GUERILLA TOSS ALBUM
(: GT ULTRA :)
Amazing!!! Guerilla Toss just recently dropped their new full length titled "GT Ultra" on the super rad DFA Records.
So what can I say!!! Again these guys are so much fun to work with. I've had the pleasure of recording, co-producing and mixing this beast of an album and it was definitely a journey. The music is super dope, intelligent and complex but totally catchy and danceable. Here's a video of the song Skull Pop which just dropped a couple of days ago. Check it..
The band, originally hailing from Boston and with a seemingly rotating cast of bass players recently made their home here in New York a little while back and since then have become the face of this city's ever evolving DIY scene. In times past they have put out a slew of genre and mind bending EP's and LP's on various labels, two of which (Erazer Stargazer and Flood Dosed) were tracked and mixed here also at The Submarine and released through DFA.
This new album is nothing short of monstrous in effort! It completely harnesses the GToss energy and eclecticism while at the same time evolving by way of a more refined, realized and methodically thought out approach to the recording and production process which definitely sets it apart.
Mixing this record was an intense task with songs that feel like they contain 4 songs in 1, massive track counts and automation rides for days. It was a huge challenge and I'm very humbled and grateful to have had the opportunity to again work with these guys on such a great album!!

Take some time out. Put your phone in the basket, stick on some cans, preferably play it off vinyl and enjoy :)
