Vampire Weekend master new album at The Lodge and unleash new video "Cousins"!

Indie sensations Vampire Weekend (XL Recordings) were back at The Lodge to master their supremely anticipated new album "Contra" with Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar and Assistant Joe LaPorta.
Can they live up to they hype and send Alice Cooper running for his money? We think so!!! Their new album is a must hear. Here's the new vid!


Brand New, The Shins & Vampire Weekend make NME Top 100 Greatest Albums of the Decade!!!!

So we're all feeling like a pair of proud sappy parents here at The lodge. Brand New's album "The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me" mastered by Emily and Joe over the summer just made NME's top 100 greatest albums of the decade. The list also includes The Shins' "Chutes Too Narrow" & "Wincing The Night Away" and Vampire Weekend "Vampire Weekend" (all mastered at The Lodge!).

Hooray for top 100 lists!


Bear in Heaven!

Bear In Heaven are our new favorite Brooklyn band at the moment. Lead singer Jon Philpot cycled (literally) to The Lodge this summer to master his band's epic new album with Mastering Engineer Joe LaPorta.
The new album titled "Beast Rest Forth Mouth" infuses dreamy sonic-scapes with a touch of electronica. Seriously good stuff.
