Museum On The Horizon – the latest LP from NYC noise-rock-turned-industrial trio Pop. 1280 – is out now on Profound Lore. Preceded by three wildly different singles and a rush of press on Stereogum and Brooklyn Vegan, the new album finds the group fully embracing their EBM/industrial-dance selves. I co-produced, recorded, and mixed the record with the group at Studio Windows over the winter…. it was one of my first in-person sessions after having to work remotely last year, and we fully dug into the studio process. Every drum machine and synth were synced – resulting in happy accidents and completely bizarre sounds – and we experimented heavily with processing (guitars through synths, synths through amps, everything through something else), resulting in something that feels very LIVE while leaning into the beats & grooves. Josh Bonati mastered Museum On The Horizon, and it’s available digitally and on CD on Bandcamp, and on vinyl direct from the label.
