NYC punk freakazoids Surfbort are back with a new EP called ‘You Don’t Exist’! These four raucous blasts of songs are from the same sessions as Friendship Music, recorded at Thump and mixed/mastered by me at Studio Windows. The band has toured constantly over the past year, recently appeared as stars of a new campaign from Gucci, and were featured in The Guardian leading up to the UK release of Friendship Music. Pick up a copy of the limited-edition 10″ via Modern Sky, stream or buy it on Bandcamp, and don’t miss them next time they’re in your town!
NYC longtime-weirdos Ice Balloons have a new 7″ single: “Bicky Do Down” b/w “Body in the Park”. I recorded these tracks with the group – which features members of TV on the Radio, Samiam, and Surfbort – at Seaside Lounge during the sessions for their last LP Fiesta, and mixed/mastered them later at Studio Windows. We’re celebrating the occasion tonight at Coney Island Baby, where I’ll be performing a microtonal drone set with my group Eaters. Pick up a copy there or from their Bandcamp page, and stream it below.
Friendship Music, the debut LP from NYC weirdo-thrashers Surfbort is out now via Cult Records/Fat Possum. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this album at Thump and Studio Windows – with the exception of “Slushy” (recorded/mixed by Jonathan Krenik) and “Les Be In Love” (recorded/mixed by Chad Ubovich) – and it’s a blast of fun and noise that seeks to harness the mania of their live shows. Surfbort is currently on tour across the USA with Black Lips and Iceage, before heading to Australia and Europe next month. Pick up a copy when they stop through your city, and stream the record in its entirety below.
NYC scuzz punks Gnarcisssists premiered their debut self-titled EP via Post-Trash. I mixed and mastered the EP, which was recorded by Lucas Carpenter, our assistant at Studio Windows. You can stream the EP below and buy it on their Bandcamp now, or pick up a copy at their show with Surfbort later this month.
Gonzo NYC trash-punks Surfbort have just released a gonzo new video for “Trashworld”, the latest single of their upcoming Cult Records/Fat Possum debut Friendship Music. Brooklyn Vegan shared the video, which was directed by Kansas Bowling, there’s a hilarious behind-the-scenes photo gallery on Alt Citizen, and a sweet write-up on Please Kill Me. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered Friendship Music at Thump Recording and Studio Windows earlier this year; the album comes out October 26. In the meantime, stream the video below and check them out on tour around the US!
NYC goofball hardcore quartet Surfbort have announced the details of their debut full length Friendship Music, out October 26 on Cult/Fat Possum. I co-produced/recorded/mixed/mastered this LP (and its accompanying singles) earlier this year at Thump Recording and my own Studio Windows. Check out “Pretty Little Fucker” via Northern Transmissions, and don’t miss them on tour this fall with The Growlers, Amyl & The Sniffers, Black Lips, and Iceage.
