RIP Reflection Sound recording. A Charlotte treasure lost.
R.E.M. cut 1983’s “Murmur” and 1984’s “Reckoning” at Reflection’s Central Avenue location, where the studio has resided since the early 1970s. Others who recorded there include The Eagles’ Glenn Frey and Joe Walsh, Joe Cocker, Buddy Guy, Aaron Neville, the Dixie Chicks, Hootie & The Blowfish, Mary J. Blige, Ben Folds Five, Don Dixon, and Southern Culture on the Skids. #progress #needmorecondos

Oh man, RIP.

"There is a stubbornness that causes Things Change to wane in its second half, and that’s Late Bloomer remembering their current situation: they’re a newish indie band in a relatively marooned indie rock locale (Charlotte) with a regrettable name knocking around in small shows."

Pitchfork review of Late Bloomer's new album Things Change.

Ouch. This is contained in a mostly positive review (7.0), but the above excerpt seemed harsh, both on the band and Charlotte.

Ryan Adams - “Gimme Something Good”

Details on the upcoming self-titled album here.

And as it turns out, that song is the opener on Adams’s new album, a self-titled and self-produced LP that Adams recorded at his own Pax-Am Studios in Los Angeles.
