After many months of hard work, we have finished St Lucia's forthcoming sophomore LP! This was an absolute pleasure to work on, and I can't wait for it to be released into the world via Columbia Records. Stay tuned for details on that. I got to see the band at the Hollywood Bowl opening for Empire of the Sun, and they are not to be missed. Wet Leather LP is finished! Josh Bonati (Mac Demarco, HEALTH, Wild Nothing) mastered it, and I am so unbelievably excited about this release. We worked really hard on this one and it paid off. First single and release information forthcoming.
This Fall will see the release of some other projects I've worked on. Julia Anrather will release her debut EP. I co-wrote some of the songs with her and produced/engineered/mixed it. She occupies a similar space as Lana Del Rey, but leaning a bit more to the Dusty Springfield side of the spectrum. Polly Hi's debut LP Deceleration will also see release this Fall. This was a really fun project to, building songs around loops and programming while also maintaing a live feel. Both albums will be released on Swell Records.
In terms of upcoming projects, I'm about to start work with Taja from Throw Vision on a solo mixtape. Combining elements of psychedelic soul, hip hop, sound collage, and R and B, it's shaping up to be an awesome project. Also, the Corbu LP I started working on a couple years ago is being mixed by one of my heroes, Dave Fridmann. So excited about that.
That's it for now! Enjoy the crisp autumn weather.
