We’re in the process of updating the website with a full rebuild in an effort to keep up with the many changes and improvements at ICF. Here are a few recent things we’ve done. More to come soon!
BELCURVE – Night Time (EP)
Video for Hot Mess
This EP was a few years in the making, starting with tracks laid down at The Bubble with Frenchie Smith producing, followed by more tracks from Sweetheart Studio with Seth Gibbs producing, and wrapping up with retracks, overdubs, new performances and production, mixing and mastering at ICF. It’s pretty great, and has started this band down the road to a very cohesive, unique sound. Our late friend John Winsor is featured on guitar and upright bass on most of the tracks on this EP. A kind heart and prodigious talent gone far too soon, John is deeply missed by the entire Austin music community.
Jason has been sending me incredible, complex tracks of his wild, schizophrenic compositions. I’ve been mixing them. These sprawling works will still get stuck in your head much like any 3 minute pop tune, but bigger.
JOSH ELDRIDGE – Lucky Man
The lyrics for this song were written by Matt’s cousin Josh, who’s been fighting cancer for a while now. Matt and a few friends decided to turn the lyrics into a rock ‘n roll meets country tune that’s pretty catchy, if we do say so ourselves.
Tyler Stuckey wrote the chords and sang, Jason Caviola played lead and rhythm guitar, Tyler Speicher played rhythm guitar, Michael Bahan played drums, Matt Parmenter played bass, keys, backing vocals, and he also produced, mixed and mastered the track.
A song from the re-recording of their first album, this was tracked at ICF and mixed by the mighty Mike Major
Here’s “Everything Louder Than Everything Else”, my favorite, most elaborate and longest song from “We Are All Where We Belong”, which was recorded and produced at ICF and mixed by the legendary Tim Palmer.
From the previous EP, “Songs For Staying In”, this is the opening track, which got a lot of radio play in Texas, and placement on a national commercial for Triscuit. This was tracked and mixed at Ice Cream Factory Studio.
Quiet Company also recorded a series of covers. Here are a few favorites from the “Other People’s Hits” EP. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Ice Cream Factory Studio.
ETHAN DURELLE – 090608
Ethan Durelle chose to record their final studio effort with Ice Cream Factory Studio in 2011. It’s an album I’m particularly proud of both in the final product, and in the fact that it could have been a logistical nightmare but ended up coming together very smoothly. The members of Ethan Durelle live in different cities around Texas (and one in Boston) and were putting together this album as the balance to their final performance DVD. Each member had to come in separately, lay down their tracks, then go back to their home city and give comments on mixes via a Google doc. Fortunately, everyone was savvy and articulate enough to make the process quick and painless, and the proof is in the tracks. Check ’em.
