Part Time Punks
Several years ago Dark Entries reissued the debut LP by ELEVEN POND. Long sought after by collectors, the Rochester, NY band only released a single LP in their time together before dissolving into obscurity. Their sound–a merging of post punk, dark dance and synthpop full of melodic arrangements–reflected the originality of gifted songwriters who met in art school with a shared interest in 4AD and Factory Records. Fronted by Jeff Gallea, now living in LA and a near-constant figure the past two years at at the club, PTP is honored to offer this stage to the stunning band, who only now are receiving the attention they deserved over two decades ago...
SOME EMBER are a dark lush landscape of brooding, swirling post punk cold wave minimalism, all pulsing muted synths, spare percussion, shimmery atmospheres, thick, crumbling industrial swells, hushed melancholic melodies, all blurred into a murky, washed out dirge pop dreamscape. These are the sounds of low-life, black celebration and disintegration.
