Crocodiles’ album Dreamless out now!

17 Nov


A very different Crocodiles record this time, more focused on bass lines and beats than walls of guitars. As always a pleasure to work with Brandon and Charles in the studio, even though we were all experiencing hardships in real life at the time. It’s not a just gimmick the album is called Dreamless.

CROCODILES’ New 7″ – Crybaby Demon

Brandon from the Crocodiles just sent me their brand new 7″, the first single from the album “Boys” which I produced with them last year, recorded here in my studio in Mexico City. This 7″ has a niff of fancy risotto, stale beer and too many scoops of ice cream. “Boys” will be out at the end of April, 2015.
Brilliant album! Awesome single!

Listen here!

Martin Thulin Mix Tape

15 Nov

Martin Ensayo

These are some of the songs I listened to when I wrote the album “I’d Rather Be Transparent Than A Shadow In The Dark”. I hope some of the magic rubbed off…
Originally I made this mix-tape for but I never saw it published, or did I simply miss it? Sorry, no playlist, lost it at some point…you can always write to me and ask for any particular songs (indicating min/sec).
Music is the only real sex!

Aaron Bautistas’ first LP since Nos Llamamos

10 Oct


Long-time friend Aaron Bautista finally released his first solo effort. 7 years after the Nos Llamamos debut album I produced, don’t even remember anymore…? What I like about this record is that it seems to live within it’s own universe, careless about trends out there. A very personal album, I respect that a lot. Produced by Hugo Quezada, ex-Robota.


3rd Ear – Silicone Carne, 2005. unreleased album.

12 Sep

3rd Ear - Silicone Carne, 2005. unreleased album.

In 2005 I finished this album for Horseglue Records, a London based label run by Add N to (x)’s Barry 7 and Ethan Reid from Soul Jazz. Unfortunately the label went bankrupt when the master was finished. It’s been laying on the shelf ever since, until to today. This is the best album I’ve made. Hope you like it.


UK review of Guns Down / The Sound of Confusion

UK review of Guns Down

Guns Down Single
“It could easily be said that ‘Guns Down’ explores the perimeter fence of popular music without quite ever entering it, but it’s not totally esoteric, in fact it’s a fairly easy listen, if an unusual one. As fans of people trying new ideas and stamping their individuality on the music they make we can only give praise to this track, and maybe explore what else Martin Thulin has to offer.”
