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(!):

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:

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!











I’ve been talking about this stuff for a while, and now there’s stuff to share!

“School Glue”, the first song from the new Pterodactyl album Spills Out debuted yesterday on Pitchfork.  Check it out:

Spills Out will be released November 15th on Brah / Jagjaguwar.  I handled the bulk of the recording duties, spent some time on the mixing, and mastered the record.  People seem to be digging it, which rules – coz I really like it!

Avos, the album by James Elktington and Nathan Salsburg, comes out on Tompkins Square August 23rd.  It was recorded in a few sessions in my old living room, and mixed earlier this year.  My grandma heard it and loved it!  You can stream the album in its entirity on Fretboard Journal:

Hope you guys like this stuff too!  Thanks for checking it out.
