Whirr, Nothing, Dead Leaf Echo
1120 Manhattan Avenue
Brooklyn, NY, 11222
This event is 21 and over
Northern California's WHIRR (formerly Whirl) make an effects-laden noise that is as blatantly loud and heavy as it is beautiful, giving the sounds of 90's shoegaze a widescreen update for the post-millennial era. The young sextet's wall of lush guitars, breathy vocals, dreamy synth and thunderous drumming propel listeners into a near-cinematic realm where instantly catchy melodies and emotional, enveloping atmospheres hang in perfect balance. The group's debut album, Pipe Dreams, was released by Tee Pee Records this past March.
"NOTHING is a band of musicians from the over crowded inner city of Philadelphia. They create a serene funnel of noise. The vocals are ambient, but barely audible with lyrics that preach of broken homes, lost youth, and time spent in isolation. The guitars bleed and blend into a single powerful wave, and the rhythms create a thunderous repeating pattern that puts you in a seemingly opiate induced slumber. You'll only be awoken by each climax after haunting climax that is carefully placed in every track."
Dead Leaf Echo
Dead Leaf Echo. The words are rich literature. Nabakov. Conjured images of drugged passions fading into nihilistic apprehension. An Art Project blossomed in 2006, DLE has matured rapidly since it's birth now unveiling their unique style of Nouveau Wave.
DLE has released numerous EP's, Singles and Remixes in addition to their noir film videos and heavy tour schedule prompting Time Out NY to call them "Some of the best live music in the city" The band just played Escape to NY festival and SXSW last year on bills with The Psychedelic Furs and A Place to Bury Strangers and rocked sold out shows last year opening for 90′s shoegaze legends Chapterhouse and Ulrich Schnauss.
Dead Leaf Echo's previous work with Ulrich Schnauss on their Pale Fire EP has now caught the attention of famed 4AD producer John Fryer (Cocteau Twins, This Mortal Coil) who has mixed their debut LP "Thought and Language" to be released early this year. A concept album that follows the conception and birth of a child and his discovery of thought and language.
By incorporating elements of ambient, baroque, dream-pop, shoegaze, new wave, and goth, and crafting every aspect of their sound and vision, they remain one of the few left willing to work on high-art as concept. Chiming guitars in twin stereo reverbs with shimmering vocals and silky basslines. Dead Leaf Echo runs the gamut of what is now possible within the contemporary underground by running at the forefront of the indie NYC music scene.
