The next three episodes of Catherine are now showing on the JASH Network (Sarah Silverman, Tim & Eric, Michael Cera, and Reggie Watts’ new Youtube collective). It’s been so much fun to get so weird with these sounds, and the series just gets more bizarre and beautiful as it goes. Jenny and Dean killed it with the show – get into it!
I’ve mastered a couple records for Chicago associates recently. The Clams have a new EP full of oddball Kinks-inspired pop tunes coming out soon. And Maxel Toft just released the album 32 in his Presidents series. It’s a folk record about FDR (our 32nd president), and is available for download with a Roosevelt dime as an individual keepsake.
I’m very excited about the addition of a UAD Satellite and a bunch of new plugins to my personal studio. It’s been a huge boost to the quality of my mixing and mastering work – I ended up mastering the Parquet Courts EP myself with these, and loved it!
Also, I did another interview recently, this time with the Red Bull Music Academy‘s paper The Daily Note. The interview is in a column called Work Flow, where musicians and technically minded people like myself are asked to elaborate on their creative process and the effect that gear and its limitations have on their work. You can download a pdf of the whole paper (which also has articles on Vogueing and Nile Rodgers) right here.
