Amy LaVere – Stereophile’s ‘Recording of the Month’

Posted on 21. Aug, 2014 by in News

Congratulations to Amy LaVere for her new album, ‘Runaway’s Diary‘, being selected as Stereophile Magazine‘s Recording of the Month! Produced by Luther Dickinson, mixed by Kevin Houston, and mastered by Brad at Euphonic. Vinyl sides were cut by Jeff Powell at Take Out Vinyl.

From the article:
Runaway’s Diary is the sound of stars aligning, both personally (judging by her lyrics) and musically, much of the latter due to a knockout production job by Luther Dickinson. The album sounds spacious, and while clearly focused on her voice, is immensely attractive for its full-bodied sound, its spare, tasteful arrangements, and the original drumming and percussion by LaVere’s longtime collaborator Shawn Zorn. Dickinson plays guitar on eight of the ten tracks. Even better, the LP on gold vinyl, is superquiet and, for an indie release, of refreshingly high quality in both mastering and pressing. And for old school believers in analog sound, it’s a nice touch that the album’s credits include the line: “Principal recordings made on magnetic tape.” ”

Congrats to all involved!
