Bromst Released

Dan Deacon's BROMST was officially released today!
I've spent a lot of time working with Dan in the past year, mostly helping him produce this record. Recording started last April in Silver Spring, MD, tracking mallet percussion with Rich and Kevin O'Meara.

I leave in a week to join Dan and his ensemble on a month long tour around the US. You can see the schedule on his myspace page. We're also playing The Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona at the end of June! Whoa!

Yeah, yeah... so the album did leak a few weeks ago. It was officially released today!

This has been up for a while:
Listen to BROMST on NPR.org

Here's a fun guy:
A video from Pitchfork about our time mixing the album in Montana.
It's in four parts. This is only one part of the final production, but there is some really great footage of the player piano, and Dan talking about the album. I make some chit-chat as well. Scope it!

That's me!

Here's a photo of Montana

I've also been doing some recording work with Video Hippos. We did a few songs that are to be released on a split with Sewn Leather.

Annnnnd continuing work on the Nuclear Power Pants full length which should be released in the fall.
