Check out “Can’t Knock the Hustle”, Bodega’s newest single from their debut album Endless Scroll. Austin Brown produced the LP, which I mixed and mastered at my old studio Doctor Wu’s in Brooklyn, NY. FUN FACT: this LP was recorded on the Tascam 388 we used for Light Up Gold, The Keepsies, and the tape-machine shootout. Endless Scroll comes out June 1 via What’s Your Rupture.
“Pristine”, the first single from Snail Mail‘s upcoming LP Lush, was just awarded “Best New Track” by Pitchfork. The album was produced by my studio partner Jake Aron, which I helped record at Outlier Inn (in Woodridge, NY, on their Neve VR) and our old studio Doctor Wu’s (in Brooklyn, NY). I’m very happy to have been a part of this record, and very proud of the band and Jake for the work they put into this gorgeous work. Lush comes out June 8 on Matador Records.
Surfbort‘s Romance EP is out now on Cult Records. I mastered these songs on this limited edition flexi-disc 7″, which were recorded by Chad Ubovich (Fuzz, Meatbodies) and Jonathan Krenik, and come with a poster and sticker. We’re wrapping up their full-length debut now, which I recorded at Thump and am mixing/mastering at my new studio in Brooklyn – stay tuned!
NYC’s post-punk quintet Bodega premiered “How Did This Happen?!”, which was featured on Brooklyn Vegan, Northern Transmissions, DIY Mag, and Clash. “How?!” is the first single from their debut album Endless Scroll, produced and recorded by Austin Brown (of Parquet Courts), and mixed/mastered by me at Doctor Wu’s. Endless Scroll is out June 1 on What’s Your Rupture; in the meantime, catch the band at SXSW, around NYC, and in Europe this spring.
NYC thrashers Surfbort premiered “Les Be in Love” on Office. It’s the first single from the Romance EP, recorded/mixed by Chad Ubovich (Meatbodies, Fuzz) and mastered by me, and the first for Cult Records. I’m recording their new record now, out later this year via Cult.
Baltimore’s nervy new-wave synth rockers Surf Harp premiered their first single “D.I. Cig” on Tiny Mix Tapes. It comes from Mr. Big Picture, engineered/mixed by Lorenzo Wolff and Dara Hirsch (Operator Music Band) and which I mastered earlier this year – Mr. Big Picture comes out February 23 on Friends Records.
