TRANSDUCER EP – Black Vinyl
Rival Waves issues their debut album, TRANSDUCER, on 140-gram black vinyl. The album is mixed by JR Taylor and Louie Lino and mastered specifically for vinyl, by Grammy Award-nominated engineer Jerry Tubb.
On TRANSDUCER, Rival Waves team up with Producer JR Taylor for a spirited collection of songs highlighted by amazing performances by members of Pearl Jam (Jack Irons), Porno For Pyros (Martyn Lenoble), Alanis Morrissette (Nick Lashley), Linkin Park (Scott Koziol), Nine Inch Nails (Teddy Kumpel), and Hans Zimmer Orchestra (Satnam Ramgotra).
TRANSDUCER also serves to establish a mainstream rock sonic template for the band. Songwriter/vocalist Joel De La Garza, brings fully fleshed out songs into the studio, while allowing the energy and lyrically earnest themes, ranging from the extremely personal to the globally socio-political, of the songs to provide a punk and alternative slant.
