Drop Down to My Place
Posted 27 April 2008, 10:06 by The Kennel
Introducing the Kennel Jukebox, powered by the nifty Easylistener music player. It’s over there on the left.
Our first selection is The Kennel’s official theme song: “Drop Down to My Place” by the Strangers (King, 1954), a selection from Hunky Dory: King Vocal Groups Volume 3 , released in 2005 on UK-based Ace Records. It’s a fantastic CD, well worth the import price.
Following that, “Atlantic Dub”, a mix by Prince Polo of “An Ocean Part Deux” from A Moveable Feast by The Sharp Things.
We’ll be adding new songs regularly—tracks recorded at The Kennel and other things we think you should hear—so stop back often.
“The Kennel is a perfect spot for capturing the excitement and immediacy of a live sound. With lots of analog gear the vibe in this sweet Bushwick room is full of texture and warmth — both sonically and personally. Billy, the engineer and also a great producer, is really sensitive to listening for that magic moment and focusing everyone in the room towards it. You’ll leave happy!“
