Like on Weather, the musical reference points on Family Room are Bleach-era Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, Husker Du, etc. Talking about the album, Dave Geeting tells us, “We all grew up on punk, but it’s hard to still be excited about punk. Living in New York for the past 10 years, a good chunk of my time has been spent driving around listening to HOT97. I think at this point in my music career I’m subconsciously trying to figure out how to turn ugly songs into pop songs.”

Baauer - Aa

2016, MixingRyan Schwabe

Artist: Baauer
Album: Aa
Recorded By: Baauer
Mixed By: Ryan Schwabe
Mastered By: Joe Laporta
Produced By: Baauer
Released: March 18, 2016
Record Label: LuckyMe

The album’s melting pot feel is consistent with that of Baauer’s less-famous releases, the EPs Dum Dum (2012) and ß (2014). His methodology is consistent: He excavates the undergirdings of genres like hip-hop, R&B and dancehall, and swaps in a new foundation, often composed of wobbling, thundering bass.

Philadelphia Music


with zero pretense and almost too much heart, the band has created an intimate, largely D.I.Y. world (and gained an obsessive following) that feels fresh and vital, even within a genre that crested more than a decade ago and has largely resisted sonic evolution.
