Gentle Grip – the debut album from NYC dance-punk quartet Public Practice – is streaming now on all platforms. Consisting of members of WALL and Beverly, I’ve known each of the members for years, and have been a fan of the band since their very first show; I’m extremely proud of the work we did here. I co-produced/-recorded half of the record with the band and mixed those songs at Studio Windows, which include the singles “Compromised” (currently on BBC Radio 6’s A List), “Disposable”, and “My Head”, plus “Cities”, “Underneath” (my personal favorite), and “Understanding”. The remainder of the songs were recorded and mixed by the band and Jeff Berner, and the album was mastered by the always-excellent Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound. The press has been fantastic – 4-stars on NME and DIY, Album Of The Day on BBC Radio 6, Album Of The Week on BrooklynVegan, and a glowing review in Treble. Gentle Grip is available now digitally, and LPs/CDs will be available on June 26 via Wharf Cat Records.
Public Practice – the NYC dance-punk quartet featuring members of WALL and Beverly – return with a new single from their debut full-length Gentle Grip. “My Head” – which premiered on Stereogum – is a disco-rooted earworm, and features a video by Studio Jojo. Brooklyn Vegan also featured the track, along with music/book recommendations from the band. “My Head” is one of the songs I co-produced/recorded and mixed on Gentle Grip, and of my favorite songs on the album (which was mastered by Joe LaPorta at Sterling Sound). Check it out now, and pre-order the album, which comes out May 15 (digital)/June 26 (physical) via Wharf Cat Records.
NYC punk/groove quartet Public Practice are back with “Compromised”, the new single of their just-announced full-length debut Gentle Grip. BBC 6 Radio premiered the track, with sites like Paste, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, and NME picking it up in quick succession. “Compromised” is one of the songs on this album that I co-produced/recorded with the band and mixed at Studio Windows; Joe Laporta mastered the record at Sterling Sound. I’ve known the members of Public Practice for a while now, and am truly thrilled with the way this record turned out – SO many surprises in store! Stream the single, watch the video by Josie Keefe & Jonny Campolo (my bandmate in P.E.), and pre-order the record now. Gentle Grip is out May 15 on Wharf Cat Records.
