Brooklyn's Dead Leaf Echo is an music/art collective that released their debut LP "Thought and Language" in 2013. The album had clear 4AD influences as it was mixed by John Fryer (Lush, NIN, Depeche Mode) with artwork by the label's legendary designer V23's Vaughan Oliver (Pixies, Bauhaus). Their latest EP "Strawberry.Skin" released in 2017 saw them working with Monte Vallier (Weekend, Wax Idols)and Guy Fixsen (MBV, WIRE) + Jorge Elbreht (Ariel Pink, No Joy) at Mexican Summer's studio in Greenpoint. They just returned from SXSW and a European tour this past May. The new LP is to be released on September 29th via Papercup Music. DLE has done multiple national tours over the past 3 years resulting in over 160 shows and taking them to SXSW, CMJ, NXNE, Northside Festival and everywhere in between. They've toured with Slumberland bands Weekend, Lorelei and played SXSW supporting Modern English, The Ocean Blue and the Warlocks and on the West Coast playing with Beach Fossils and the Telescopes at The Echo.

SILENT AGE (members of Population and Wingtips)
Post-punk, new romantic, goth from Chicago.
Last Fall, Ganser’s This Feels Like Living saw the band exploring new edges of their post-punk roots. Keeping their ambivert energy, they began investigating more angular territory. Both TFLL and the advance a/b single Pyrrhic Victory saw positive reception and premieres from outlets like Consequence of Sound, Stereogum, Afropunk, CVLT Nation, and others. Since then, the song “Strategies for Living” was featured along with Mount Eerie and others on Gezellig Record’s compilation Is There Another Language benefitting the ACLU, featured in Pitchfork, Spin, AV Club, and other publications. Currently they are at work on new material for their first full length, Odd Talk.
