ARTIST / BAND: CHRIS WALLA
SONG (MP3): SING AGAIN
ALBUM: Field Manual
FILE UNDER: Indie / Experimental
INFO: Known both as the guitarist/producer in Death Cab for Cutie and as an in-demand producer of other independent-minded artists (Tegan & Sara, Decemberists), Walla brings a refined aesthetic and melodic ear to everything he involves himself in. Walla's past recordings of his own songs (occasionally made available online under the name Martin Youth Auxiliary) have mostly been quickly-recorded lo-fi sketches unintended for widespread release. His upcoming release, titled field manual, represents the first time his own songs have been given the studio attention and thought-out approach to recording for which he is in such demand by others.
