Hey Shindiggers! I wanted to share a recent discovery with you. A new Rhythm & Blues artist that's doin' it proper in San Francisco California, Nick Waterhouse!
He is the owner of Press Records and the leader of the band Nick Waterhouse & The Tarots. He is going out of his way to use the best methods of production recording on all analogue equipment and mastering each 45 straight from tape to lacquer. None of his 7" 45 RPM vinyl pressings ever get put in to a digital format or processed by any computer programs much like the way they do things over at Daptone Records in Brooklyn. We here at Shindig! are fans of both record labels and we like to think of ourselves as 7" connoisseurs of sorts, and to us, nothing beats a pure analogue sound!
Here are some digital versions of his recordings :
In our opinion they sound much better on 7" 45 RPM vinyl so, do yourself a favor and go and get it here:
Our next Shindig! is on November 25th 2011 at The Piston, 937 Bloor Street West. See you on the dance floor!
