Grammy Award winning Dave Fridmann, longtime producer of The Flaming Lips and the album that defined a generation, MGMT’s Oracular Spectacular, continues to be the Energizer Bunny of the production world. He recently placed his sonic sounds in a variety of settings:  the wonderful pop rock of the debut album by the UK’s  Wolf Gang (Elektra/ Atlantic) and OK Go’s The Blue Colour Of The Sky (Paradute/ Capitol), the rock of Thursday’s No Devolucion (Epitaph) and Brandon Boyd’s Solo album (Epic), the indie art of Quasi’s American Gong (Kill Rock Stars) and Parts and Labor’s Constant Future (Jagjaguar), the psychedelic stylings of MGMT’s Congratulations (Columbia), Tame Impala’s Innerspeaker (Modular/ Universal), Neon Indian’s highly anticipated second album, and the collaboration between The Flaming Lips and Neon Indian. 

And because there isn’t enough time in the day for Dave to be able to work with everyone who would like to work with him, he and Doug Rogers of East West Sounds created The Dark Side, a virtual representation of Dave’s sonic sounds.
