  • It’s probably no secret that Audioconfusion is one of my favorite studios in town and that Jalipaz is one of my favorite producers/engineers–I’m betting a good 33% of the bands I have written about over the last six years of covering local music have recorded with him at that studio. One thing is for sure, I’m continually surprised by the diversity of sounds he produces and the results he manages to get from bands of all genres, all styles and manner of music. I had been writing about local music for over a year before I had ever heard of...

They made their live debut last month closing...
