The Sea and Cake Release New Album "Runner" Mastered at The Lodge

Seminal 90's indie darlings The Sea & Cake have released their 10th album "Runner" this Tuesday, September 18th on Thrill Jockey Records.  The album was mastered by Heba Kadry at The Lodge. 

Receiving Pitchfork's Best New Track stamp of approval with upbeat/electronic tinged lead single "Harps", the new album brings the band's iconic sound back to a more refined direction reminiscent of their earlier albums. 
The album was engineered & mixed by The Sea & Cake drummer & highly demanded producer John McEntire (Stereolab, Broken Social Scene) at his studio in Chicago and of course features lead singer Sam Prekop's hushed airy vocals and summer inspired lyrics.  "Runner" also showcases Prekop's excellent modular synth programming, hot off the heels of their cinematic electronic 2011 album titled "The Moonlight Butterfly"

Stream The Killers "Battle Born" Mastered at The Lodge!

Pretty sure The Killers don't need any introductions...possibly the biggest band in the world? I'm sure Bono might not be too happy about that statement but we certainly think they are.  Even if you haven't followed their entire repertoire, there is no doubt that these guys have written some of the best pop/anthemic songs over the last decade.

"Battle Born" (Island/Vertigo) was mastered by Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar and her team at The Lodge earlier this summer and it's been incredible to be part of such an amazing release.  Produced and mixed by some of the world's biggest names in audio, the team includes Steve Lillywhite, Damian Taylor, Brenden O'Brien, Stuart Price, Daniel Lanois and Alan Moulder.

The album is due to be released on September 17th but in the mean time, kick back and wrap your ears around their full album stream on iTunes right HERE.



Imagine Dragons' Debut Album Tops Charts!

Las Vegas' finest musical export is synth rockers Imagine Dragons and they are making quite the impact with their debut album "Night Visions" (Interscope/KIDinaKORNER).  The band returned to The Lodge this summer to work on their full length album.  The Lodge has previously worked with the band on their hugely popular "Continued Silence EP" earlier this year. 

Mixed by Grammy-winning engineers Manny Marroquin & Mark Needham, the album was produced by the band and mega pop producer Alex Da Kid (Rihanna, Eminem). "Night Visions" topped the charts debuting at #1 on iTunes and #2 on Amazon in less then 24 hours after it's release; we couldn't be more proud of these guys!! Imagine Dragons are all about achieving a huge sound nuanced with thrashing driving drums, and dense layers of distorted synths; this album is all killer, no filler!  Be sure not to miss this smash hit fall release!
