MRC Update / Soli in Studio

It’s been a crazy busy couple years since our last website news update. Most of our updates can found on our Facebook page, so find us there. We’ve been in our new location for over a year now and been busier than every working on all types of records; hip hop, funk, noise, punk, folk, country, and some great indie rock.

We had the great honor of working with Minneapolis-based funk rock band Soli in January of this year. Check out a video for one of their songs shot in the studio:




Sim​Irrational Album In The Works

Over the last couple months, we’ve been hard at work on Sim​Irrational’s debut full-length English release. Normally releasing battle rap songs in his native language of Russian, Sim​Irrational has taken a turn to release more introspective and lighter songs, written and recorded in his second language of English. We are shooting for an album release sometime in May of 2014.

Some of his previous work can be found on his SoundCloud page.

Take a  look at the video for the song “Better Come Get It” that we put together for the Moscow CSKA basketball team

Buzzers Tape Release

Good friends of the studio, Buzzers have released their first tape, recorded, mixed, and mastered here at Houndsteeth.

This zany and dynamic two-piece band features Patrick Larkin on guitar and vocals and Joe Scott on drums- stemming from acclaimed Minneapolis energetic, spastic band The Miami Dolphins. Buzzers have been playing around town for almost a year and it was a delight to work with them on this 9-song tape.

Check them out on Facebook and head over to their Bandcamp and pickup the release for whatever you want to pay. You can likely catch them in a basement near you.


Darren Brown Release on After Music Recordings

Earlier this month, we had the pleasure to continue working with After Music Recordings on Darren Brown’s textured and sometimes cacophonous release, mastering “Analgesic / Calmative“.

Head to the After Music Recordings Store if your you’d like to pick up a copy. This is the second release we’ve worked on together and I look forward to many more.

Find them on Facebook and support this unique label.


Sage Francis Interview on Filter Free Amerika

On the latest Filter Free Amerika Podcast (episode 77) recorded here at Houndsteeth, we welcomed to the show wildly influential and prolific hip/hop and rap artist Sage Francis.

We discussed his background, his music production process, his Strange Famous record label, the state of America, and many other topics. We also played two songs off his new mix tape and an old favorite of ours.
