JA_About

Engineer

At Jonestown Audio, the head engineer is one Mitchell Lah. I graduated from JMC Academy upon completing a Bachelor Degree in Audio Engineering and Sound Production. After doing some freelance work throughout Melbourne, recording and mixing music from Jazz,
Blues and Orchestral, I travelled to Vancouver for a few months where I did some live work in the local pubs. After deciding that studio work was my one passion I decided to move back to Australia and build my own studio. Thus Jonestown Audio was born.

JA_Services_01Process


Clients (Bands, artists, voice over etc) can choose a variety of ways to get their audio tracks (Single track, EP, album etc) to me – via email, through the post or upload them to a private dropdox. Throughout the whole process constant communication with you, the client, is paramount, to ensure that your project is all that it can be.


JA_Services_02Please Email me for the dropbox link

Prior to any editing or mixing I will have a chat with you to find out your artistic visions for your project. Once I have received the audio tracks, I will take care of any editing that needs to be done and then begin to the mix and remove any unnecessary or unwarranted elements. Upon completion of the technical aspect of mixing, the artistic mixing begins. Throughout the mixing process, I will offer and invite ‘listening points’; whereupon I will upload a 40 second sample for you to listen to, to make sure that your artistic vision is translated. If you like what you hear, I will send you the entire track or album in the format that you choose. If you don’t like what you hear, I will tweak based on your feedback until you are completely happy.

Pond – Man, It Feels Like Space Again (2015)

Please note – This information was taken from www.recordstore.co.uk

On January 26th, Tame Impala offshoot Pond will release their new album, Man It Feels Like Space Again. The nine-track effort is the psych rock outfit’s sixth LP to date and follows last year’s Hobo Rocket.

Man It Feels Like Space Again lives up to the inherent wonder in its title, a sweeping collection of warm, warped psychedelic gems. It brings to mind the work of The Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, mid-’70s Lennon, MGMT, Todd Rundgren, Supergrass and any number of other genre-hopping sonic/space-explorers.

“The album covers an extraordinary amount of ground in its 45 minutes. Opener ‘Waiting Around For Grace’ sounds like an FM pop hit beamed in from a nearby planet, all wonky propulsion and giddy hooks – the perfect opening blast. ‘Elvis’s Flaming Star’ stomps like a ’70s glam band coached by Bowie, before collapsing into and out of a mid-tune daydream.

Elsewhere on the record there are blissed-out ballads (‘Sitting Up On Our Crane’, ‘Holding Out For You’), twisted, futuristic raves (‘Zond’), lysergic epics drenched in reverb (‘Heroic Shart’), and the gorgeous 6/8 classic ‘Medicine Hat’. By the time you hit the finale: the out-of-control, ever-shifting eight-minute title track, it definitely feels like space… again, man.

Mystic Braves – A psych band out of LA

What are you listening to right now? I cannot stop listening to a band out of LA by the name of – Mystic Braves.

Julian Ducatenzeiler (guitar & vocals), Tony Malacara (bass & vocals), Shane Stotsenberg (guitar & vocals),
Cameron Gartung (drums), Ignacio Gonzalez (organ/tambourine) melt together the sounds of the psychedelic rock n roll music of the 60′s with a fresh take on the scene. These lads not only look the part, but they have the musical knowledge, skill and vibe to back it up. They have mastered their sound to a tee and I just cannot get enough of their tunes.

Check them out – http://www.mysticbraves.com/
