Minneapolis-based indie rock trio, Porcupine, just shared a documentary that details the re-recording of their 2015 album, Carrier Wave, with legendary record engineer and record producer, Steve Alibi.
The Big Takeover, who debuted the documentary, says, “A story of music, friendship, and perseverance, this documentary short follows the band Porcupine as they record their 2015 EP, Carrier Wave (Riot House Records), in Chicago with renowned recording engineer Steve Albini.”
Porcupine are on tour now and will be playing with Soul Asylum on December 27 at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN. Greg Norton, “mustachioed chef and onetime Hüsker Dü bass-player (Brooklyn Vegan),” delivers his unmistakable talent during each show, and also on the band’s new albums.
Throughout their US tour, they’ve joined Flesh Eaters and Mudhoney for several shows, as well as Flipper, Built To Spill and more. The band has played several iconic shows in the past with The Meat Puppets, The Posies and Babes in Toyland, just to name a few.
Recently, the band shared their new album, Carrier Wave (2019 Reissue), with two never-before-heard songs. The 2015 album was completely remixed and remastered; new artwork was also released along with the LP.
