New York City’s keygrip is proud to announce the release of their debut EP vis-Ã -vis on July 28, 2009 on RRMC Recordings. Led by songwriter Michael Di Lalla, the music is melodic Brit-pop with hints of 80’s influence and modern day eclectic indie-rock leanings. The writing is accessible, yet edgy and heartfelt.
Self produced by Di Lalla with the bulk of the mixing done by Scott Solter (Spoon, St. Vincent, Pattern Is Movement) at John Vanderslice’s indie-heaven Tiny Telephone studios in San Francisco, vis-Ã -vis is full of tranquil melodies, hypnotic grooves and a flowing, visceral dynamic. Five out of the seven songs on the EP were recorded mixed and mastered the old-fashioned way, to analog tape, with no computers involved in the entire process.
