TCM Mastering’s Ted Carfrae has just mastered Filip Herbst’s new album Radio Trash.

Singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Filip Herbst offers a unique voice in indie rock. His sound – from his musical roots in punk rock to his classical training as a guitarist, vocalist, and composer – is as colourful and multi-faceted as all of these influences put together.

Filip seeks to further blend the lines between classical and pop music with his progressive rock sound. His new album Radio Trash combines elements of psychedelic pop, progressive rock, new wave revival, and a touch of ethnic influence to take the listener on a head trip of adventurous chord progressions and impressionistic lyrics.

Ted also recently mastered Jesse D Monaghan’s debut album ‘JD’ which showcases both his skills as a guitarist and a songwriter.

Born and raised in Grass Valley, CA, Jesse cut his teeth on classical guitar starting at age 6. However, when he found his Dad’s vinyl LP collection and heard the strains of Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page, the lure of the electric had him hooked.

His melding of divergent styles from rock to roots, jazz to country, has coalesced into a solid instrumental guitar style that is immediately reminiscent of Andy Timmons and Joe Satriani. Even though George Lynch would be higher up on the list of actual influences, the ‘guitar as vocal’ approach definitely has a sonic reference to the aforementioned stars.

J D Monaghan’s Debut Album.

All songs were penned and executed by Jesse. Only 2 tracks had any outside input (Funk Daddy and Sunset Sky) with the rest encompassing Jesse’s guitar prowess and technical skills behind the control board with his drums being built, sometimes from single drum hits, into a solid bedrock of ‘in the pocket’ rock.

While the song ‘Slipping Away’ is indicative of Jesse’s current stylistic approach, the album is reflective of Jesse’s journey from stellar sideman in California to solid frontman in Austin, Texas.

We can only look forward to Jesse’s future releases to see where he will take the music with a full band and broader scope to his music.
