Episode #13: From Riff To Record

A&R, Publicity 0 comments
Brooklyn band “Here We Go Magic” is set to release their fourth album with indie label Secretly Canadian on October 15th, and we wanted to explore the process that the album went through from “farm to table.” First we speak with Michael Bloch, guitarist in the band, who explains how he and song writer Luke Temple tackled their first album as a two piece using only rudimentary tools to create a full band, live, in the studio sound. Next we speak with one of Secretly Canadian’s founders, Ben Swanson, and the man responsible for signing “Here We Go Magic,” who tells us why he loves the band and the label’s role in seeing the record through completion. To discuss one of the final links in the chain, we talk with Ian McKinnon, the head of label relations at one of the oldest music streaming services, Rhapsody.
