April/May/June/July/August/Sept 2017

This has by far been the busiest year of my life and we still have a few months to go.

I’ve had to take a break from playing any shows with Bash & Pop as it has just become impossible to be away from the studio for that much time. Bash & Pop are hitting the road as I type for a long tour opening for The Psychedelic Furs and some other odds & ends.

Earlier this year while on a tour stop in Nashville we recorded a few songs with Nicole Atkins producing, and the first song “Too Late” is available digitally in all the usual places. More HERE.

In August I finished the audio mix for the Jawbreaker documentary “Don’t Break Down“. It’s starting to be shown in theaters around the USA. You can watch the trailer HERE.

I also remastered one of my already favorite sounding albums “Friday Night Is Killing Me” by Bash & Pop. The original album sounds so good there wasn’t much to do, but working on the 2nd disc of bonus tracks containing outtakes, rarities, home demos, and otherwise unreleased tracks was a real treat. It was a bit challenging tying everything together from disc 2 as the songs came from a wide range of sources but I think it works. You can order the 2CD set from Omnivore Recordings. At this time, it won’t be available digitally from online retailers and streaming services.

Otherwise, I’ve just been mastering a lot of albums, EPs, and singles for a lot of bands and artists. Here’s an incomplete and non-chronological list:

Dusk, Sex Scenes, Sweet Knives, Paul Collins, Garrett Dale, Dale Watson, Limbeck, Wooldridge Brothers, Eddie Spaghetti, Brett Newski, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Kepi Ghoulie/ Miss Chain & the Broken Heels (split 7″), Rivvrs, Oddisee and Good Compny, Field Report, We Are Leo, Digital Leather, The Pine Hill Haints, DON rodriguez, The Milwaukee Talkees, Sarah Cleary, Guerrilla Ghost, Yorda/Deezus (split release), Tillie, Low Down Sound, MOON RATS, Anima, Rebecca and the Grey Notes, Jay Matthes, Static Eyes, Funktional Family, Wildlife Cinema, Fibonacci Sequence, Kirby Krackle, Wild Couch, Cave Curse, Pink Beam, Pölisong, The Fisherman & The Sea, Iron Pizza, The WhiskeyBelles, The Mons, Dead is Dead, Black Belt Theatre, White Shape, The End of Music, Tapebenders, Deaf Lingo, Luke Arvid, David Paul Martin, Purple Hell, Matt Monsoor, spanglemaker, The Big Nothing, Ian Gould, Wise Jennings, Go Go Torpedo, Band Of Heathens, Madib’ Toufik, The Raglanders, Mike Lebrun, vonneumann, Ozone Mama, Bloodshot Pyramid, Astronomique, Sundial Mottos, Onion of Truth, David Wax Museum, Prairie Psycho, Justin Wells, Stephen Kellogg, Koiné, …just to name a few.
