Thanks! I really appreciate that. And thanks for purchasing that's awesome! Yes, I'm quite proud of my brother's musical and recording talents.

 

All of his previous albums were released with physical CD options but as far as I know this album is only available digitally. FYI, you can download CD-quality lossless versions of the tracks through bandcamp if you've purchased the album.

 

Thanks again!

If he still has a copy of some of those older Cd's I'd be more than happy to purchase them from him :D see if he has a few lying around

Sure! You can get his two previous albums in CD form via Amazon. You can order the second most recent TaughtMe release "Lady" directly from Blake by purchasing from the third-party seller "Clumsy Congregation" here:

And you can get the album he released prior to that, "Arms as Traps", through Amazon itself:

Thanks again and I hope you enjoy them! Even if he weren't my brother I would very highly recommend this music to others.

 

Cheers

I probably should have clarified that, however, I was up for 40+ hours and wasn't really thinking.  Sorry for sparking the argument again. :redface: 

 

No worries. :smile: I think you'll find that the DT880 community here is pretty laid back. We don't mind discussing these kinds of topics from time to time because we generally don't go off on one another. It's a learning experience for everybody, and a chance for us all to get up on the soapbox and say our bit.

 

YouTube audio would definitely sound pretty bad, particularly if it were from years past, when I don't think it was offered above 96 kbps AAC. Currently I believe it tops out at 192 kbps AAC for 1080p and above source material.

Well I happen to like Indie, and this Indie ROots Genre sounds even better... actually it reminds me of "Post ROck"either way it sounds good. If he deicedes to make a Hard copy CD for the third album I'd love to buy it! I got those two just now

To be honest I had never heard of the genre "indie roots" before I saw Jay William Henderson's album featured in Magnet Magazine (BTW that was in reference to Jay's album not Blake's but his music could probably be considered indie roots as well). If you do like indie roots then do checkout Jay's album as well (co-recorded and co-produced by Blake and Jay). Its much more in the vane of "indie folk" than Blake's stuff is. As I said previously, its one of the best sounding records I've ever heard.

Thanks TD

 

Real credit needs to go to Dunu though.  Easy to get there when you're reviewing a product as good as the DN-1000.  One of my top finds for 2013.

The album was co-recorded and co-produced by my brother and Jay and I'll tell you what I told them: it is one of the best sounding records I have ever heard. I was overwhelmed with joy and pride to realize that Blake and Jay were capable of such a feat because I have sure heard a whole lot of amazing sounding albums over the years. ;) Here it is:

Thanks for this devhen - listening now.  Likely to hit purchase button very shortly.  Quality of the recording is excellent so far!

Deleted. Wrong thread. :(

@devhen:

 

Well, my 95 year-old aunt used to play banjo in younger days and once put out a cover version with two friends of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" for banjo, marimba and electronic piccolo. If you do a quick Google search...

 

Nah, just joshing. It's great that you're so proud of your brother. ;)

Agreed plus any music I like on my DT 880 is still technically on topic if discussed in this thread IMO
post #5938 of 10434

^ I agree! I think some occasional posts about music that sounds really awesome on the DT880s would be great! Then again... everything sounds good on the 880s. :D

post #5939 of 10434
I wouldn't say everything sounds good on the DT880's. When I need some diarrhea inducing, eyeball shaking, skull crushing bass, the DT880's don't quite make the grade... biggrin.gif

I agree, that describes my PRO 900s perfectly. :D Unfortunately it also makes them virtually unlistenable...
