Brooklyn-based noise-rock combo Weeping Icon just dropped their self-titled full-length album.  Pitchfork called the songs “noisy punk thrashers that are clever, incisive, and frequently very funny” in their very positive review, and the group had great press also in Kerrang, Bandcamp Daily, Stereogum, AdHoc, and others.  Ben Greenberg recorded and mixed the record, and I assembled and mastered it with the group at Studio Windows.  Dig in above, below, and beyondWeeping Icon is out now on Fire Talk.

 

After a couple of buzz-worthy EPs, Chicago DIY trio Dehd have released their debut full-length ‘Water’.  The group (featuring members of Chicago faves Ne-Hi and Vail) trades boy-girl vocals over earworm-worthy fuzzy, minimal nuggets of classic “indie rock”.  The album – recorded and mixed by band member Jason Bella, and mastered by myself – has already earned rave reviews from Vice, AllMusic, Paste, Stereogum, The Fader and more.  You can stream the record below, and pick up a copy of the record via Fire Talk or at one of their many US shows in May/June.
