Phantom Rhythm, the debut full-length from Beijing-based “transnational blues” duo Gong Gong Gong, is out now!  I am so proud of this record, and ecstatic to see it out in the world – we began recording the album at Seaside Lounge in October 2017 (the same sessions that yielded the Siren single), and finished mixing earlier this year at Studio Windows.  In the meantime, they’ve toured with Parquet Courts, Flasher, and Bodega in the US, Europe, and China, and made fans worldwide.  Just read the press:

“An alarmingly stripped-down form of hypnotic rock which spiritually evokes the blues as well as punk, but otherwise can’t be directly compared to any other genre or artist” – Allmusic

“An album of avant-rock, unpretentious high art” – Pop Bollocks

“Ambassadors of the worldwide underground through a thoughtful collection of haunting barebones punk” – Post Trash

8/10: “Fearsome psych rock by the slightest means” – Loud & Quiet

Working with the group and producing these recordings has been a highlight of my career.  Stream the album in full, pickup a copy on LP or CD, and do not miss them live!  Phantom Rhythm is out now on Wharf Cat Records.

 

Beijing-based “transnational blues” duo Gong Gong Gong have released their newest 7″ “Siren” b/w “Something’s Happening”. I produced this single (along with their upcoming full-length record), recording at October 2017 at Seaside Lounge and Doctor Wu’s, and mixed/mastered at Studio Windows this spring.  The duo recently wrapped up a tour with Parquet Courts, will be touring with Flasher and Public Practice this winter, and with Bodega in February 2019.  If you haven’t already, check out the amazing video for “Siren” below, and pick up their single now via Wharf Cat Records.

Beijing-based psychedelic blues duo Gong Gong Gong have announced their American debut single “Siren” (out November 9 via Wharf Cat).  I produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this along with their upcoming full-length Phantom Rhythm in fall 2017 – winter 2018 at Seaside Lounge, Doctor Wu’s (RIP), and Studio Windows. “Siren” is perhaps my favorite of the songs we tracked, and a wonderful introduction to this unique band.  Check it out via Stereogum, along with their upcoming tour dates supporting Parquet Courts, Flasher, and Bodega.
