The basic story 

Over the years, Weathervane’s Brian McTear and Engineer Matt Poirier have worked together on many projects outside of Weathervane recordings. In the spirit of supporting this community and keeping us all sane, several artists have donated tracks for Weathervane remix subscribers. Over the next few months we’ll drop new multitracks for you to download, inspect, and remix at your discretion. Make them as like or unlike the original as you so desire, then share your work in the comments at the bottom of the page. It’s the least we could do for everyone who is helping us stay afloat through this unprecedented time. While we may be hunkered down at home, we can still make music together.

MIGHTY JOE CASTRO

AND THE GRAVAMEN

Brian and Joe have known each other for years (back to when he mixed Joe's old band The Situation in... the early 2000's?) It was a wonderfully satisfying experience to dial in the best process for capturing this record as simply and "live" as possible. See links to the album, videos, and if you have time, check out Joe's incredible artwork.

Mt. vengeance

Mt Vengeance is a Philadelphia rock trio first formed in 2016 out of the ashes of Philly blue collar rock royalty. Singer/guitarist Rich Fravel was in bands like Uptown Bones, Latimer, Ashtabula, and Blue. Brian Campbell (bass) was in Philly 80s punk legends The Electric Love Muffin and is currently also in Poppy. Nicky Santore played drums in Valsalva and Providence, RI noise rock band Glory Hole in the early 90s.

poppy 600x600

poppy

Poppy were part of the tail end of a previous generation of bands, before Brian arrived in Philadelphia. At first glance they almost pass for normal folks, doing normal things and living normal lives. But don't be fooled: the "punk" at the core of Poppy is indelible, from Brian's time with Philly punk legends The Electric Love Muffin, to Kate's Patti Smith influenced vocal poetry, and blisteringly awesome Hi-Watt guitar sound.

bedolina square 600x600

Bedolina

Bedolina is a collaborative indie project based in Philadelphia. Brian McTear and Matt Poirier have worked with Ken Gould on numerous recordings over the past year, and a full album is in the works. What started as fairly conventional studio recording has by necessity evolved into a remote setup, more electronic in approach. The results feature elements of both approaches with one constant, deference to the song itself.

hauntress 600x600

Hauntress

 

Hauntress is a metal inspired power trio from Philadelphia featuring the songs and guitar work of Kevin Cullen Hart. Brian and Miner Street engineer Matt Poirier began working with them back in 2018, and more recently, Matt's taken the helm as both producer and engineer, which was the arrangement for their contribution here.

Robots In The Rain

New holiday songs are rare, and Halloween songs, even more so! This is the first Recorders Club release of a song produced by a Weathervane subscriber. Robots in the Rain is the work of Anthony Armenta, a long time Weathervane supporter. (Anthony was the Executive Producer for the Shaking Through Leah Thomas episode). He's been building a small but impressive home studio for his uniquely sparse recordings. This track is bizarre, and it comes with a video. Enjoy!

far pines

 

Kevin Manning of Far Pines met engineer Matt Poirier at a Weathervane fundraiser. He immediately asked if they could record together some day. Their sessions have evolved into something inspiring. No rules or preconceptions, just one idea thoughtfully added to the next. The results capture Kevin's personal story with honesty, beauty, and integrity.

Brother Martin

Dan Espie and Maria Mirenzi introduced their eclectic project Brother Martin to Brian in early 2019. Their songwriting, combined with truly exceptional musicianship produced an impressive depth of style, meaningful songs, and, frankly, a whole set of recording sessions that were incredibly fun and satisfying. This music is challenging, but very worth it!

Wake up and

smell the sun

This recording was made 90% at home through the pandemic. John recorded vocals and guitar at home. Patrick Berkery (War on Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) recorded drums in his basement in South Philly while Brian and Amy did most other things at their home and in the studio. Johns a real-life poet - the best lyrics I have heard in ages, despite otherwise leading a "normal life" in practically every other way. This was a life affirming experience, much needed in the darkest of times.
