Fresh off their EU tour, Bodega have released their latest single “Gyrate” off their upcoming debut Endless Scroll (which I mixed, mastered, and helped to record). I’m also playing with Bodega, as part of Pill/Eaters (an improv collaborative group featuring members of Pill and Eaters, duh), at Sunnyvale on June 1. While the official release of their LP has been pushed back, they will have copies at the show, which also features the awesome new dance-punk quartet Public Practice. Endless Scroll is now out July 6 via What’s Your Rupture.
Wide Awake!, the new album by Parquet Courts, is out now via Rough Trade. The LP was produced by Dangermouse (at Electric Lady in NYC and Sonic Ranch in TX), mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, and mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound. I spent a couple days working on additional recording and arrangements at Doctor Wu’s, including field-recording the children’s choir on “Death Will Bring Change”. Wide Awake! has already received rave reviews from a range of publications including Rolling Stone, NME, NPR, and many more. Buy and/or stream it now.
“Jack in Titanic”, the latest single from Bodega’s upcoming album Endless Scroll, is out now. Pitchfork, Paste, DIY Mag, Brooklyn Vegan and others covered the song, the third single from the debut LP. I mixed, mastered, and helped record Endless Scroll, which was produced and recorded by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts. Endless Scroll comes out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture… in the meantime, check out Bodega in a city near you.
Yonatan Gat‘s new album Universalists is out now! Yonatan is the former band-leader of Monotonix, was named “Best Guitarist in NYC” by the Village Voice, and is an absolutely stunning performer. I mixed two songs on this record, which was assembled over a period of three years in about a dozen locations with about that many engineers. Universalists has been featured on both NPR, Tidal, and many other publications, and is available on LP/CD/download from Joyful Noise.
Baltimore indie-pop sensation Snail Mail just received a Best New Track nod from Pitchfork for their new track “Heat Wave”. “Heat Wave” is the second single from their upcoming album Lush, which I recorded with Jake Aron (who produced and mixed the record) at Outlier Inn, Doctor Wu’s, and our new studio in Brooklyn, NY. Lush comes out June 8 on Matador Records.
The Men have a new track called “Shimmer and Shine” on Wharf Cat‘s ACLU Benefit compilation. Stereogum recently premiered the track, which I mixed at Doctor Wu’s while working on the Devil Music sessions. Stream it above, check out their new record Drift (on which I did some additional recording as well), and pick up a copy of the ACLU Benefit Compilation when it comes out April 20.
My group Eaters are featured on Dreams, the new compilation by Stadiums & Shrines and Cascine, featuring original music by Bing & Ruth, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Julie Byrne, Yumi Zouma, Mutual Benefit and more. The deluxe 2LP set comes in a gatefold jacket with a 20-page booklet of original collage and prose stitched to the interior. Visit The FADER to read about the project and hear Yumi Zouma’s contribution. Pre-order is available now, and the compilation is due June 15 via Cascine.
