Video: Geeking out with Because Sound Matters

The folks at Because Sound Matters (the vinyl arm of Warner Brothers) are currently taking a five part video stroll through Bernie Grundman's mastering studio. The first two parts are up, and it's an interesting look inside Grundman's bag of tricks.

The Because Sound Matters blog also features a number of videos "unboxing" their latest vinyl releases, including the newish Green Day "Ultimate" 7" Singles Box Set, which was released in September.  The box set features 21 (!!!) Green Day singles, packaged together for the first time.  Check it out for yourself, and peep the track listing here:

As long as we're talking vinyl, here's a special shout out to my good pal Judd, who recently posted an excellent write-up at The 6149 regarding Lou Reed's classic New York album.

Enjoy!

    Matt: Thanks for the heads up on Because Sound Matters. My Neil Young limited edition 4 LP set came from them. I never really looked into the site before. Glad you led me to it…because there is some great stuff on there.

    They have a cool “terms” section on there. Honestly, I had no idea what made 180 gram vinyl better than 120 gram vinyl…now I do:

    “A heavier weight record is thicker and therefore allows for deeper grooves and more dynamic mastering. Since the vinyl is heavier- it is typically better for tracking. The 180gram record is usually flatter and quieter than a regular weight record.”

    The new White Stripes live album is coming out on a 2 LP set. That is going on my shopping list.

    Thx for the shout on the “New York” write up. That album kills.
