Cretins

Mastering Cretins “Meat” on Deranged Records.

“CRETINS rear their ugly heads yet again with six new cuts of destructive hardcore punk on “Meat”. This is a completely savage recording that harnesses the pure hatred of Poison Idea and depraved genius of Cleveland’s finest into one crushing EP. This is not the safe, easygoing, or experimental garbage that has crept into HC punk in recent years. CRETINS’ approach here is simple – hard hitting and forceful songwriting with lyrics that espouse a clear distaste for humanity. Executed much faster and tighter than previous material, if there’s one CRETINS release to end it all to, “Meat” surely wins out.”

Daylight Robbery.jpg

Mastering Daylight Robbery “Accumulated Error” on Deranged Records.

“Daylight Robbery makes expansive sound for tight spaces. This Chicago trio of DIY scene anchors delivers anxious post-punk for those who came to throw their bodies on the gears and those who came to dance (categories that clearly overlap). 

David and Christine Wolf are a forever-shifting point / counterpoint to one another, both in their melodic guitar and bass interplay and their big harmonies and vocal trade-offs, and Jeff Rice’s propulsive drumming provides a solid foundation on which to build song structures that shift, collapse and grow organically. One may hear echoes of the late ’70s and early ’80s in what they do, but their restlessness is very much of the now, the sound of the endless post-industrial search for stability rather than the sound of the late Cold War.”

If you cannot wait for my services below are some Mastering Studios I recommend.

Red Dons DHoT

Mixing the Red Dons “Dead Hand of Tradition” LP on Taken By Surprise and Deranged Records.

“Five years after their seminal “Fake Meets Failure” LP, Red Dons return with their junior album “The Dead Hand of Tradition,” set to be released August 10th on  Taken By Surprise Records in Europe and later this summer by Deranged Records in North America.

A lot has happened in those five years.

Two of the band’s core members Douglas Burns and Hajji Husayn left their hometown Portland, Oregon behind, for Chicago and London. They recorded and released a slew of singles on labels like Grave Mistake and Dirtnap (including a collaboration with TV Smith of UK punk legends The Adverts). Despite the distance between them, they’ve managed to tour regularly in North America and Europe.

In January this year they reconvened in Portland to record “The Dead Hand of Tradition” at Buzz Or Howl Studios, the same establishment where they recorded the album’s predecessor. “The Dead Hand of Tradition” features ten new tracks of their signature dark, driving, melodic punk rock sound. The formula of their distinctive songwriting hasn’t changed, but has matured as a result of having five more nomadic years under their belts. These new experiences have only added to the themes of alienation, emigration, and loss present in their music.

With Red Dons stalwart Richard Joachim on drums and recent recruit Ruby Sparks of The Stops (Dirt Cult Records / Sabotage Records) on guitar, the band just finished a Midwest / Canadian tour including an appearance at the Ottawa Explosion Fest last month and is returning to Europe for five weeks in the fall.

Pre-order limited white vinyl HERE!”

Criminal Code

Mastering Criminal Code “Salvage” EP on Erste Theke Tonträger and Cut The Cord That…Records.

“In my opinion, Criminal Code need no introduction. If you are not familiar so far, let Daniel Vandenberg explain this band for you! Criminal Code from Tacoma, Washington, play an anthemic, sneakingly melodic mixture of post-punk and cacophony of raw wavy punk. Formed in 2011, they’ve just released several 7“s and their debut LP No Device on Deranged Records, a welcome shot in the vein (or kick in the teeth) to an increasingly ethereal genre. They took their Husker Du/Greg Sage influences and made it their own unique sound. The new 7“ harkens back to the raw, stripped down and primal intensity that characterised the early days of post punk, back when it was still considered just punk, only punk that was a little off and slightly more unsettling than usual. Criminal Code straight rip and rock with an urgency and rabid junkieunpredictability that was traded in long ago when post punk started investing wholeheartedly in synthesisers and chorus pedal collections and diverting down broodier pathways to goth and whatever-wave. Criminal Code are a perfect mess of contradictions, simultaneously full-bodied and forceful, and cold, distant and washed-out, like a hardcore heart in pale post punk skin, or vice versa. While specifically for Criminal Code’s European tour, the EP neatly coheres and expands on their Husker Du Over A Cliff guitars and post-post (post) Wipers despair/rage. Snag the EP on tour and dig hard!”

4.-TV-Smith-Solo

Red Dons have collaborated on a song with punk legend TV Smith, mixed and mastered here.

The former ADVERTS front man wrote lyrics and sings over music we recorded in a Swedish bomb shelter in 2011. The song is titled A Vote for the Unknown. It will be available on vinyl this Fall thanks to Deranged Records and Taken By Surprised Records. Here is a link to the song.

Mother's Children

Mastering the new Mother’s Children LP “Lemon” on Taken By Surprise Records, Mammoth Cave Recording Co., Resurrection Records, and SP Records.

Read what they said about their ARE YOU TOUGH ENOUGH EP

“Canada seems to be the new fertile ground for smashing powerpop. MOTHER’S CHILDREN hail from Ottawa, the same place as great bands like SEDATIVES, STEVE ADAMYK BAND (who they share a member with), WHITE WIRES and many others are from and keep making me go GAGA. This 6 track 12” is the follow up to their well received THAT’S WHO! LP on DERANGED. Dirk Klotzbach from OX put it this way (I fully agree!):
I really hope that you all followed my call up from OX # 92 in the meanwhile and have bought yourself a copy of MOTHER`S CHILDREN “That´s Who” Debut LP. So just to make it clear once again, there is no excuse ! The same as great as mentioned LP is this follow-up 12″ from the Canadians. Power Pop Glam´n´Roll driven to perfection that should be spinning on your record player multiple times a day and that still is on a par with it´s musical archetypes. Take your personal hits from the first three Powerpearls Compilations add it up with the two episodes of Killed By Glam, listen to “Milk & Alcohol” and “She´s A Windup” by DR. FEELGOOD once again, don´t forget your BOYS, STIFFS and FAST CARS records and imagine you would be warped right back to the Seventies where you would be seeing all those bands live on stage, because this is the moment when you realize that you are dancing and beerspitting right in front of the stage of a MOTHER`S CHILDREN show. Maybe you´ll even meet Noddy Holder or Gary Holton there on your timewarp.””

 

 

Tandang

Celebrating Tandang Store’s, Malaysia, first ever tape release!

Red Dons “Fake Meets Failure” Tape || Tandang 001 || Rm 8 || USD 3 + postage.

“Take the epic heaviness of FROM ASHES RISE, dilute it to a more punk rock formula, throw in the density of the WIPERS and add some early- ‘80s LA hardcore melody, and that’s the winning concoction of the RED DONS..,” – Maximum Rocknroll #329

No Problem

Mastering the new No Problem LP coming out on Deranged Records.

Edmonton’s favourite punk band is back. Picking up where “And Now This” left off, they have only gotten better.

“Once a man from Edmonton did six giant hits of acid and sat on the toilet to do a little light reading. He often skimmed through the newspaper’s headlines with a morbid curiosity for the obituaries. But today was different, the acid was quite strong, and when he looked at the recent entries he saw…his own name!!!!”

 

creem7cover

Mastering Creem’s Curator 7″ on Static Shock Records.

“Coming out at the end of May this is a brand new four track EP”

“Members of Nomos and Natural Law combine forces to bring you the best Boston band not from Boston. The band plays early 80s style hardcore not unlike Last Rights or other Choke projects with a heavy dose of Blitz influence in there. ”

 

Finally, if you’re in Europe, be sure to catch Creem and Nuclear Spring on tour in June:
