this week we are focusing on LOGAN, DEER GOD recording engineer and 1/2 of the indie dance-pop group ACE & THE MIGHTY GAN. after the lease expired on [the end] recording studio in greenpoint a few years ago, many of the engineers came out to staten island with BRIAN to setup a new studio in the historic KREISCHER MANSION. during this formative period (DEER GOD wasn't founded until a year and a bit later) LOGAN was instrumental in reestablishing the new location and maintaining the sprawling estate. he even began growing arugula and lettuce on the premise, that is until the deer reclaimed their territory and ate everything.
LOGAN has worked closely with in recent years with artists like chilean musician GO and YEASAYER. he is known for vocal abilities and propensity for stacking vocals in a mix, which is a tricky thing to do (so i've been told since i am not a recording engineer).
he is also a talented musician that i have seen play several gigs around NYC. he was nice enough to serve as our guinea pig when we were figuring out how to go about filming our KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS live music series. below is our first, and ultimately unpublished, episode taken from the widow's walk on the top floor of the mansion. enjoy.
check out our good friends and frequent collaborators ELI BROOKLYN and SKYE DOMINO as they perform two songs from their 2017 collab EP "5 Minutes in a Deli" for our ongoing KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS live performance series.
both of them have new projects in the works this summer so hit up their social media for more details.
our friends THE HOLY KNIVES are on tour next month throughout the east coast in support of their recent LP "YEAR OF THE BLACK DOG."
make sure to catch their performance at ALPHAVILLE in brooklyn on may 8th for their sole tri-state area appearance.

embedded below is their recent appearance on KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS, recorded live in staten island.
in honor of their current west coast tour, we wanted to showcase a performance our friends CHARMING DISASTER gave on KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS a few months ago as well as provide a link HERE to an interview they did beforehand with MAKERPARKRADIO.
we wish them all the luck as they take in their travels. can't wait to hear what new work this inspires.
back in september we were fortunate enough to have musician MIKE IRELAND (a.k.a. SPIRIT HOUSES) of I AM THE AVALANCHE and PASS AWAY fame drop by and perform two songs ("Inn on Ursulines" and "Perfect Irish Stout") from his latest release TWO PASSING SHIPS on our KREISCHER MANSION SESSIONS live series.
check MIKE out on tour this spring or hit him up at his bar THE THREE DIAMOND DOOR in bushwick.
