November 14, 2011 - Several new fantastic releases to announce for 2011. Tony Khalife "Book of Changes", Monstrauss "Think Tank", and SouthernSwimbait.com "Southern Trout Eaters" DVD. Recording sessions in progress for Helen Loo, Pathetic Honey, The Left Hand Side, among others. So 2012 should have its share of great material as well. Bobby Vega, Chris Rossbach, and Prairie Prince recently cut a track for MTD Acoustic Bass as well which will be released at NAMM.
July 9, 2011 - Tony Khalife "Book of Changes" in production. More forthcoming from Jeff Titus. Soul Patch alumns Ryan McIntyre and Jason Mendelson working on a new album at the Toothless Monkey studio in Boulder, CO. Toothless artists Bobby Vega (with Zero featuring Steve Kimock), Seconds On End, and Howdy!, among other great bands will be playing Head To Head Music Fetsival in Redway CA August 12th and 13th this summer. Also, check out Bay Area Recorders' The Africa Project 2010 featuring our good buddies Chris Zinardi, Derek Bodkin, Garrin Benfield, and Michael Manring. Derek's banjo version of Amazing Grace is worth the price alone and all profits go to aid in education efforts in Ghana and South Africa. Speaking of charity production, "The Left Hand Side" sales benefit the Homeless Action Coalition SF, and the album is getting great reviews! Last but not least, check out Tony Khalife Group drummer Celso Alberti's Brazilian Drums (loops and samples) which got this incredible review in Guitar Player:
March 26, 2011 - In the last few months we have finished two albums (which will hopefully be out soon) by young South Bay phenoms "Monstrauss" and the East Bay's wonderful folk/bluegrass with-a-touch-of polka group "The Skinny", as well as finishing a new single "What We Don't Know" by Jeff Titus featuring bass legend Michael Manring. The song is a beautiful tribute to the late fingerstyle guitar genius Michael Hedges, who remains one of the Monkey's all-time favorite musicians.
September 29, 2010 Update - Toothless Monkey Music and its sister studio Bodydeep Music proudly present a new release by a new project "The Left Hand Side".

Also, in the last few months we recorded the first album for the Dead Winter Carpenters, featuring members of Montana Slim String Band.

Besides the polished, worldly Derek Trucks Band’s Songlines album, Shadowland is better than anything I’ve heard in the jam band genre recently. Review by Entatty at F.U.T. - May 2006
This is no ordinary jam band--it's a whole new way of living the musical dream. These players are
