Skidmore alum Emily Lazar, chief mastering engineer at New York studio The Lodge, has been nominated for a Grammy for her work on the album Wasting Light by Guitar Hero band Foo Fighters. The album has been nominated in six categories, including Album of the Year, and apparently it was recorded completely analog, meaning no computers were used.
I didn’t realize the Foo Fighters were still producing music, but that’s pretty cool! That means we’re all only like three degrees separated from Kurt Cobain.
In other news, you now have a reason to watch/care about the Grammys.
