Mechanical River, brainchild of South Carolina native Joel Hamilton, is a brand new take on the lo-fi folk sound popularized by bands like Neutral Milk Hotel. Hamilton’s sound isn’t the only unique element to his approach; his music is driven by a customized microphone housed inside of a repurposed baseball helmet.
We jumped at the opportunity to work with this exciting new band at Electric Lady Studios in New York City. Take a look and a listen, and keep an eye out for their debut record coming soon!
‘Buzzsessions’ is an original series of live music videos produced by The Wild Honey Pie. With each new episode, we capture footage of our favorite bands as they record alternate studio-quality versions of their songs.
