on this one....

8/21/08 || The Pillow Fights

Pillow Fight just got done recording and mixing 10 songs for their debut CD. We kept it simple and rough. All the songs were way under 2 minutes and we did little to no production. It's what they wanted and honestly I think it sounds awesome! Be sure to check em out when you get a chance > P.F.



8/15/08 || Cutting Room Floor...

Stellar Corpses just finished tracking Drms Bass and Guitar for their upcoming full length. This is their second time at The Compound and this time around we went for full production. We spent a good amount of time on tones and praformance, really stripping it down and making sure we were happy with everything being put onto tape (hard disk actually). This record is going to be amazing! The drums are big enough to fill an arena, The bass is thick and driving with just enough click to give it that psychobilly flair. it's all held together with  around 10 tracks of guitar layerd with Emilios Pic Slides and bends. We'll be putting the "icing on the cake" so to speek next week with vocals and some more surprises. keep checking in for updates and maybe even a little taste of this amazing "Psycho cake".  While Stellar Corpses were on break The Compound stayed hard at work recording a demo for Eastern Approaches. These guys are an awesome band, think Red Sparrow meets ISIS. Be sure to check em out. Till next time, "Keep up the good Rock"!

4/15/08 || The Churches were Vacant

it was a weekend filled with Budwiser, and Rock n' Roll. Vacant Churches from San Jose were in the studio this weekend recording  7 of 14 songs for an up coming A side B side LP.
With Jonny Manak now on drums for Vacant Churches and "J-Bass" on bass the rhythm section is bone crushing with some added surprises from J-Bass! The 7 songs are topped off with driving Guitar parts, eery but playful Keys and sticky vocal melodies from the one and only Mel.

If you are a true Punk/Rock n Roll fan you are going to love the new Vacant Churches Record.

Acoustic Folk/Country/Rock - someness



4/10/08 || Two If By Sea

We're putting the finishing touches on the new Two if by Sea record this week.
If the rock gods smile upon us we should be done with vocals and ready to mix by the end of the month. with the addition of Nate from Stalins War on bass the new TIBS record has enough drive to power a semi truck and catchy enough hooks to catch a 10 pound bass.
We went for a little more produced approach on this record than the last by concentrating on each individual instrument one at a time.  At the same time we approached the tones with a little more of an airy live feel to capture the unique energy and emotion that we have all grown to love about TIBS. Be sure to check out the new tracks either here or on the TIBS website at the end of the month.
