Album Description

Recording the tracks for what would become Mylab's self-titled debut was also a communal experience, as Wayne and Tucker first got their hands dirty at Horvitz's Other Room studio in Seattle, then shifted over to Martine's own Seattle studio, Flora, for the initial round of overdubbing. The final round of Mylab sessions were held just last summer at Trillium Lane Studios, located in the midst of a pastoral 15-acre spread on Bainbridge Island in Washington. In the end, Horvitz and Martine's ability to assemble and mix such an incredibly diverse range of pop, rock, jazz, folk, urban, bluegrass, traditional and alternative artists produced the kind of adventurous sonic orchestra that would have made the late, great Sun-Ra proud. The proof, of course, is in the music. From the Henry Mancini-esque bounce of the album opener, "Pop Client" to the Chuck Berry-beat of "Land Trust Picnic" or the spooky, Pet Sounds meets industrial NIN flavor of "Earthbound," Mylab is clearly not afraid to cross-over — and transcend — any schools of music.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
