Photo shoot with Modern Front

modern-sm

Thanks to the guys from Modern Front for taking some time to pose for us in the trusty ol’ industrial district of Gainesville, Georgia on January 2nd. These guys have a string Americana rock sound and we were introduced to them by Dread Zeppelin’s Carl Jah who recently pitched in on a session with them. We like these cats a lot, and encourage you to check-check-check them out!¬†And thanks to Blackstar Amplification for the Artist 30 amp seen here!

Cait Brennan to drop Debutante on January 22

caitbrennan-debutante300dpi

Heads up RUST readers we have an off-the-radar artist about to release their debut album and we think y’all should know about it. This songwriting multi-instrumentalist boasts a five-octave rock voice and has played every note on her own home recordings, but her days of secret creativity came to an end when production wunderkind Fernando Perdomo (Linda Perhacs, Emitt Rhodes, Beck, Fiona Apple, Jakob Dylan and many others) came on board to help make Debutante ready for a global audience. Supported by a few friends, and a successful Kickstarter campaign to get cd’s made, Cait Brennan’s music is as powerful and individual as she is, and Debutante is an example of an artist putting everything they have into their work.

And kudos for the fun album cover ideas!

Recorded with a Lewitt MTP 440 DM microphone on the amp and a Lewitt LCT 550 mic on the room. Stay tuned for more demo’s of this amp coming soon!
