SongCraft Presents 104: Songwriting with Turin Brakes


Indie band, Turin Brakes, showed up at our SxSW studios in Austin to subject themselves to our patented, “song-in-a-day” stress test! See how this awesome band and “Mark the Release Dubway” capture the musical magic in this marathon songwriting and production course!
You never know what’s going to happen when you book a top indie band like Turin Brakes to compose and produce a song –in-front of the cameras– in a single day! It’s a daunting challenge. However, like all the other courses in our entertaining “SongCraft Presents” Series, Ben Arthur and the band, along with the whole Dubway Mark the Release, really came up with the musical goods!

So yet again we filled our guerrilla, SxSW recording studio with all kinds of high-end mics, audio interfaces, instruments and cool software to get ready to rock. The band arrives… Cameras roll… Introductions are made and everybody gets down to the songwriting business at hand!
This “docutorial” is both an exploration of gun-to-the-head creativity and an audio recording marathon all wrapped into one. You get to witness a song idea being born and nurtured from its initial spark of inspiration to a completely realized song. Then, all along the way, you go to school on pro recording and production techniques as Mike Crehore and Al Houghton do their engineering and production magic both in Austin and back at the “real” studio for overdubs and mixing in New York City.

take great pride in offering unique and exciting new sample products, and so when we were approached by Gambia’s No. 1 Rated percussionist Musa M’Boob we simply couldn’t refuse.

Playing with his Father’s group from the age of 11, in 1985 he inherited the leadership of the band. His playing at festivals and musical events nationwide drew attention and acclaim to the degree that in 1988 the Gambian Ministry of Arts and Culture recognised Musa as the No. 1 Percussionist in the country.
Since 1990 alongside performing across the UK and Europe at many festivals including WOMAD and played on numerous albums including his own solo material, Musa has worked as a cultural ambassador promoting Gambian music internationally.

Using a wide selection from Musa’s collection of beautiful instruments including Conga, Saber, Djembe and Bongos, this pack bursts with African spirit and powerful rhythms combined with the incredible precision and lyricism only a Master Percussionist can provide making it suitable for all modern music productions.
