Alyeska Releases Debut Ep Crush

in New Music by

Los Angeles dream rockers Alyeska have released their debut EP today.

Crush was the last record to be recorded at the legendary New York recording studio The Magic Shop which closed its doors last year after being pushed out of its home by rising rents in the area.

David Bowie’s Blackstar, Arcade Fires The Suburbs, Sonic Youth’s Dirty and countless other records from Norah Jones, Coldplay and the Foo Fighters were all recorded at the Magic Shop.

The EP was produced by legendary producer John Agnello who has produced and recorded some of the most stand-out indie rock records in the past 20 years including
Kurt Vile’s Smoke Ring for My Halo and Walkin’ On A Pretty Daze, the Dinosaur Jr. reunion records and Phosphorescent’s breakthrough record Muchacho.
