Kowloon Walled City Grievances Our third LP came out in October. We put a lot into it and we’re all proud of the results. (listen | session pics)


Ghoul Dungeon Bastards “The mosh parts have mosh parts.” I recorded and mixed. We tracked drums in two days in my tiny room at Antisleep. No grids, no samples. This record rules and, holy shit, it debuted at #13 on the Billboard hard rock charts. (listen)

Roger Waters and My Morning Jacket Live at the Newport Folk Festival, playing a Dylan song. I mixed the last song in this video. More than once, I looked at the labels on my faders in disbelief.


Fred Frith Trio Another Day in Fucking Paradise My friend Jason Hoopes plays bass in Fred’s new trio, and asked if I was interested in recording an LP for them. Sure, I guess. In January we spent three very focused days tracking at Sharkbite. I did my best to make this session smooth and painless, so the group’s inspiration and improvisation were in charge. And even though really I was running to keep up, I survived and it was great to be a part of this. Myles Boisen mixed and mastered. (listen)


Mouth Deathroll. A 12 minute LP of gnarly drum/bass hardcore. These guys came in to Sharkbite super dialed, which gave us enough time to stretch and find some cool sounds. Mixed on the Neotek at Antisleep. Great record. (listen | session pics)

Doralice Rusted Pieces Doralice is Yates and Rima from Ventid, playing acoustic chamber… jazz? While we were tracking an LP last year, we realized that the three of us all love Megadeth Rust In Peace. I started talking them into covering a song, and somehow a few months later Yates had arranged acoustic versions of the entire record. That’s insane, but anyway, we booked a day in Sharkbite to shoot a live video with my friend Colin Frangos, then track as many songs as we could manage. That turned into a 5-song EP. (listen)


Mercy Ties Proper Corruption Total ripper. Tracked (at Sharkbite) and mixed (at Antisleep) in seven days. Amazingly I think this is the first record I’ve done start to finish in one consecutive block of time. (listen | session pics)


Throes To Dust Also a ripper. Andy Patterson tracked at The Boar’s Nest, and I mixed. (listen)


Solip Dissociation Heavy, washy pedalboard doom from Oakland. Tracked in a weekend at Sharkbite, mixed on the console at Antisleep. (listen | session pics)
