Submodern Audio: Elmwood Era Records

As of March 31, 2020 we have officially relocated (more about that later).

While the world is in isolation, we are slowly working to get our new location up and running (while maintaining the latest standards in social distancing).

In the meantime, here’s a look back at the records we made at the Elmwood Ave location!

Elmwood Era Records
July 2017 – March 2020

The first record we made in the new location (Nov 2017 and Nov 2018). I helped release this album on subModern Records  as a CD and cassette.

Released in March 2020, this was the second record we did at Elmwood (January 2018-September 2019).

I released this on on cassette, you can still stream it from their website (May 2018).

Spooky, world ending music, maybe more appropriate than ever. Summer 2018.

MY BAND! We self released this cassette EP in October 2018. We’re still finishing up a full length follow up.

This was a fun and epic album to make – I had the privilege of working very closely with Marios (pre-social distancing) on many long mixing / production sessions (May 2018-February 2019).

This record brought us from winter 2019 into spring time, and was a joy to record on quiet Sunday mornings.

This record begin in Vermont and finished at subModern. In February I packed the 388  (tape recorder) and a few peripherals into my partner’s car and drove to Tom’s mountain-side home.  We finished during spring at subModern Audio on Elmwood and it was released at the end of summer 2019. BONUS: I helped release this on reel to reel (contact me if you want to get one, there are a few left!)

This record has lots of gems on it, and was how I spent much of the summer of 2019. Reminds me of Dire Straits meets the Meat Puppets.

We were lucky to work on many other recordings, some are yet unreleased, still being mixed, etc – some were demos, all were fun.

In the summer of 2018 we started the subModern Live Series, which you can listen to here – we will be resuming the live series this month, please get in touch if you’d like to be on the show.

Hope you’re all staying healthy and safe!

I am trying to stay optimistic for the rest of this turd of a year,

Andy / subModern Audio / the Bendays / Pixels / Olneyville, USA! etc.
