Shameless Tuesdays: Livre 109 | Elk City

Deep within Montclair, New Jersey resides Elk City, a band who weave dreams into cool melodies. Since the turn of the century, drummer/producer Ray Ketchem and vocalist/artist Renée LoBue have delivered a laid-back sound that knows how to recharge the listeners' batteries. Their sixth and latest album Above the Water keeps the feelings afloat, especially in the jamming "Your Time Doesn't Exist" and the pounding "Don't You Wanna Try"! Now seeking land after being adrift, Elk City have waved down for us this week's Shameless Tuesdays!

Here's what Elk City has to say about this week's playlist:

This is a Magic Door Recording playlist. Elk City records at the Montclair, New Jersey studio known as Magic Door Recording. We are lucky to create our music in an environment surrounded by state-of-the-art recording equipment.

Founded in 2017 by Ray Ketchem, Magic Door Recording was quickly discovered by producers such as David Bendeth (Paramore, Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach) and indie legends Guided By Voices, who have recorded portions of 9 critically acclaimed albums at the studio.

Every song on our playlist was recorded, mixed or mastered at Magic Door. In many cases we’ve even created the cover artwork - and with our label, we’ve released many of the featured songs.

Magic Door Recording has become a one-stop-shop for artists looking to create and release a finished product. Give a listen. Experience our little corner of the world. We think it's Magic.
