Good morning faggotrons. Ask someone recording at Steve Albini's studio anything.
Dunno what's wrong with Tweez production wise, sounds fine to me. I haven't listened to a lot of Slint so i don't really know.
His rate is pretty affordable. We all work regular day jobs and could afford to fly here and pay for everything. He's engineering.
They only have two albums, and while their second is literally /mu/core, the first was bad alone from the composition, and the awful production made it worse.
Listen to the whole thing, it sounds incredibly sterile and thin.
Some of the members of Slint were from Squirrel Bait actually, so that comparison is incredibly accurate.
But it's so damn quiet, I have to turn the volume up to the max to hear anything. Albini's mixing back then was waay too soft, even on Big Black's records.
Yeh, I'm listening more and I think it's pretty bad. There's a lot involved in making an album sound good that isn't just about the producer. If the composition or performance is bad then it's going to sound like shit no matter how much you tweak the sound. Your producer has to be enjoying it to really help you get the sound you want. If i get a chance I'll ask him about it today.

His modern work sounds infinitely better, just compare the original version of Atomizer and the remaster.
Admittedly the compositions suck dick (how they managed to make something on the calibre of Spiderland in the span of 2 years is beyond me) but the production just makes it so, so much worse.
