Producing Detangler

A quick shot from the control room on the first of five tracking days with Los Angeles pop/rock band Detangler. This album was a joy to work on from pre-production through recording and mixing. Guitarist/vocalist Davin Givhan, has performed with Lauryn Hill and Saul Williams among others and was joined in the studio by bassist Anthony Shadduck (Nels Cline, Psychic Temple), drummer Bryan Kertenian, and keyboardist John Clement Wood (Learning Music, The Black Keys).

The approach to recording this record was to encourage the band to play live in the room together without headphones. With the exception of vocals and horns, we only used dynamic microphones in the final mix.
