Brooklyn group Salt Cathedral used to go by the name Il Abanico, in case you thought their expansive, multi-instrumentalist pop rang a bell.
Fresh from touring the US with Hundred Waters and Freelance Whales, the five-piece of Juliana Ronderos, Tommy Hartman, Stefan Bildy, Silvio Vega and Nicolas Losada have shared their most recent track 'Take Me To The Sea'.
It's similar in approach to the work of Hundred Waters, actually. In the sense that these two bands' members trade instruments and share ideas at a constant rate, they're almost identical beings.

The genesis of Gold Lake began in Spain when Carlos and Lua met in Carlos' hip night club in Madrid in the midst of the Spanish capital's music scene. Discovering a mutual love of the 60s and 70s bands from the West Coast, the Laurel Canyon bands, as well as the atmospheres Eno created for Bowie in the 70s the two began writing music together. They soon decamped to Brooklyn and started Gold Lake first as a duo, and then transforming into a trio after recruiting Dave Burnett on drums. They have toured consistently since their formation playing out in NYC as well as at festivals including LA's Culture Collide Festival, NXNE festival in Toronto, Northside Festival in NY and Austin's SXSW. In addition to supporting the Lumineers and Midlake the band have supported Basia Bulat, Peter and the Wolf, Ivan & Alyosha and Nada Surf.
With Spin calling their single “majestic”, Gold Lake’s debut album, mixed by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty) will be out on November 4th.
"Gold Lake are arresting from their name alone. In an era when guitar music fluctuates between dole- queue-realism and avant complexity, it's refreshing to hear something so effortlessly beautiful." Clash Magazine
“Lua Rios' vocals ... sound like the stuff of Divine Inspiration." Spin
Brooklyn four-piece Young Unknowns weave driving 90's flecked indie rock with luscious production, crowned with guitarist/vocalist Meredith Meyer's sensual yet wary musings on the complications of love and the human condition. The band's debut EP You Are A Young Unknown was produced by indie rock veteran Bill Racine (Rogue Wave, Mates of State). Young Unknowns' latest new single "I Want to Lose" is off of their upcoming new EP due in late 2013.
