Friendship Music, the debut LP from NYC weirdo-thrashers Surfbort is out now via Cult Records/Fat Possum. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this album at Thump and Studio Windows – with the exception of “Slushy” (recorded/mixed by Jonathan Krenik) and “Les Be In Love” (recorded/mixed by Chad Ubovich) – and it’s a blast of fun and noise that seeks to harness the mania of their live shows. Surfbort is currently on tour across the USA with Black Lips and Iceage, before heading to Australia and Europe next month. Pick up a copy when they stop through your city, and stream the record in its entirety below.
Gonzo NYC trash-punks Surfbort have just released a gonzo new video for “Trashworld”, the latest single of their upcoming Cult Records/Fat Possum debut Friendship Music. Brooklyn Vegan shared the video, which was directed by Kansas Bowling, there’s a hilarious behind-the-scenes photo gallery on Alt Citizen, and a sweet write-up on Please Kill Me. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered Friendship Music at Thump Recording and Studio Windows earlier this year; the album comes out October 26. In the meantime, stream the video below and check them out on tour around the US!
NYC goofball hardcore quartet Surfbort have announced the details of their debut full length Friendship Music, out October 26 on Cult/Fat Possum. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this LP (and its accompanying singles) earlier this year at Thump Recording and my own Studio Windows. Check out “Pretty Little Fucker” via Northern Transmissions, and don’t miss them on tour this fall with The Growlers, Amyl & The Sniffers, Black Lips, and Iceage.
NYC punk freaks Surfbort have released a new video for “45” from their upcoming debut album on Cult Records and a single from Muddguts. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered the song earlier this year at Thump and Studio Windows (my new studio with Jake Aron) in Brooklyn, NY. The hilarious, decidedly NSFW video was directed by Jim Tozzi (of Wonder Showzen and Xavier: Warrior Angel) and Sarah Ratty. Check them out this fall on tour with Black Lips and Iceage! #fucktrump #nsfw
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 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.
