Pterodactyl‘s new album Spills Out is out today on Brah Records!  I worked closely with the band over a few months earlier this year to craft and refine the album, so it’s really really really exciting to see it out in the world.  Check out this streaming player and brief interview with Joe K from the band at Spin Magazine(!): http://www.spin.com/articles/first-spin-tales-behind-pterodactyls-spills-out

In other Pterodactyl news, I recently remastered and rereleased their 2010 mini-album Arnold’s Park on SOUNGS.  It’s available as a limited-edition cassette (with silk-screened artwork and a download code) and as a digital download.  It’s a badass record that didn’t get much play the first time around, and you can stream the whole thing at the SOUNGS Bandcamp page:  http://soungs.bandcamp.com/album/arnolds-park

I just wrapped up a week and half of recording with Fergus & Geromino at Seaside Lounge.  It was an awesome experience – the studio is great, the band was creative and on-point, and everyone had a blast making this tunes.  They’re mixing this week, and the record should be out in the spring on Hardly Art.  Expect to hear a lot more about this record!

Lots of other things brewing right now, more info soon…. feel free to get in touch – jonathan[dot]schenke[at]gmail[dot]com – and thanks for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My boy Daniel Francis Doyle has a new single out now on Monofonus Press.  We recorded the song “Debbie” at his place earlier this year, and I’m thrilled to see it out!  It’s a one-sided split single, also featuring music by the Dikes of Holland, and artwork by Tim Doyle on the flip side.  Check out a brief performance of the song above, followed by a stream of the single version.  You can pick up one of these lovely copies at the Monofonus store.

Also, my friends in No Fun posted two songs we recorded in their practice space early this year on their Bandcamp page.  Check it out!

I spent last week doing sound around NYC for CMJ Festival.  It was a hustle, for sure, but I’m glad to have done it.  The Cantora Labs / Smart Lounge party was pretty cool.

This week, I’m working on the master for the upcoming Unmanned Ship album on Rotted Tooth Recordings, and putting together the finishing touches on the reissue of Pterodactyl‘s Arnold’s Park album on my own SOUNGS Label.  WOOT!
