90 In November, the debut album by Texas/NYC indie rock quintet Why Bonnie, is out now. The record has been getting good looks from all around – Paste (8/10), Loud And Quiet (8/10), Allmusic (3.5/5) and Pitchfork (6.9/10) – with interviews in Under The Radar and Brooklyn Vegan as well. Why Bonnie recorded these songs in Silsbee, TX with Tommy Read, and I worked with the group to flesh out the arrangements, mix, and master the album at Studio Windows. Working with Blair and Sam to shape and finish this record was a delightful experience, and I believe the results show that – I’m thrilled this LP is out in the world. 90 In November is out now on Keeled Scales.
NYC/Austin-based quintet Why Bonnie are back with their new single “Nowhere, LA”. The song was featured on Stereogum, Under The Radar, Clash, and other publications, and is the fifth song shared from their upcoming LP 90 In November. This song stands out in my memory as one really came together in the studio – replacing the vocals and adding layers of piano, guitar, and other textures to the arrangement – to become a standout on the album. I’m psyched it’s a single! 90 In November comes out August 19 on Keeled Scales.
NYC-via-Texas indie rockers Why Bonnie have announced their debut full-length 90 In November and shared its title track. The song was featured in The Fader (“a blissful track that feels like a ray of sunshine”), Stereogum, and others, and follows the previously released single “Galveston” (which is also featured on the LP). The album was recorded in Silsbee, TX by Tommy Read, and I worked with the group to finish arrangements, mix, and master at Studio Windows. I loved working with them on these songs (this one is particularly special), and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with the world! 90 In November is out August 19 on Keeled Scales.
Austin/NYC indie-rock quintet Why Bonnie are back with their new single “Galveston”. The song was picked up by The Fader, Stereogum, and Brooklyn Vegan (among others), and features a video by lead singer/songwriter Blair Howerton and Grace Pendleton. As a fellow native-Houstonian, I immediately gravitated to this song, having spent countless weekends on Galveston Island. “Galveston” is the fuzzy/twangy first taste of a batch of songs we worked on together earlier this year – mixing, additional production & recording, and mastering at Studio Windows – and it’s out now on Fat Possum Records.
