Algernon Cadwallader - Some Kind of Cadwallader

Mastering, PreviousRyan SchwabeComment

Algernon Cadwallader have studied `90s Kinsella recordings like they were on tomorrow’s final exam. Some Kind of Cadwallader is the living, breathing resurrection of caP’n Jazz and American Football as it is precisely the type of intricate and meandering, yet relaxed indie rock fans of those bands will thrive on, with fragile sung/yelped vocals fronting it all.

Onedependent & Taki76 - Radio Recession

Mixing, Production, 2008, PreviousRyan SchwabeComment
They call it, “Old school soulful space funk making love to electronic analog punk jazz;” I would call it a fascinating album full of beats, samples, and original music that would make both Beck and DJ Shadow drool. This is a wonderfully wild and weird album, exploring genres around every corner. From the 70’s slap bass-driven funk of “Moonbooze Knows What Time It Is,” to the fast & jazzy “Walk Among Us (Autonomia)” which features upright bass, piano, horns, cut up drum beats, and is that a ukelele we hear? While most tracks are instrumental, they feature a huge variety of samples from God knows where, amply scratched and manipulated by the DJ, and a few songs feature lead vocals, like the poetic rap of Count Bass D on laid back guitar-driven “ONE (Dependent on None). This is a fun party album, but also rewards the listeners who listen closely.
