5 Questions With is a new series spotlighting some of Brooklyn’s most exciting and influential creatives.
We wouldn’t fault you for not recognizing Matthew Koshak — after all, he’s almost always been the guy backstage with the band or (during showtime) behind the mixing boards. Specifically, the boards of bands like Girls and Smith Westerns, both of which he’s toured with over the last handful of years. (Don’t worry, though, he still spends plenty of time in the studio with his own music.) After the jump, some of his favorite picks from the neighborhood.
