After many many years, the Stone Roses have released some new material. Can their jangle-indie win new fans in the era on the soft synth, or will this just be a nostalgia trip for middle aged die-hards? Classic Roses production with a heap of reverb on Ian Brown’s wandering vocals, 90s style vocal harmonies and catchy riff driven guitar parts.

Ever the masters of the sonic palette, Radiohead have released some incredible tracks this year including today’s featured track, Burn the Witch. A really interesting production including semi-spiccato strings, classic Thom Yorke reverb soaked vocals, and lo-fi drums. (Bonus points for the super disturbing Trumpton-esque video!)

The folks at Future Music have put together a nice little exploration of this common production technique. Use it to highlight particular words or phrases, smooth a transition, or create extreme ghostly effects. Remember though, overuse of techniques like this can ruin a piece, so use sparingly for maximum impact!
