Success Story: Stacks of Wax Found a Diamond in the Rough


Stacks of Wax Production is a fully functional audio production, mixing, and mastering operation. Stacks of Wax is situated in NYC with other locations in Westchester, CT, and Woodstock. Stacks of Wax General Manager Evan Feist had been a part of Music Xray for sometime now, using our service to find artists to critique, songs to mix, to promote and more.

Evan had been enjoying his Music Xray experience, esp. when he found a metaphorical diamond among the submissions he received recently:

As I was going through the day’s submissions to my various dropboxes, I found it: that metaphorical diamond in the rough. Capital Grey had sent me their track "Paint This Town" and I was stunned. It opens with a lo-fi 4 count on a closed hi hat and just gets better from there. It was the chord progression that initially grabbed me, but once I saw where the melody was going, I was hooked. Music to me is about more than entertainment; it’s intellectual stimulation. Unfortunately, more times than not after about 30 seconds I can predict the rest of the song in terms of the chord changes, melodic phrasing, form etc. What I’m looking for is for someone to surprise me. I want to be tricked and be taken somewhere I didn’t expect. “Paint This Town” did that for me and more. It’s one of those songs that allow you to discover new elements upon each listen.

Unfortunately this song, in all its glory, was just not right for the dropbox Capital Grey submitted to. This is the great thing about Music Xray: even though they were not selected for that particular project, I was able to offer them a different deal which they jumped at. After talking to frontman Filip Mandaric for a while, we decided that the world must hear this song. I was more than happy to promote their song, getting their video at least 10,000 views in the first few weeks after it’s release. In return, Filip is designing the new Stacks of Wax website, both of which will be up for the devouring within the new month.

Without Music Xray, not only would I not have ever enjoyed finding Capital Grey but neither of us would have been able to network and barter services so easily. Thanks guys!

You’re welcome Evan. Truly nice to see what a simple submission can lead to and we are definitely happy to know that it benefited both sides. We guess that’s what Music Xray really is: making the right connections possible.

Capital Grey formed in mid-2011 as the singer/songwriter based rock project of Filip Mandaric and guitarist Danny Chau. Reaching into the dense and eclectic tastes of the 60's for inspiration, Capital Grey somehow still manage to mold their tracks into a colorful collage of fresh sounds beaming with complexities that are hard to even catch listening the first time around. Currently unsigned, the band is taking offers for label support, eager to expand wider and further to their fans. Capital Grey is only at the beginning at what looks to be a prolific career in serving rock music that's got its standards rooted in the classic period of greats such as The Beatles and Pink Floyd.
