NYC newest power-poppers tenterhooks are recording their first effort ‘Meanwhile…in another part of town’ at Brooklyn’s [the end] studio (Dirty Projectors, Ra Ra Riot) with James Pertusi (Fox Japan, Ditty Committee, Missing Teens) producing.
They will appear with The Wharton Tiers Ensemble, and Baby Spiders October 28th at Bowery Electric.
A few years ago when my mom visited Ann Arbor, I dragged her down to my studio to casually record a fews songs (karaoke style). She can REALLY sing and had her own radio show in Cuba before the revolution! She’s backed by a track I found of the U.S. Marine Corps playing the Cuban National anthem (obviously when we were still speaking to the nearby island). Have a listen!
Gun Lake – Lovely songs, w/ a lovely voice, plaintive and wistful as it gets. Mark Fain writes beautiful songs, lovingly recorded (by Ben Collins of Lightning Love and Hounds Below) with aching harmonies from Ben and Aaron Diehl (also of Lightning Love).
FRIDAY FEB. 5TH @ Elbow Room w/ LIGHTNING LOVE AND THE DAREDEVIL CHRISTOPHER WRIGHT and GREG MCINTOSH Listen @ MySpace
“…and it captures that stretched and blown apart haunted aura of banshee tones and head-swimming echoes (“Lord is my Gun”) like some brooding broad shouldered ghost might check you through a plate-glass window…” Jeff Milo
Here’s a couple of tracks from their latest release
