|Kitchen in the Media|
Several projects mastered at the Kitchen have found their way on to the local and national media scene recently.
The Avett Brothers performed on the Grammys with Bob Dylan. Mumford and Sons started it off with a rousing rendition of "The Cave". The Avett Brothers followed it up with folk anthem "Head Full of Doubt, Road Full of Promise". The kicker was Bob Dylan stepping out and all joining in with the classic "Maggie's Farm".

Danny Infantino, classical guitarist extraordinaire (although doing some cool dabbling into bossa), has been heard on several radio/TV programs including All My Children, My Name is Earl, Saving Grace and most recently on NPR.
Here's a new press release regarding our long-time client David Lowery...
The long-awaited solo effort by David Lowery of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven has finally hit the shelves. Opening to glowing reviews, the critics resoundingly have given The Palace Guards high marks. Spin Magazine gave the record 8 out of 10 stars and Magnet Magazine featured Lowery with an mp3 download of the title track. Recorded in Richmond, Virginia at Sound of Music with his long-time studio collaborators John Morand, Alan Weatherhead and Miguel Urbiztondo, Lowery keeps his smart, wise cracking attitude about love, politics and people. The title track "is every working stiff's national anthem," said Brent Lambert of the Kitchen Mastering in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. This is the seventh record that Lambert has mastered for Lowery including Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven releases. This record was one of the last recorded at the Broad Street location of Sound of Music. "I always loved the room tone at the Broad Street building and the arrangements on this record make good use of the space," remarked mastering engineer Brent Lambert. "I don't usually take home every record that I work on, but this one I took home and really gave it a listen without my engineering hat on. Dave is such a great songwriter," added Lambert. "It's the whole package - lyrically and musically."
John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats and The Extra Lens has signed with Merge Records. The Extra Lens is a side project for John with Franklin Bruno. Undercard was released the end of 2010. John has also just finished up a new Mountain Goats record, All Eternals Deck, due out March 26, 2011. Watch for that. You're going to love it! John has also had a couple of star turns. First, John appeared with Stephen Colbert on The Colbert Report. Paste Magazine wrote about it and you can see the interview here. More recently John appeared with Superchunk on the Jimmy Fallon Show. To see the performance click here. I also caught The Mountain Goats at the end of a particularly moving episode of This American Life. OK, one more thing about the Mountain Goats (John is on a roll!) - Rian Johnson writer/director of the films Brick and The Brothers Bloom, shot John's whole performance of The Life of the World to Come.
HBO hit series True Blood has prominently featured the works of CC Adcock off of his "Lafayette Marquis" album which we mastered back in 2007. The swampy New Orleans back-line rhythms with CC's unique guitar tones lend just the right mood to this popular series about modern day vampires.
Zachary Richard 's latest album "Last Kiss" was featured on NPR's Weekend Edition on which they did an extensive interview and played several tracks including "Acadian Driftwood" which features Canadian uber-diva Celine Dion .
Also on NPR , Fiona Richey's Scotland-based celtic music show Thistle and Shamrock featured North Carolina based duo Little Windows (Julee Glaub and Mark Weems) on a recent show (Program 1354). Apparantly, the duo's strong vocal harmonies and traditional Appalachian and Celtic influences were strong enough for Fiona to cull them from the sea of disks she receives and warrant a feature.
Hindugrass was just featured on WUNC's own program, The State of Things . Hindugrass combines the sounds of North Indian classical and folk music traditions with American bluegrass using instruments rangining from the sarod, tabla, fiddle, upright bass, jaw harp and more. You can listen to the program online .
This adds to the list of Kitchen-based projects that have found their way into nationally recognized media programming. Other recent appearances have included Katherine Whalen in HBO's Sex and the City , Nick Lowe 's "At My Age" album feature on NPR's Weekend Edition.
