Live From SugarHill Studios – Episode 17

From SugarHill’s site:

Prog-math rockers Motion Turns It On & the Dublin-based Autumn Owls are the musical guests. Community guest and ‘audience of one’ is Ruben Dominguez, a founding member of rock group Toho Ehio and former freelance journalist for local rag Thorazine.

With this episode LFSH welcomes producer Gina Miller as the new co-host alongside award-winning record producer, Dan Workman.

Autumn Owls are a four-piece post rock-meets-folk band from Dublin. The band was one of the 10 selected by Hot Press to represent Ireland in the New York Tisch School of Arts 2007 Music Video Project. The song selected, went on to feature on Dave Fanning’s television program The Last Broadcast. After two EP releases, they began work with acclaimed producer Ciaran Bradshaw of Westland Studios. The band was nominated in the newcomer category “Hope for 2009 Award” in the Meteor Irish Music Awards. At the time of this filming Autumn Owls are currently recording their debut album and on tour in the U.S. Behind every great band lies a story waiting to be told.

For Houston-based Motion Turns It On, a local trio that roller coaster ride began, as stories of this nature often do, with misguided youth living in the suburbs. Manufactured living leads young ones to the kind of restlessness that occasionally sparks dormant creativity. MTIO formed in 2004 and the original members have transformed their vision into something truly cutting edge. Their stunning debut E.P. entitled Rima garnered rave reviews from Houston Calling to Amplifier Magazine. Now MTIO is a seasoned band with a new album entitled Kaledioscopic Equinox and a remarkable live performance thats been called schizophrenic, kinetic and controlled frenzy.
