Best Affordable Studio in Which to Record Your Masterpiece (2008)


Frankly, only chowderheads and vain purists still fight the lame-o "tape vs. digital" battle. At this point, who gives a blip, so long as it sounds right for what you're doing? THE FORT—deep in post-slum Bushwick—has excellent analog and state-of-the-art computer equipment (plus heavenly acoustics), so you can rock out on either. Or both, if you like—which I do. And best of all, proprietor "Handsome Jim" Bentley is young (under 30), hungry (read: He'll negotiate an excellent rate), and the possessor of two of the best ears in the biz. He's a total sweetheart too.
