Producer Matthew Kaufman brought alt-rocker Matt Jaffe into East Bay Recorders to get down tracks for the singer/songwriters “California’s Burning” release.
Engineered by Michael Rosen, the dates were filled with cool moments that kept the entire team on their toes.
“Matthew is a first take producer, which is old school and cool,” Rosen recalls. “He’s got this trick where he makes the drummer play without cymbals on the first run. Then we’d go back and overdub the crashes and other stuff. It kept the tracks super clean. I don’t do that with anybody else, so that’s interesting.”
“California’s Burning” came out on September 14, 2018
