BROOKLINE FALLS

Nocturne - BROOKLINE FALLS
00:0000:00
featuring Ian Axel of A Great Big World recorded at Homebrew Studio NJ

This was a great young pop rock band. We worked all summer on what I hoped would be their first record. Very talented guys...featuring platinum selling artist Ian Axel of current "A Great Big World" fame.

THE DARK BROTHERS

"Abby"

Abby - THE DARK BROTHERS
00:0000:00
recorded and mixed by Kevin Lacatena at Homebrew Studio a NJ recording studio

Think the Replacements meet country junkie*. This record was recorded live except for vocal/misc. dubs & has a nice edge.


*If Johnny Thunders grew up in Texas he might've sounded like this.

engineered & mixed by Kevin Lacatena at Homebrew Studio | a NJ recording, mix and mastering facility

Here's one from their full length on TKO Records. I think it tears the original Cars version (which was great) a new one!

I had the opportunity to master a bunch of songs for the upcoming indie film "Rock Story" & it's soundtrack. Among the tracks were this great one and a few written by Sean McNabb of Dokken/Quiet Riot/Sons of Anarchy and Dan Smith of Shirk Circus.

This was part of a very fun Sunday afternoon jazz improv session. Drums, bass, elec piano and two saxes. I tracked it live here in the studio and its currently being edited down to LP length by Mike Roze. I'll be mixing and mastering for future release after that.

HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS

"Cherry Highway"

Cherry Highway - HIGH SCHOOL SWEETHEARTS
00:0000:00
Recorded and mixed by Kevin Lacatena at Homebrew Studio | a NJ recording studio

We actually recorded this a few years before it came out. Little Steven (of Springsteen & Sopranos fame) really digs them & played this song regularly on his

radio show. He even showed up at one of their Maxwells gigs...good stuff. Great Stonesy sounding guitar.
