Hola, amigos. I know it's been a long time since we rapped at ya, but it's been a busy year! And see, there comes a point in life when one has to accept that one is not good at certain things. Things like updating websites, and Facebook and Instagram (@seasidelounge). But you know what? That's okay, because we are good at the important things in life, like making records in Park Slope. Here are a few we've made lately;

Night Birds - "Mutiny at Muscle Beach", great surfy punk rock from NJ. Produced by Chris Pierce, engineered by our own Mitch Rackin.

Matte Black - "Dust of this Planet", heavy Brooklyn psych, also with Mitch at the helm. This one was recorded and mixed entirely on analog tape. It can still be done!

The Giraffes - "Usury", the Brooklyn hard rock institution's long-awaited comeback LP. Recorded by Charles Burst.

VBA - "Will It Still Be There", engineered by Jonathan Schenke. Excellent, dark, noise rock featuring Vince Nudo from Priestess / Kurt Vile & The Violators.

Heroes of Toolik recorded with legendary NYC producer Wharton Tiers (Sonic Youth, Dinsoaur Jr). Among other great players, the band features Billy Ficca and Ernie Brooks (Television / Modern Lovers). Who have made some of our all-time favorite records. Chuffed! Release date TBA.

Volga Volga - "Lumps", featuring Seaside intern and budding mycologist / ornithologist Ivan Kuraev. Engineered by Charles and Ivan. Lovely, bittersweet, folk-rock.

Ok, back to fixing stuff so that everything works nice for you fine folks. Thanks for visiting. Stop by and say hi sometime.
