Music Column July 21, 2006, by Christopher Gray
"...THE PRODUCER "I've always had a predisposition to figuring stuff out," says Erik Wofford, the soft-spoken local producer whose recent credits include Voxtrot, Snowden, the Black Angels, the Octopus Project, and Okkervil River. "I've always been curious how things work..."
Playback: The Future of Austin Recording Studios
Studio owners look at different solutions to surviving in an increasingly expensive city
Music Column August 4, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Just east of Good Danny's former location, another favorite Austin studio exists improbably on valuable waterfront property. Two years back, an investment group bought a strip of property on Red Bluff Road including the studio Erik Wofford had been renting for over a decade, Cacophony Recorders, where he fashioned platters by the Black Angels and Explosions in the Sky..."

Explosions in the Sky commemorates the Fourth of July, Harlem signs with Matador, floating down to Whitewater on the Horseshoe, and paying tribute to Sky Sunlight Saxon and the King of Pop
Music Column July 3, 2009, by Austin Powell
"...Explosions in the Sky played its first show as Breaker Morant on July 4, 1999, for an audience of one – Erik Wofford, who engineered the instrumentalists' Local Live session on KVRX. "Nobody had ever heard them; no one wanted to do it," laughs Wofford, who later produced the band's CD-R debut, How Strange, Innocence..."
Adam Torres’ Big Sky Americana
His panoramic view of the world transcends into his haunting falsetto
Music Story July 13, 2017, by Alejandra Ramirez
"...Unlike Nostra Nova, which lurches with a pop-gleaned intensity rooted in collegiate Ohio, Pearls to Swine, recorded at Cacophony Recorders with Erik Wofford after Torres moved here in 2011, rises into an endless Southwestern sky...."
Candi & the Strangers
Music Review February 11, 2011, by Audra Schroeder
"...Name referencing Warhol starlet Candy Darling, a Fleetwood Mac-esque lineup, and a recent cover of the Cars' "Moving in Stereo" stock the cookie jar of local dream-weavers Candi & the Strangers. The Austin quintet – couples John and Samantha Constant and Angie and Greg Rose, plus ubiquitous producer Erik Wofford – shoots for the stars on its sophomore LP, charting Madonna ("Children of the Tone"), Stereolab ("Glide"), and a not-so-coincidental transition of "Velvet" into "Nico Regrets." Samantha Constant's voice is more inviting and light than the German singer's, but "Nico" nevertheless sounds like something you could whirl around Studio 54..."

Tosca: Indie Rock's Orchestra
Music Story May 18, 2007, by Darcie Stevens
"...Tosca recorded strings for Voxtrot during this year's winter storm, as sheets of ice slipped from the rooftops and space heaters warmed Erik Wofford's Cacophony Recorders. The result is a mellifluous mix of birdcalls ("Ghost") and explosion ("Brother in Conflict")..."

"..."We've congealed as a band. Instead of this wall-of-sound thing going on, there's more definition." Mazzi, bassist/singer Ruby Painter, and drummer Steve Sanders congealed enough to knock out the Mumbo Jumbo EP, which they release Friday at Emo's, in three days at producer Erik Wofford's Cacophony Recorders..."

Five trending Austin-hatched acts that sidestepped recording’s biggest pitfall

"...Recorded with Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders in East Austin before Cohen's move, Mise en Place also came together the way its driving force always wanted to approach her musical output. Ahead of Alex Napping getting into the studio, the band had only played two or three of the tracks live...."

"...Torres spent most of last year on the road with his band of Austin eclectics: percussionist Thor Harris (ex-Swans), Aisha Burns (Balmorhea), and multi-instrumentalist Dailey Toliver (Molly Burch). The same group cut the session at Erik Wofford's Cacophony Recorders that spawned both Pearls to Swine and this week's follow-up..."

DAILY Music December 6, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...It was important for us to have this whole project be homegrown and convey the feeling of people in Austin working together. In addition to our bands and producing it between our two labels, we also had the recording mastered by Erik Wofford at Cacophony Recorders and the art done by Jaime Zuverza...."
Music Review November 23, 2016, by Kahron Spearman
"...Acquiring a more straightforward tack for round two, Austin duo Imperialists follows up its debut, the stormy alt-synth pop fusion Arrhythmia, with anthemic synth sweller Who Are You Afraid Of? Co-produced by renowned Austin producer Erik Wofford, the former Ghost of the Russian Empire members' billowing harmonies and cloudy ambience remain from the first full-length. Radio-ready lead track "Nuke (Look Me in the Eyes)" echoes early Mutemath and the better bits of Eighties arena synth, Genesis covering experimental Tortoise jams..."
Golden Dawn Arkestra
Music Story March 17, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Austin's Afrobeat aliens successfully etched a psychedelic jazz-funk party onto their 2014 debut EP, and now repeat the trick with sophomore vinyl that deepens the grooves into electro-funk. The 10- to 20-piece collective follows that lodestar on this eight-song-long effort: galactic disco on gibberish chant "Sama Chaka," space-surf guitar with "Osaka," and a tropical R&B melody on uplifting standout "Clouds." Local analog master Erik Wofford again captures GDA's multitude of keyboards, horns, vibraphone, flute, and percussion with a clarity that rockets past exotic to interplanetary..."
Music Review August 20, 2015, by Neph Basedow
"...Cello-buoyed opener "Dryland" commences the 11-track CD, its spiritually skewed chorus conveying the expat's embraced migration effectively: "I'm finally home," he sings, a tinge of twang detected in his calm baritone. Contributions from members of the Polyphonic Spree and Dana Falconberry's backing band reinforce the album's Texas slant, as do its producer Matt Pence (Midlake, Centro-matic), and mixer Erik Wofford (Black Angels, White Denim)..."
