For those you who missed the inaugural episode of RECORD/RECEIVE, our new live-to-tape series, the concept is simple: One band. One studio. One take. All caught on tape. When we first envisioned the show, we discussed the possibility of shooting episodes at various music-related locales around the city — recording studios, home studios, music venues, and so on. But after some deliberation, we have decided to keep season one focused on filming and recording at some of our scene’s many fine studios. This will allow us to maintain the sound quality we desire, while also fixing attention on some very deserving people and local institutions.
With that said, our second episode features emerging post-grunge trio Flower performing “Deadly Ill” from their 2016 debut, Waste of Life. It was shot and recorded at the venerable Glow in the Dark Studios in Midtown Atlanta, which sits on the former site of Cheshire Sound Studios, the first dual 24-track facility in the Southeast. The session was recorded by GITD owner and esteemed producer Matt Goldman, who has worked with the likes of Underoath, Anberlin, As Cities Burn, The Chariot and others. With Goldman at the helm, the band churns out an explosive rendition of their anthemic single, which makes good on all the early Nirvana comparisons that group has been earning since their LP was released last month. Check it out above and make sure to stay tuned for our next episode in the coming weeks.
