Los Lobos’ Steve Berlin to Produce New Deer Tick Record
Los Lobos multi-instrumentalist Steve Berlin will produce the new Deer Tick record. Berlin and the group are currently working on the studio project in Portland, OR. Berlin is a member of Diamond Rugs along with Deer Tick’s John McCauley and Robbie Crowell.
McCauley posted the following about his current plans:
1. Recording a new record. Steve Berlin (member of Los Lobos, The Blasters, & more) is producing. It sounds great. I’m proud of the songs. Very proud. Steve is the man.
2. Eating a bunch of good food. Habenero peppers are usually involved.
3. Having weird dreams. Last night I dreamt I directed a porno that focused around a one-eyed Ken doll.
4. Enjoying Portland, OR. Haven’t gotten homesick once. Very friendly people live here.
Berlin will perform with the Deer Tick members when Diamond Rugs takes the stage at Partisan records’ SXSW party on March 13.
