My most recent duo cd "Sub Textural" is available HERE to buy! Only 300 ever pressed!
On their fifth release (and first since 2014), longtime musical partners/former (?) Spongetones Jamie Hoover and Steve Stoeckel have compiled half a dozen new tracks, “created over a period of several years, in different situations, different states of mind,” according to the back cover blurb. There are echoes of XTC, some beat-heavy psychedelia, early ‘70s McCartney, Bob Lind-like folk pop (Hoover’s worked with Lind in the past), and, of course, a bit of Beatles (on the stripped down “Cry”). Hoover and Stoeckel still harmonize wonderfully and aren’t afraid to explore new musical territories on Sub Textural, and the production is interestingly dense and…well, textured. Perhaps the best of their EPs so far. Grade: A- John Borack-Goldmine Magazine
I always have many musical efforts going on-playing shows, doing various recording projects, record production, and recording instruction. Please follow and "like" my Facebook Business page:
Please don't hesitate to contact me about any of these matters. I return all of my emails. I look forward to hearing from you!
quote from Bob Lind...
Jamie "is sadly underrated as a producer, an arranger and particularly as a bass player. He produced my best album, “Finding You Again.” He understood my music, and he had the wherewithal to make the songs work. I can still listen to it and feel moved and amazed at what he did with those songs. Every one of them works, and there’s nothing — at least very, very little — that I would change. What’s more, he cut six more tunes with me that will be on my new CD, and all of them stand up to anything else I’ve recorded.”
