NYC celestial shoegazers Lightning Bug have signed to Fat Possum to reissue their most recent record October Song.  I mastered this (which received an 8.0 on Pitchfork) and their debut Floaters (which NME ranked among the best debuts of the year), and am thrilled for this beautiful nugget to find a wider audience.  October Song is available now on LP through Fat Possum.

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 MusicBrooklyn 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!
