Hey Everyone,

Things are awesome here! The Studio A control room has just gotten a full acoustic treatment and makeover. That coupled with the brand new floor, ceiling and acoustical treatment in our live room, the studio is a whole new animal. Pictures coming soon! We also got some sweet new gear, new Big Speakers for the main control room, some sweet new mics for the drums and a sweet new Bad Cat Amp. Oh yeah, the Lounge got a nice new flat screen and Apple TV!

While we have been fixing the place up, the fun never stops… We are presently finishing up a LP with Sunrise and Ammunition who has been here for 2 weeks from Texas. We have also had in NightLight, I Am Fighting, The Bamboo Kids, The Walk Ons, Follow Your Hero, Sensual Harassment, Franz Nicolay/Major General, Juicehead, Osaka Popstar, Boy Things, Late Cambrian and the awesome Possum & The Panther.

Congrats are in order for our friends in Morning Glory who just signed to Fat Wreckchords who will be releasing the amazing LP we made together.

Cudzoo & The Faggettes record came out, we had a ton of fun engineering/mixing this while Producer Dean Rispler worked his magic on them. If you are into girls with filthy mouths singing 50/60s girl group inspired jams, get on this fast. Below is the first video or you can stream the whole record here.

Our friends in Washington Square Park just announced their breakup, but thankfully they put out the last EP we did with them which is one of our favorite things to come through the studio last year. You can listen to it below:

Follow Your Hero posted the first song from their new EP we did below: Kick ass melodic indie/pop punk stuff, totally awesome guitar interplay with memorable hooks.

I Am Fighting made this cool video of their experience recording here. You can see how much they enjoyed Jesse being a hard ass about getting vocals right. We look forward to them releasing the smooth pop songs we did with them.

News January 2012!

Happy New Year! We have been very busy, as always! We just did some awesome acoustic and cosmetic treatment to the studio as well as some great upgrades to our studio equipment! Pictures coming soon!

Recently we have had James Hendrick, 2 Man Advantage (doing a new LP and remastering their classic record Drafted), The Walk Ons, FLS, Darren Smith and The Ride Down, all come through the studio doors and lay down some great stuff.

In very exciting news two records we worked very hard on are done. Below is the first track we finished with NightLight and I can say it is one of the best pop songs we have ever done:

We worked tirelessly for months on the new Morning Glory record and it is one of the most interesting and progressive punk records we have ever heard. If you love punk you should check out this track:
