Keeping up with all the cool indie releases coming out of NYC is pretty much a full-time job. So we check in periodically with The Lodge, and mastering engineer Joe LaPorta, for a quick fix on what’s coming up.
In addition to co-mastering Foo Fighters’ Wasting Light with Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar, LaPorta’s mastered some of the most critically acclaimed indie records produced or mixed in NYC so far this year, including Smith Westerns’ Dye It Blonde and Cold Cave’s Cherish The Light Years — both of which were produced/mixed by Chris Coady — and the incomparable new release by Tune-yards, whokill.
And according to The Lodge, the coming months will see the release of several more anticipated albums mastered by LaPorta, including Ford & Lopatin’s LP Channel Pressure (mixed by Prefuse 73 and out via Software/Mexican Summer), another Coady-mixed album dubbed True Loves (Dovecote Records) by NYC’s Hooray for Earth, singer/songwriter Robert Ellis‘ Photographs for New West Records (mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Steve Christensen), and a 7″ by Blood Orange (Terrible Records), produced by Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor.
And currently, LaPorta is in the studio wrapping up new full length albums by Sadat X & AG, Class Actress, Zambri, Pink Skull and Dum Dum Girls, in addition to mastering tracks for Oh Land!, Freelance Whales and Lil Jon.
