Matt Aquiline & The Dead End Streets - Coming Home

Matt Aquiline & The Dead End Streets

Coming Home

"Coming Home" was produced by Dana Cannone and Aquiline at the Church Recording Studio. It features five Aquiline-penned songs, one perfect guitar solo by Neil Carr on "The Break" (according to Cannone), a standout lead vocal by Heather Catley on “Survivable” and a mandolin cameo by Rob James of The Clarks on “Pennsylvania.” M.A.D.E.S. marries folk, rock, blues, country and a little blue-eyed soul into a Roots Rock/Americana sound that is pure Pittsburgh, with skill, authenticity and the kind of depth you develop surviving a few cold Winters.

Glo Phase - Halftone

Glo Phase

Halftone

Hazy, instrumental beats of the downtempo/hip hop variety. This album was written during an extended stay in New Orleans, winter 2017. Composed mainly on a single drum machine/sampler, the album lends itself to a consistently dreamy, lo fi vibe, yet each track still retains it's own identity. With a shorter overall song length and lots of the tracks fluidly morphing into each other the album works best as a start to finish listen (just over 30 minutes). Enjoy.

The music sits comfortably in the experimental, psych and alternative rock categories while occasionally incorporating elements of desert, drone and post-rock. Bass and Drums tracked by J Vega at The Wilderness Recording Studio, Zelienople, Pennsylvania. Guitar, electric sitar, and Mellotron tracked by Trevor Richards. All songs produced and mixed by Trevor Richards. All songs mastered by KRAMER at Noise Miami.
