Post-Trash has premiered “Fly By”, the latest single by NYC noise-rock duo ESSi.  It comes from their debut LP Vital Creatures, which we recorded at Thump Studios last year and mixed/mastered at Studio Windows.  Check out the stellar video (by Brett Ciampa) and lead single “Pines and Cones” below.  Vital Creatures is out September 20 via Ramp Local.

 

NYC noise-rock duo ESSi have announced their debut album Vital Creatures.  I recorded it with them at Thump and mixed/mastered at Studio Windows – it’s a truly strange and beautiful record, super dense and ambitious, especially considering it was generated mostly live by two people.  The first single ‘Pines and Cones’ is streaming below; Vital Creatures comes out October 11 via Ramp Local.

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!

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.
