Wow, we really fell off with the updates! It wasn't due to laziness, though - we've been working harder than ever at the studio. There have been many improvements around Doctor Wu's - from workflow and layout, to acoustics and monitoring, to a new vocal booth and overdub area. Come check out the studio if you haven't been by in a while. [ 414 more words. ]

First Listen: Parquet Courts, 'Sunbathing Animal'

NPR is streaming the new Parquet Courts LP this week. HEAR Jonny put all 8 tracks of his Otari to good use! FEEL the absurd frequencies they wrenched from our studio! SEE that ladder from our hallway in the background! TASTE the sweat trickling down your brow! SMELL.... what is that smell?

The Brooklyn rock band still wind-sprints with deadly efficiency. But the slower moments on Sunbathing Animal locate the essence of heartache in unexpected ways.
