Dr. Martens Presents: Elbows
Zenizen, Space Captain
Brooklyn, NY, 11211
This event is 21 and over
Max Schieble, better known as Elbows, is a songwriter, vocalist, producer, and multi-instrumentalist creating a time-warping fusion of jazz, hip hop, electronic, and psychedelic pop. New York’s The Deli Magazine described him as “[flexing] through genres, bending tastes and traditions and creating something that sounds totally fresh." Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Elbows is currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
On January 26th, Elbows returns with Sycamore EP. Building on the sonic stylings of his 2017 debut, the Corduroy EP, Sycamore sees Elbows home in on a more singular mood, combining damp synth pads and 808s with woodsy percussion and acoustic instrumentation. Songs segue from outros to interludes to new songs like wandering thoughts on a walk home. Beginning with a long rewind, Sycamore takes listeners on a journey through Elbows' past, with vivid verses recounting his youth in The Bay, soured relationships, and growing up sibling-less. The EP serves as the next installment of material culled from coast-spanning recording sessions in San Francisco and New York, during which Elbows amassed a body of work chronicling his foggy Bay Area upbringing.
Zenizen was created by Opal Hoyt who was born in Alaska and raised between Vermont, Jamaica, Washington DC and Brooklyn. She found herself infatuated with writing songs and creating musical landscapes with an emphasis on all things soulful. Minnie Riperton, Mariah Carey, London Nu-jazz is where she came from and ended up. Since heading to Australia for the second time to write/record the band's debut EP, she has been back in New York simultaneously playing shows and working on the band's 'vaguely seasonal' full-length. The EP, 'Australia' Deluxe is now out on vinyl courtesy of Don Giovanni Records and includes remixes from DJ Bruce, Suzi Analogue, Vulture Street Tape Gang, and Black Spade.
