Deidre & The Dark
Before expanding her moniker, Deidre released her debut EP "Curious Parcel." Like a femme fatale who gets distracted and falls in love, it’s filled with vulnerability, pleasure, suspicion, and tragedy. Mixing sounds of the blues, gypsies, surf safaris, 60s a-go-go and more, she melds numerous influences into songs of love and horror - a totally new sound for the singer who also performs in Brooklyn bands Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion.
Curating and hosting conceptual parties at various venues in Brooklyn over the last year, Deidre began to harness her storytelling skills and style. She and her husband, producer David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion, MGMT's Time To Pretend), have started to capture and define that energy in these first few recordings, with much more to come.
The Teen Age
Formed in Brooklyn during the Winter of 2012, The Teen Age plays a mix of 70's punk and indie garage. Their song "Evil" was recorded at the new Silent Barn in Bushwick, BK and was produced by members of the group Ava Luna. Humming with youthful defiance and grounded in psych, the track serves as an exciting precursor to a debut EP currently in the works.
The Living Kills
"The Living Kills look, on the surface, like any other New York indie band waiting for its big break into the mainstream, but after one listen to 'Angels Without Faces,' it becomes evident that's not the case. Organs, synthesizers, ticking clocks and smoky male-and-female vocals make the group stand out from its peers...Faceless Angels (Past Futures) possesses new yet surprisingly nostalgic tracks." - Magnet Magazine
"These New York rocker's newest album features creeping organ, tons of noise and a great mix of '60s guitar nostalgia and modern shoe-gaze." -AOL Music/Spinner
"There's a splendor inside 'Angels Without Faces' that makes it distinguishable amongst the bands you just come to know. The intro is profound, determined and vigorous...It's as though The Living Kills, within the time of only a debut EP and this, have piled up a portfolio of confidence." - Ghost FM
"Listening to this Brooklyn band feels like an eerie dream, like there's a ghost lingering in their psychedelic rock. It's unlikely that any of the members of The Living Kills lived through the 60s, yet their music can be easily confused as something from that era. Many of today's up-and-coming bands, from Echo Park to Brooklyn, sound like the 60s, but not like this. The Living Kills sounds like The Doors and Jefferson Airplane. Their music is spooky and poetic, like an early Tim Burton movie." - BeatCrave.com
"This psych rock outfit experiments with electric keyboard drones and and live effects, spinning cult classic projections and a passionate frontman. The cool, dark feel of the music - echo-y and chilled - can turn quite loud and plowing, an enveloping vibe to revel in." - The Deli New York
Lorna Krier is one of the most versatile young keyboardists in New York performing music from experimental to pop on anything from analog synthesizers to toy pianos to Steinways. Ms. Krier has been described as “a pianist specializing in contemporary music, who has become an expert synthesizer player and is helping break down the boundary between new classical and indie rock” (Lukas Ligeti). Acting as an advocate for new music, she has worked with some of the nation’s finest young composers and performers to create exciting new works.
Since arriving in New York in 2006, she has been a founding member of many ensembles including the chamber-rock ensemble, Victoire, founded by composer Missy Mazzoli, which has been dubbed the “all-star, all-female quintet” (Time Out NY). They released their debut EP, A Door Into the Dark, on eMusic.com in 2009 and their first full-length album, Cathedral City with New Amsterdam Records Fall 2010 to critical acclaim. Lorna Krier has also co-founded the synthesizer project Love Like Deloreans, which released their self-titled EP on Friendly Ghost Recordings in 2009 and have performed throughout New York, Montreal, San Francisco, and Boston at festivals such as the Rooftop Films Festival, Knitting Factory’s NY Eye & Ear, City Sol, Brooklyn Arts Council's "Glitch Generation", Z-Arts! Festival in Zion, Utah, among others. Finally, the most recent project in which Ms. Krier has been initiated as a member is the genre-bending experimental improv group, Kaleidoscope Point, founded by composer-percussionist Lukas Ligeti.
Some highlights for this and recent seasons include the Philip Glass and JoAnne Akalaitis production of “The Bacchae” Shakespeare in the Park 2009, Victoire performance at the Bang on a Can Marathon 2009, a silent film sound exhibit with Victoire and a Composer Showcase featuring Lukas Ligeti both at the Whitney Art Museum, an appearance on the “Wordless Music Series”, two live performances on WNYC’s New Sounds and Soundcheck, MATA Festival 2010 and MATA Interval Series 2009 performances featuring composer Tristan Perich, guest keyboardist for the award-winnning Present Music Ensemble in Milwaukee, WI, Western Vinyl Release party with composer Christopher Tignor, the New Albion Festival at Bard’s Summerscape Series 2008 with the experimental rock group Slow Six, two performances for Rooftop Films Festival, City Sol, and Imagine Science Films Festival.
