Mastering for Morton Valence
Posted on April 4th, 2014

Back in 2009, I was listening to the Radcliffe and Maconie show when my ears pricked up at the track that was playing on my car radio as I drove back from my weekly game of 5-a-side football. It was a glorious, sumptuous arrangement - grand and luxurious, but with an unmistakable undercurrent of strangeness and melancholy. The track was the Single of the Week and turned out to be called "Chandelier" by Morton Valence. The accompanying album - Bob and Veronica Ride Again - was every bit as good as the single ("Hang it on the Wall" is one of the finest songs of the decade) and I was hooked. Anyway, cut to 2014 and by a strange series of coincidences too unlikely to describe, I now find myself mastering their excellent new album, "Left". The album is a collection of loose ends that the band never got around to tying up until now, but these songs gel together and are of a quality that that most bands would be proud of as a collection of 'A' sides. More news as the album nears release...
