I spent this past weekend working with Frankie Rose and her awesome band. I hadn’t worked with them for almost 10 months, and it was great to be back with the gang. We did a show at Prospect Park in Brooklyn with Little Dragon, which was recorded and rebroadcast by NPR. It’s always a little strange to hear a board feed after the fact, but I was really pleased with how it sounded. Check out the whole thing here on the NPR Music site. We’re doing a short tour this September too, for those of you in the midwest and east coast!
Lost Coast, a record by Ryan Daniel Hammer that I mastered last year, was recently pressed to vinyl. It’s a really good ambient record, dark but also melodic… very cool. The video for “888” is above, you can stream and download the whole record on his bandcamp, and purchase an LP directly from Positive Beat Recordings.
I recently mastered Rosenwasser, the new LP by Pittsburgh’s Psychic Boots. It’s a weird and wooly journey of art rock and damaged psychedelia. I’m not really sure where to begin with comparisons… just check out some rough mixes from the record on their bandcamp page, or their Junk Food EP.
I’m really psyched for this Saturday, when Parquet Courts are having a record release show for Light Up Gold at Death By Audio in Brooklyn. I’m so proud of that record – it was a blast to make and turned out incredible – and really excited for everyone to hear it. Andrew and Austin from the band did an interview recently on East Village Radio to hype the show, which is pretty rad. I’ve got plenty more to say about it next week when it drops, but in the meantime you can stream and pre-order the LP on their bandcamp page, and check out the video for the title track above.
Thanks for checking all this jibberish out, hope you like some of it, and feel free to say “hey” at jonathan.schenke[at]gmail.com.
