Mass Gothic is Massachusetts-bred, New York-based singer/songwriter’ Noel Heroux’s self-titled Sub Pop debut.
Written and recorded at home over four months during the winter of
2013–2014, it’s a stunning reminder of not just Noel's own remarkable
talents as singer and
songwriter, but how unbridled creativity can sound and feel. Noel says, “I did my best to let go, and what came out was pure, uncut. It reminded me of the first few times I made music, when I was a young kid. I didn’t set any rules and I had zero expectations.”
The result is an expansive, often exhilarating set of guitar driven pop that required very little editing when it was done. Additional mixing was provided by Chris Coady (Beach House, TV on the Radio) with mastering done by Greg Calbi (Father John Misty, Tame Impala) at Sterling Sound, NY.
