Playback
Crooked Bangs sings en français, Western Medical pulls plug on the big machine, and UtopiaFest finds a soul-stirring hero ankle-deep in the mud.
Music Column  October 5, 2012, by Kevin Curtin
"...When drummer Phillip Gonzalez joined Crooked Bangs late last year, his urgent tempos turned their three-minute epics into tight two-and-a-half-minute blasts. At less than a year old, Crooked Bangs already polished off a sonically durable new LP – its second release – on new local label Western Medical Records from producer Mike McCarthy..."

I Could Be So Happy
Heartless Bastards vocal quake Erika Wennerstrom moves The Mountain from Austin
Music Story  January 30, 2009, by Audra Schroeder
"...In 2008, she returned to the studio with local superproducer Mike McCarthy and a band he'd wrangled for her: former Trail of Dead drummer Doni Schroader and Billy White on bass, banjo, and occasionally guitar. It was a new experience for Wennerstrom to record alongside people she barely knew, and she admits working with McCarthy was daunting initially since she'd never worked with a producer...."

Amateurs and Old Friends
Tom McCarthy works both angles in his winning third film. Make that Win Winning.
Screens Story  April 8, 2011, by Joe O'Connell
"...Thus the seed was planted that grew into Win Win, a comic drama co-conceived by Tom McCarthy and Joe Tiboni. Yes, it's about high school wrestling, but Win Win digs just as deeply into the human psyche as director McCarthy's critically acclaimed, brooding films The Station Agent and The Visitor..."

Music Column  August 4, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Not in a puff of smoke, but behind the wheel of a moving truck filled with equipment once used to forge breakout LPs by Spoon and Trail of Dead. Yes, Austin, Mike McCarthy's moved his operation to Nashville...."

A Thing Called Divine Fits
Spoon man Britt Daniel develops Divine Fits
Music Story  August 24, 2012, by Austin Powell
"...After cracking Bill-board's Top 10 with the vintage-pop perfection of 2007's Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga, Spoon opted out of using longtime producer Mike McCarthy for 2010's self-produced Transference, the Austin institution's most polarizing/provocative work in a decade. Then Daniel, now 41, moved to Los Angeles, putting Spoon on the back burner and digging back into old AC/DC...."

Glimmer Twins
Sabrina Ellis and Andrew Cashen instigate A Giant Dog Pile
Music Story  May 5, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"..."The common denominator is the songwriting and vocal team," agrees Mike McCarthy, producing A Giant Dog for a third go-round. "But they're all getting more into record production and listening to different records for ideas, rather than just saying, 'Hey, we're this guitar/bass/drums/vocals rock band..."

Music Story  October 29, 2015, by Tim Stegall
"..."They really hit on something last year," agrees local producer Mike McCarthy, known for ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Spoon, Patty Griffin, the Heartless Bastards, and more, not to mention being the man behind Cokomo and the next A Giant Dog release.

Two bands joined at the lips – Sabrina Ellis
Music Story  February 15, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...Continuing the title pattern of earlier releases House and Fight, new full-length Bone upgrades the fivesome's feral take on oldies melodies with higher fidelity, courtesy of producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Crooked Bangs). Outta the garage and into the studio, Bone marks the first A Giant Dog LP that wasn't recorded in drummer Orville Neeley's garage...."

Be Real
Sound Team's major label debut has Capitol
Music Story  June 9, 2006, by Darcie Stevens
"...While Sound Team's first releases, 2000's countrified debut from Baird and Oliver and 2002's coloring-book soundtrack, Into the Lens, define DIY – complete with hand-drawn trading cards, CD-R art, and the aforementioned coloring book – the band obviously doesn't hand-ink hundreds of albums anymore. Where they used to record songs on a whim and put them to cassette, now a producer is always in order – Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead) this go-round...."

Another Saturday night at the bookstore, and some really awful TV
Music Column  August 20, 2004, by Christopher Gray
"...Instead, try the remaining members' new project, Beta Valentine, Saturday at the Red Eyed Fly... After remarking that "A Tiger Named Lovesick is better than the Rapture" (and how) at Sunday's Curiosa Festival in Houston, ...Trail of Dead producer Mike McCarthy let slip that Interscope has pushed back the noirish quartet's follow-up to 2002's epic Source Tags & Codes, which they recently returned from mixing in NYC, to January, thus making it the first major rock album of 2005..."

Playback: Trailer Space Closing October 31
Venue first, clubhouse second, and record store third. Trailer Space's constant free, all-ages concerts filled a void for up-and-coming Austin acts.
Music Column  October 15, 2015, by Kevin Curtin
"...A Giant Dog has inked a deal with Merge Records. The glammy Austin quintet, led by Andrew Cashen and Sabrina Ellis, releases its Mike McCarthy-produced third LP, Pile – featuring a cameo from Spoon's Britt Daniel – in 2016..."

Carson McHone
Music Review  November 8, 2018, by Doug Freeman
"...For fans following Carson McHone since 2015 debut LP Goodluck Man, the native honky-tonker's long-awaited sophmore album is somewhat of an inevitable letdown – not in quality but simply in offering little new material after three years. Then again, Carousel isn't necessarily intended for local listeners, but rather as a national introduction spotlighting a redo of the debut material, now with Mike McCarthy guiding production..."

Survive and advance
DAILY Sports  September 22, 2012, by Alex Dunlap
"...Sleeper Play: Packers WR Randall Cobb: If Cobb is available in your league, grab him. I like Cobb this week because I think it will be the kind of game where HC Mike McCarthy will have to get creative with his play calling and Cobb represents a versatile chess piece that must be accounted for in many different formations...."
