Deleted Scenes

Deleted Scenes

Deleted Scenes, a four-piece indie band from DC, released its first full-length album, Birdseed Shirt, in 2009, fifteen years after meeting in grade school. It was recorded mostly in group houses across the East Coast with producer L. Skell (The Rude Staircase). Pitchfork praised its "thoughtful existentialism and strange, drowsy downers" (8.0 score), and NPR called it "playfully unpredictable and totally infectious."

They toured heavily in a converted bread van, playing 300 self-booked shows across the country, and road-testing the songs that make up their new album, Young People's Church of the Air (Sockets Records, Sept 6, 2011). It was recorded at the Garden Center in Hockessin, DE, with Nick Krill (The Spinto Band) and Birdseed Shirt producer L. Skell.

Young People's Church of the Air is fuzzy and warped, inspired by the cassette warble of Southeast Asian psych-pop. Its lyrics are darkly hopeful, exploring family, religion, death and joy. The songs are disparate, but unified, deriving their rhythmic feels from 80s pop, R&B, surf rock, dark funk, and Go-Go. They began as fruity loops-based bedroom jams, which were then introduced into the band environment, taking on a live energy and band identity. The album contains a mixture of studio sounds and home-recorded lo-fi noise.

Deleted Scenes is Daniel Scheuerman (guitar, vocals), Matt Dowling (bass, keyboard), Dominic Campanaro (guitar, keyboards, samples), and Ricardo Lagomasino (drums). They have shared the stage with Cursive, Wild Nothing, Abe Vigoda, Black Kids, The Antlers, Medications, Akron/Family, Matt and Kim, and others. They have played SXSW, CMJ, and Pop Montreal.

Krill is a trio from somerville, MA, who play off-kilter little songs about dogs, spirit(s), and dogspirits. they aren't very tall, so don't expect anyone very tall.


"...Tranced out, drone-y, repetitious, atmospheric psych with some Hawkwind-esque synth textures over the top. Dare we compare them to an instrumental hybrid of Can and Hawkwind? We dare." - Lance Barresi, Permanent Records

Palehound (Solo)

Palehound is the latest project from Yonkers, NY based singer/songwriter extraordinaire Ellen Kempner. Writing and performing her own songs since she was 10 years old, Kempner has played in bands and solo, developing a knack for songwriting in the process. Kempa's self-recorded "Dog on Crutches" was released early 2012, a collection of smart lo-fi indie rock and that sticks in your head. Late last year during her freshman year of college, Kempner decided to create a revolving band, and Palehound was born. Her debut "Bent Nail EP" is due out on October 22nd, 2013 via Exploding In Sound Records.
