Catching up on updates…

VentidRemember Your Audience was released last fall on vinyl. I love this record. RIYL Slint, Cursive, prog (the good kind). They have a few copies left. Listen.

Kowloon Walled City – Last spring we recorded a song for a split with Thou, as part of the Hell Comes Home singles series. Thou covered “4th Of July” by Soundgarden. We covered “July” by Low, with guest vocals by the amazing Lisa Papineau. I recorded our side at TTJ (our classy practice space). Anyway — the record is finally out and it looks great. The label is sold out of individual copies, but has some subscriptions left. We’ll have a few individual copies for sale pretty soon. Listen.

GeneralissimoIron Heart is a 7″ with two songs from our session last fall. It contains the bass tone of a thousand forgotten proles. Listen. (this is neat: there’s another version of “Silver Skin”, recorded the following week by Tim Green at Louder, on their new LP.)

Sanford Parker – My interview with Sanford was in the Nov/Dec Tape Op. There’s some bonus content online.

Yowie – I just finished mixing a record for these guys, and it’s being mastered now. Crazy atonal prog-noise. This should be required listening for every tech metal band that talks about how their music is too weird for most people.

Ladder Devils – I just finished mixing four songs for a vinyl release that’s happening Really Soon.

Tigon – And right now, I’m working on a full-length for Tigon. We tracked at Sharkbite, with some overdubs at TTJ. These guys have been my favorite heavy Bay Area band for years. Weird, heavy, really good. I’m stoked on this record.
