Party Supplies’ Tough Love “classic rock from the future” sound was created by setting up a microphone stand behind an MPC and strapping on a Stratocaster. They combine funky electronic dance beats with cheery, up-tempo vocals, which makes for a Chromeo meets Easy Rider vibe.

The Lodge Mastering: Golden Suits Solo Debut Album Mastered by Emily Lazar

Department of Eagles member Fred Nicolaus, flies solo for Golden Suits’ debut album on Yep Roc Records, mastered by The Lodge’s Chief Mastering Engineer, Emily Lazar and assisted by Rich Morales.

Checkout the Golden Suits’ debut album on iTunes HERE.

Fred Nicolaus of the band the Department of Eagles, wrote many of the group’s most well known songs, along side Grizzly Bear band member and former NYU roommate, Daniel Rossen.  Standout songs include “No One Does It Like You,”  “Teenagers,” “While We’re Young,” and “Herringbone.”  The Department of Eagle’s last album, In Ear Park, was awarded “Best New Music” by Pitchfork Media and made the New York Times’ year-end top ten list.
His first solo record features contributions from members of the Grizzly Bear, Ava Luna, and Mason Jar Music.  Songs were inspired by a tumultuous year in Nicolaus’ life, which included rat infestations, a bad break up, a trip to Germany, and an obsession with the writer John Cheever.  The new video for “Swimming in ‘99” depicts Nicolaus hopping around NYC, from bookstore to bookstore; buying up as many copies of The Stories of John Cheever as he could get his hands on.  Even the name “Golden Suits” is a reference to the final line of the short story “The Country Husband,” of The Stories of John Cheever.

“Then it is dark; it is a night where kings in golden suits ride elephants over the mountains.”
-John Cheever, The Stories of John Cheever

During the recording process, Nicolaus was forced to think out of the box, which resulted in the Graceland-like one-two beat and female vocals on “Swimming in ‘99.”  He even played the majority of the instruments himself (which includes the guitar, piano, drums and bass).  The indie-folk record took about two years of writing and was completed in Brooklyn.
