This episode will round out the Five Starr Sound Labs sessions in Highland Park, California; I want to reiterate how gracious it was of Juan Alderete to invite us into his studio. We are very thankful for that. Juan has a multitude of quality videos over at pedalsandeffects.com—premium content abounds.
In walks Nick Reinhart. Nick starts constructing a dystopian infrastructure of noise almost before we can get our cameras on. Using his Super-Sonic, Nick lined up in varying order: the Recovery Effects Bad Comrade, Small Sound Big Sound Buzzz, Red Panda Particle, Earthquaker Devices Bit Commander and Rainbow Machine, Old Blood Noise Endeavors Procession, Line 6 DL4, and Digitech Whammy. Nick's musical skill is matched by his charm and wit. Before we know it everyone in the room is fully engaged in a somewhat depthy dissection of the definition of Riff. Thanks again to Nick Reinhart, and be sure to check out the multitude of quality acts he's involved in, including but not limited to, Tera Melos, Death Grips, and Big Walnuts Yonder.
