ME MY HEAD – “SURVIVAL IN NO MANS LAND” [ALBUM REVIEW]

Now this is rock! “Survival In No Mans Land” is definitely one of the best indie rock albums I’ve heard in quite sometime. They have such a unique style that set them apart from the rest similar to Incubus’ creativity which brought them huge success. They have that great indie rock feel while adding the modern, spacey, and electro tones to compliment their strong original sound.Here is the band:

The tempo of their music feels extremely happy, while optimistically speaking of the many sorrows encountered from love in the past. Their hit “Night Is On Fire” is an awesome song getting alot of feedback from fans throughout the internet. The vocals and overall musical structure of “So Much” is an instant hit, making you fall in love with ME MY HEAD right away. Visit iTunes to purchase here. Having been released in November of 2009, be on the lookout for their newest work, I’m sure we won’t be let down.

Diego Stocco – The Bassoforte – Homemade Creation

“Few days ago I started thinking about how I could re-purpose the keyboard of the dismantled piano I keep in the garden, so I thought to build a new instrument by combining it with some other parts I had laying around.

I ended up with this mechanical hybrid thing I thought to call “Bassoforte” (bass + pianoforte).

The neck is from a broken electric bass, as a bridge I used a cabinet handle, the pickups are from a guitar, and the part at the top where the strings are attached is a chimney cap, which works as resonator as well as percussive sound.

The track I created is a tribute to my Dad who is a big fan of Western comic books and “spaghetti western” films, and because of him I am too.”

I hope you’ll like it!

The track is available also at my Bandcamp page: http://diegostocco.bandcamp.com/track…

How to Make Acoustic Panels for your Studio

Acoustic treatments are often used to help improve the acoustics of a room by taming “flutter echoes,” “room modes,” and other problems which arise from a room’s dimensions and construction.

Although a variety of treatments are available for commercial use, they tend to be quite expensive. After some research both online and in print, we came across several sources for DIY acoustic treatments using rigid fiberglass panels and simple frames. These are often referred to as “bass traps,” although the ones that we’re focusing on have a fairly wide rage of absorption. While commercial versions are available for almost $100, we were able to make these panels for about $24 each.

We can not take credit for this design, but have combined several people’s ideas into a step-by-step guide. Most importantly, we give credit to Ethan Winer’s excellent article, Build a Better Bass Trap.
