Wildhoney – Your Face Sideways

I’ve been privileged to work with Wildhoney again, one thing I enjoy about working with artists on multiple projects is that you kind of get to know what to expect from each other. Discussing music in critical terms is as subjective and nuanced as discussing music in general so when you get to work with…

Wildhoney “Fall In” from upcoming LP

Worked on this wonderful record Wildhoney has coming out early next year. Here is the first track off of it. I’m excited for people to hear this one, they made something special here and I’m glad they asked me to be a part of it. Go see them live too, they are the real shoegazing deal!…

Jail Solidarity – Pretty Good Privacy

Worked with DC band Jail Solidarity on their debut EP coming out on Accidental Guest Recordings. Their sound is nice and sludgy / heavy, reminds me of early Swans while some areas reminded me of Flipper. I feel like it’s often really easy to peg a band like this into easily saying they’re hardcore, but…

CP/M 7 Inch

Worked on this fantastic sludgy / heavy 7 inch from Baltimore’s CP/M (gotta love that name). Lot’s of slow cranked riffs on this one and they also did a fantastic split with another killer Baltimore group Birth (Defects). Standout track is definitely INTL with it’s evil march-like cadence but both tracks feature the bass as…

Wildhoney Brooklyn Vegan

Wildhoney’s new EP Over and Over got featured this week in Brooklyn Vegan with spring tour dates announced too. Be sure to catch them if they are coming in or around your town. “Baltimore’s Wildhoney are unabashedly flying the early ’90s shoegaze flag, recalling not only the obvious UK influences, but also their American compatriots…

Roomrunner’s Ideal Cities makes a Rolling Stone top 20

Congrats to my buds Roomrunner for making Rob Sheffield’s Top 20 Albums on Rolling Stone this year! Very cool news. -> 15. Roomrunner, Ideal Cities Full disclozh: I am sometimes (and 100 percent justly) mocked at the Rolling Stone offices for how much I heart the Nineties. When MTV did a Beavis and Butt-Head reboot a couple years ago, my…

Roomrunner Ideal Cities

Had a blast working with Roomrunner on Ideal Cities. This is a really cool record, super loud and super driving, it’s always a pleasure working with them, glad I got a chance to do it again. Stream the entire album over at Spin.

Wildhoney 7″

Just finished working with a great band out of Baltimore, Wildhoney. They have a sound that reminds me a lot of early Slumberland and Teen Beat, and of course Sub Pop era Velocity Girl. Looks like this 7″ will be coming out this summer, but they have a cassette at the moment. Stoked!
