A new take on a rare tube-classic
In the April 2021 installment of A Family of…Compared, we took a look at the Mojave MA Series of microphones showcasing the condenser creations of David Royer. Like the MA-1000DS (reviewed October 2017), some are David’s refinement of classic vintage designs like, in that case, the ELA M 250. This month we are looking at a flavorful new spin on the rare, coveted Sony C37a, reimagined as the Mojave MA-37.
Earthquakes and Butterflies:
The songs and sounds of Lucius’ Second Nature
Second Nature is the latest album from Lucius. The band was formed in 2007 by vocalists Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe when the two met at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. The band’s unique sound was fully realized with the addition of guitarist Peter Lalish, drummer/producer Dan Molad and Andrew Burri, who left the band in 2017. Jess and Holly’s intertwined vocals are central to the Lucius sound moving as one in perfectly phrased unison and beautifully layered harmonies.
