Slight Bight – This Again

This Again

Slight Bight is a vehicle for Gavin McCarthy’s songs. Gavin’s songs are catchy and tuneful while still allowing for exploration, especially in sections that feature Andrew Stern on guitar. Gavin performs quadruple duty – playing bass, drums, guitar, and singing! Could have named the band Quad Bight. You might have heard or seen Gavin play […]

Dinoczar

burntout

Look, it’s unclear to us if Dinoczar recorded anything from this track at Q, though we have concrete confirmation that the band did track some of its upcoming EP in Studio B with Matt Tahaney.  With a name like Dinoczar we have to share their recent write up in Boston Hassle about their new single.

OutOfContext

Eternals first swung by Q during a Rubber Tracks session, and then returned for a weekend in Studio B along with Rubber Tracks engineer Aaron Bastinelli. The quiet, clean atmosphere of Out of Context sounds like it’s just the right one for this lovely tune. Out Of Context by Eternals

Caspian – Dust and Disquiet

dust and disquiet

We were pleased to host North Shore band Caspian while they tracked another full length at Q. They brought Matt Bayles (he’s worked with all sorts of well known/heavy bands, such as Isis/Mastodon) with them, and it sounds amazing. The record is richly textures and layered, and the band made use of pretty much every […]

We hosted and met so many bands during the 18 month long residency of Converse’s Rubber Tracks pop up studio that we’ve completely lost track of everyone who visited! Here’s a great couple of loud sludgy rocker from Sleep Crime. I’d love to know what was going on with the guitars, the fuzz is fantastically lush! […]
