Stone Darling- Free Download + upcoming show

The fuzzy guitars and soft, pillowy vocals of Stone Darling paint the picture of a feather drifting in the warm Southern California sun. Their timeless sound is a bit Fleetwood Mac with a modern edge. The band has written all of the songs for their upcoming EP, but since they are doing it all on their own, they are running a pledge via Kickstarter for the money needed to finish it up. The lovely ladies will be playing a show at the infamous Bardot next Wednesday the 26th. If you haven't been, it's next to Avalon on the right hand side...just look for Jeff, the Jack Sparrow-esque doorman.

For now, you can score a free download of their dreamy, romantic song "All I Wanna Do"...and if you like what you hear, donate to the cause on Kickstarter.

Headless Horseman play Cameo Gallery with Com Truise on 01.21

Headless Horseman is a band full of contradictions. While much of members Fareed Sajan and Conner O’Neill's repertoire contains the intimate spookiness of Icelandic bands like múm and Sigur Ros, there's also an immediacy in their recordings at home in their Brooklyn surroundings, bringing Sufjan Stevens and even Sleigh Bells to mind in songs like Sh8ker and Growing. Achieving large, sing-along moments over sparse guitar work, then moving without pause to mouse-like whispers rising over blaring electronics, this band deals exclusively in musical and emotional dichotomies. It makes sense that fellow Wesleyan alum Himanshu Suri of Das Racist manages the duo, a man who is simultaneously de- constructing and re-constructing music by similarly forcing disparate ideas to work together. Constructing their large palette from found objects, Headless Horseman conveys a childlike sense of musical discovery in their songs where the listener feels as surprised at the messy but endearing results as the band does. Making generous use of kitchen utensils and collage sound editing techniques, Headless Horseman has managed to make a fully realized musical environment sound like an intimate experience. Check them out with the other bizarre electro kinds in Com Truise at Cameo on January 21. - Mike Levine
