Cold Callers

Mastering Cold Callers “Alright Girl/ Spying On Me”on Wanda Records.

Taken from Faster and Louder:

“Supergroup alert! Cold Callers feature Marco from No Front Teeth Records, The Gaggers, Miscalculations, Disco Lepers, etc. teaming up with members of Los Pepes (one of my five favorite bands of the moment!). The band recently released its debut single: “Alright Girl” b/w “Spying On Me”. I continue to marvel at how Marco can have dozens of projects going at the same time and still manage to have them all sound a little different. Cold Callers are one of the most unique bands I’ve heard in a while. Essentially they’re playing ’60s inspired jangly power pop, but there are hints of post-punk and psychedelia coming through as well. The A-side takes it back to the roots of power pop – bringing to mind early to mid ’60s Who and Brit-obsessed American garage bands like The Choir. I dig! “Spying On Me” is in a somewhat similar vein but more overtly post-punk influenced. I’d describe the mood of the song as alluringly creepy. It’s haunting yet quite beautiful. This could almost be a Miscalculations song!

All in all, this is a fantastic debut single from Cold Callers. Both songs are really sticking in my head. Get the vinyl from Wanda Records!”

Mixing the Rhubarb Triangle “67 Guilford Street (I Feel Alright) / She’s A Demon” on Rhubarb Records.

“The second single from UK three-piece The Rhubarb Triangle. Limited to 300 copies, this double flexi disc (on red and green plastic) comes housed in a hand cut, screen-printed gatefold sleeve. “One of this years most effective, and affecting spins”. ~Shindig! Magazine, Issue #53. “A psych-rock shimmer frothing with sexual tension, otherworldly echo and good old rock’n’roll. It’s a perfectly packaged 7-inch that really does scream ‘Look At Me’! Recommended” ~Jumbo Records, Leeds.”

Ajax

Mastering Ajax “S/T” on Static Shock Records.

“NYC’s finest follow up their demo and 7” on Katorga Works, along with their appearance on the HARDCORE: GIMME SOME MORE compilation, with what could very well be their best material to date! The four tracks on this new recording continue to exhibit the band’s perfected blend of USHC combined with the best of Sweden with harsh vocals barked over TOTALITAR influenced riffing. Saying that this release is essential would be an understatement. Each record comes in a full color glue pocket sleeve adorned with artwork by Shiva Addanki.”
