Rolling Stone “50 Best Albums of 2018”

Opening on a crystalline clean-tone electric guitar strummed at a fervent clip, we hear confident lyrical declarations of “advancing up this road” set to brisk drums and nuanced guitar leads, followed by a resolve not to fall prey to insecurities or distractions.

Algernon Cadwallader - Catalogue Reissue

Mastering, 2018Ryan SchwabeComment
The most influential emo bands are almost invariably mourned using the lexicon of incompletion and imperfection – they break up on the precipice of something bigger, are misunderstood or scorned by contemporary critics, leave a cruelly small recording legacy cited by more commercially successful peers as a primary influence. And since Algernon Cadwallader is a cultishly beloved and defunct emo band, it’s only right that Peter Helmis fondly remembers there being “something unattainable” about the Philadelphia trio.

Cold Fronts - Fantasy du Jour

Mastering, 2018Ryan SchwabeComment

  • Recorded By Joel Wittenberg 
  • Mixed By Justin Gerrish
  • Mastered By Ryan Schwabe 
  • Produced By Ayad Al Adhamy
  • Released: April 20th, 2018
  • Record Label: Sire Records
Fantasy Du Jour, is out on Friday via Sire. It has classic Cold Fronts rock-out moments like “Stayin’ In,” a rifftastic two-minute jam about getting stoned and ordering Indian food. But there are also moments of greater nuance, depth and maturity – the atmospheric dream-pop tones of “Let The Record Play”; the subdued Big Star-esque fingerpicked acoustic ballads “Lightning Storm” and “Back and Forth”; the uplifting vocal harmonies on “The World For Sale.”

Kississippi - Sunset Blush

  • Recorded By Kyle Pulley
  • Mixed By Kyle Pulley
  • Mastered By Ryan Schwabe 
  • Produced By Zoe Reynolds and Kyle Pulley
  • Released: April 6th, 2018
  • Record Label: Side One Dummy
Backed by a small army of her own multiplied vocals, Reynolds sounds victorious. Driving guitar echoes her directness, as do triplet drum rolls. On “Cut Yr Teeth,” Reynolds models the ideal method of dealing with detractors: sever ties, write a great song, have the last word

Museyroom - Sleight of Hand

Mastering, 2017Ryan SchwabeComment

Eclectic and vibrant, Museyroom continue to straddle the line between retro and futuristic, blending lush harmonies and classic Beatles-era psych pop with layered nuances and intricate melodies that stray closer to a perpetually sunny version of Stereolab or Olivia Tremor Control. Songs like “Manlike Boy” and “Grass Is Greener” are prime examples of past and present colliding, two songs that feel as though you’ve known them forever, reshaped into something once again exotic, the idea of “future pop” in its most natural state.

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.

The Superweaks - Better Heavens

2016, MasteringRyan SchwabeComment

With influences ranging from Weezer to Thin Lizzy to The Ergs, the songwriting team delivers song after song of straight to the point powerful pop backed by the occasional impassioned shout and a healthy tinge of fuzz. The band released their debut LP Bad Year in 2015 on Lame-O Records, which led them to tour with everyone from Brand New and The Get Up Kids to Modern Baseball and Joyce Manor.
