New music available now, tell us what you think.

“Once you start listening to Spiro and how it’s composed you hear elements of systems music, people like Steve Reich, Phillip Glass, dance music and all sorts of musical influences are woven into this very contemporary music.”

So said Peter Gabriel about this month’s album. Some of our albums are more challenging than others but there was a joyfullness to Spiro’s music that we couldn’t resist. They sound just as good through your speakers as they do playing live and none of their energy has been lost in this vibrant recording.

They have some live shows coming up later in the year, including some festivals, which are listed on their website.

Let us know what you thought of Live in Box here.

    Hi Shaun,

    Yes, I understand the predicament re: DVD’s. However, I still believe that you should offer each recording at its best available native bit and sample rate with no conversions applied! And indicate which ones are at the native rate. Then, if you need to add a 48k version of a 44.1k master (for example), that’s cool. At least those who aren’t concerned about DVD compatibility won’t be penalized by the conversion.

    Pro Tools ‘Tweakhead’ settings are quite good, but they aren’t inaudible on good monitoring equipment.

    –Bill
