North Brookfield, MA (June 29, 2007)–Gypsy punk rockers Gogol Bordello will be releasing a new album, Super Taranta, on July 10 via punk label Side One Dummy Records. The album was produced and engineered by Victor Van Vugt, with tracking and overdubs done at The Barn at Long View Farm.
The Barn is equipped with a Neve 8078 console and Studer A800 Mk III 24-track and A80 VUII 1/2″ 2-track machines, classic outboard equipment, and a 100′ x 38′ open multi-level barn loft for tracking. Additional tracking space can be found directly under the soundstage, in the 38′ x 28′ x 12′ North Room, and in the front tracking room, a sunlit semi-live 26′ x 32′ x 23′ performance area.
Ian Neill assisted producer/engineer Van Vugt in the Gogol Bordello tracking and overdubs sessions.
Long View Farm has a second studio in The Farmhouse, equipped with a Trident A Range console, Otari 24-track and Studer 2-track machines and large live room with a Baldwin Baby Grand. Long View is currently engaged in an ongoing project with the upstart website, UnsignedArtists.com, to produce audio/video content of up-and-coming artists in the studio. According to Long View studio manager Kelly Wohlford, the first session involved videotaping the artist, Alley, as she worked with the production team of Bonnie Milner and Danny Bernini.
Wohlford described, “Each stage of production was documented on video from Alley’s arrival, through pre-production and recording. Other industry heavy-weights were brought in to add their expertise to the mix: Will Calhoun of Living Colour played drums; Stich of Stich Productions, a popular Philadelphia beat-maker provided loops; Mark Baxter, renowned voice teacher, worked with the artist on vocals. All were interviewed by Ben Milner, host of the site, and those interviews will be included in the segment call A.I.R (artists in residence).”
Each month, Long View will be producing a different unsigned artist. So far, those artists include: guitarist Desiree Bassett, hip-hop artist J-Oh, and vocalist Channing LaBlanc.
