We are Still Album

"Marching to the beat of their own drum," Cordcalling's latest album, "We are Still," is a bold throwback to "old-school" musical recording, mixing, and Mastering. Recording onto magnetic tape and mixing with analog gear is somewhat of a lost art form, so they worked with experienced engineers Matt Grady and Kyle Ashbourne of London, ON’s award-winning EMAC Studios, who had the expertise and the equipment necessary to carry out their unique vision. EMAC Studio’s head engineer, Matt Grady, expressed his excitement about working on this unconventional album: he remarked that the project forced him (in a good way) to use the most analog gear that he has ever used on an LP. The duo was so committed to their organic mission that they found one of the only studios that Masters albums using analog equipment, Los Angeles’ Capsule Labs, and pressed their songs onto vinyl. “We are Still” stands out amidst a digitally saturated market, reclaiming the natural, warm atmosphere of sound art that stands the test of time. The LP has already caught the interest of local media, including London’s SCENE Magazine, Our London, and The Londoner. John Sharpe at SCENE Magazine appraises the musical arrangements on “We are Still” as “hav[ing] evolved since [Cordcalling’s] latest release ‘Obsessed by the Light’”; he describes their newest album’s sound as the “same punk/rock/grunge sound with a lot more polish.” “We are Still" is available on vinyl, CD and digital platforms online with CD Baby and it's affiliate websites and at local record stores, including London, ON's Grooves Records.
