Hey everyone, we haven’t updated this site in quite a while. We’ve been very busy. Hopefully, we’ll be adding some more of the great music we’ve been recording to the web site soon. In the meantime, if you want to keep up to date with us on a more regular basis, please like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. We’re almost always up to something around here. Also, we love to receive comments about the studio and rehearsal space on various pages of the site, but if you have a question you need answered and need to contact us directly, the best way to do that is still by emailing us at info@redplanetsound. OK now that that’s settled, we hope to be hearing from you. And you’ll be hearing more from us on here in the near future.

A while ago Psychic Teens came in to Red Planet and recorded some songs that would be released as an album entitled Teen. It was eventually pressed to vinyl by Golden Voyage Records and has been receiving some pretty high praise ever since, but this video review that has surfaced on YouTube tops them all:

It seems as if this fourth week will have been the finishing up of major construction. These past seven days were spent running our speaker and audio cables from the control room to the various tracking rooms, drywall installation was completed, fire sprinklers were installed, and new flooring was laid down.

Our third week of construction was spent installing sliding doors and windows in our control room, vocal booths and drum room, hanging more drywall, framing out a green room for clients, and running some of the cable between the control room and the isolation rooms.

We have just completed the second week of construction at Red Planet. I think it’s safe to say that we are all exhausted but we can’t slow down now. We still have much to do. This week we framed out and sheetrocked our amplifier isolation rooms, framed our drum isolation room and floored and partially framed our control room. Check out the pictures below. Mouse over for a brief description and click for a full size image.

As some of you may already know, we have begun construction at Red Planet. We are building a new and improved control room, 3 amplifier isolation booths, 2 vocal booths, and a drum isolation room. We have been hard at work for just over a week now and things are coming along nicely. We will update this page every week with pictures so that you can follow our progress. Check out what we’ve done so far. Mouse over each picture for a brief description.

Today we are offering up Halo Of Snakes‘ explosive performance from January 22nd, 2011 for free digital download. If you like what you hear, you should probably go and buy their record Viper Letters And Murder Ballads available on 10″ orange vinyl from Harvcore Records.

Here’s a sample song from their set:

Here is Worshiper’s live set which was recorded on January 22nd, 2011. This live recording was originally offered as a bonus track to their album To Binge And Purge In L.A. if you purchased the album digitally. Now you can get it without buying their record, although, if you don’t have it, you still should. It’s great and is only $2 from their Bandcamp page.

Here’s a sample song from the set:

Anyone who has been following us via social media or this web site may already know that we have had a few shows at the studio over the past year. We’ve recorded them all with the intention of releasing them via internet. We’ve been backlogged with studio work but are now happy to announce our first Live At Red Planet release featuring Circle The City. This .zip folder contains the 7 song set they performed on 3/27/11 in the studio in front of an audience. The set (like all sets we will be posting) is completely live. No overdubs or digital fixes. Some of these songs will be part of a 4 way split CD with Dangerbird, Erode & Disappear, and Thee Nosebleeds due out in May from¬†SRA Records.

Here’s a sample song from the set:

As mentioned in a previos post, we’ve had some difficulties with our web site in the past and have also been pretty busy. As a result, a lot of news was never posted and we’ve got a lot to catch up on. So, in further (not new) news, we are happy to announce that I, Fanblades released their new 12″ In Retrospect not too long ago (well, not too, too long ago…). Recorded almost entirely live in the studio, In Retrospect is the band’s first vinyl release. It features 4 songs, a hand screened cover, comes with a digital download, and is limited to 200 copies. Hopefully, as of this writing, they still have copies left to sell and you can get one for yourself. If not, you can always check out their Bandcamp page and stream the record there. Here’s a preview:

“This album marks a significant milestone in the i, fanblades career. Between adding new instrumentation, adopting new writing methods, and finding new and better ways to record in our favorite studio to work in up til this point… In Retrospect is simultaneously the best representation of i, fanblades to date, and also the summation of an age that ties together literally all of the styles, methods, themes and ideas of the past recordings. It is also the first release put to vinyl. We certainly hope you enjoy.”
