Recordin' in the years w/ Steve Roche


As an avid listener of Unlisted, I assume you love the theme song.

Well, I have good news for you. You can now hear it with vocals.

It’s from a studio project called Northeast Regional. I recorded the music with some friends in April 2019. We released a 6-song EP this August and I hope you check it out and enjoy it. I say it sounds like a harder Lemonheads.

To help celebrate the release, I interviewed the man who recorded the music.

Steve Roche runs Permanent Hearing Damage, a recording studio in Philadelphia, PA. He has played in a number of bands, including but not limited to Off Minor, Amateur Party, and None But Equals.

We had a fun, lengthy conversation. I ended up editing out about 15 minutes related to Off Minor and stuff “back in the day” (once you start debating whether The Crownhate Ruin or Regulator Watts is better, you’ve gone too deep) but I did leave one Easter Egg in the recording.

We talk about recording, prepping a project, when to step in as an engineer, and where individuals interested in home recording can start as the COVID-19 pandemic continues. We even got to talk briefly about healthcare! Steve at one point helped run a health clinic.

Speaking of healthcare, be sure to check out A Health Podyssey from Health Affairs.

Thanks and enjoy.
