Misstress Barbara Reunites with The Lodge

Misstress Barbara, known as Italian-born/Montreal raised international DJ/pop artist has recently released her sophomore album "Many Shades Of Grey" (MapleMusic Records) on April 12th, 2012. The new album was mastered at The Lodge by Emily Lazar and her team at The Lodge and follows up 2009's Juno nominated album "I'm No Human" (also mastered by The Lodge).  

Barbara Bonfiglio started out on drums at the age of 12 and by the time she was 20 she was working as a DJ in the Montreal club circuit, in addition to sharing engineering duties. Her interest and talent in production and DJ-ing eventually led to an incredible career as an internationally renowned DJ selling out shows all over the globe alongside some of the top DJ's of the last decade.

By 2009, Misstress Barbara decided to step away from the turntables and release her first solo album titled “I’m No Human" featuring much loved musicians like Sam Roberts and collaborations with Bjorn Yttling (of Peter, Bjorn & John) & Brazillian Girls.  The album was nominated for a Juno in 2010 for Best Dance Recording Of The year and launched Bonfiglio's solo career as a dance/electronic artist.

Produced and mixed entirely by Misstress Barbara, "Many Shades Of Grey" showcases Bonfiglio's intricate production style.  In a recent statement, Bonfiglio said, "I'm proud of the evolution in the writing, I really think every song has a strong hook, which was something I wanted to make happen. I very much enjoy performing a song where you see the audience singing along, especially after 16 years as an underground DJ."

Garbage Master First Release In 7 Years With The Lodge

After a 7 year hiatus, 90's alt rockers Garbage are set to release their first studio album since 2005 titled "Not Your Kind of People" on May 15th, 2012. Garbage drummer/legendary Grammy nominated producer Butch Vig (Foo Fighters, Green Day, Nirvana) produced the album with the band and mixed it with Billy Bush.  The album was mastered by Emily Lazar and her team at The Lodge!

In an interview with Rolling Stone in October, Butch Vig explained, "We got together with no agenda other than to just jam a little bit, f--- around and see what we came up with, and it was inspiring. I think you can hear some energy and a vibe in the tracks that sounds refreshing, a little bit more to me like the first two records."

Garbage launched their own record label STUNVOLUME in anticipation of the release and plan on a massive tour featuring dates across North America and Europe. The band just released a video for their first single "Blood for Poppies" which you can watch below. Enjoy!
