Freedy Johnston

Neon Repairman is Freedy's newest offering, a 10 song gem of an album recorded and finialized late 2014.  Classic Freedy-styled songs come to the forefront in this honest, inspiring and conceptually lucid album.  Presented as decievingly simple yet structurally complex arrangements, the album varies from barebones guitar and voice to lush pop soundscapes that stick in your consciousness and will have you singing the songs upon first listen.  Partially crowdfunded via a very successful pledgemusic.com campaign, the album was self-produced by Freedy; partially engineered and entirely mixed at DNA by Mark Whitcomb.

At The Door

The Drain - At The Door album art
artist/client: 
The Drain

Rising from the ashes of Madison art-rock bands including Faghat and The Facesteak, The Drain deliver hard-driving and mind-bending post-punk drawing on influences ranging from Joy Division and The Cure to Sonic Youth and The Pixies.

Their first full-length album, At The Door, took over two years of hard work to complete, and it's worth the wait. The band delivers a muscular guitar sound with lots of melodic bass lines, pounding drums, and emotional vocals. At The Door was recorded, mixed, and mastered at DNA Studios by Mark Whitcomb.
