While reflecting on the sessions that took place throughout the year (and those booked into December) – we find ourselves overflowing with excitement and much anticipation in seeing those projects unleashed in 2016.
From Bluegrass to Rap to suspenseful film scoring and everything in-between, It’s been a busy year for the rural based recording studio located in North-Eastern Georgia.
“We aim to keep plugged in, warmed up and ready to mix into the new season.” said WJAY, chief engineer.
Thank you to all who visited with GFR in 200015, before and beyond.
For more information on Gypsy Farm’s extremely fair rates for technical audio assistance with multi-track, overdubbing and/or mixing your project in-house or on-location, be sure and check out the studio page or contact us!
Your participation is strongly encouraged as we summon the sounds of hell – beginning this Friday night at the Flicker Theatre in Athens, GA. The establishment is proud to welcome GF veterans Garett Hatch (and his one-man-band extraordinaire), The Shoal Creek Stranglers (performing a peculiar blend of various interest), Pine Tar Rage (Carolina Rock ‘n Roll quartet of souls) with Old Smokey (haunting the musical hairs off of you). 10pm / $5 / RSVP to the official event page

GF received a Memphis-Morning-Message informing that our sweet sister Erica Qualy (The VIGNETTES, Objectum Sexuals) has once again put together something fierce. We find a group, titled “FREDD VELVET” and they’ve wasted no time in recording and releasing a self-titled EP over a two-day period with the help of Hartle Road.
The band’s first release comes as an endearing sludge of steady-beat, neon-lit punk rock with plenty of auxiliary sounds which clang and tang to haunted organs that hover amid a well executed union of brass and axes. This 5-song EP hosts a collection of tracks that range from the comatose march of “Green Eyes” to the suggestive nature of “I Want To Look At My Rocks“. Clocking out right at around 10-minutes, the EP promises to be a pleasurable experience to all those familiar with the legendary history between Memphis, TN and independent punk rock music.
You can download the EP via bandcamp.
