Red Bull Music Academy Presents Sacred Bones 10 Year Anniversary

21 years and over
Throughout its decade of existence, Brooklyn-based record label Sacred Bones has released music that affirms the dual implications of their name – music that is both luminous and haunting, divine and macabre. Founded by Caleb Braaten and now co-run by Taylor Brode, their vast catalog swerves between those two poles while maintaining a remarkable emotional consistency, creating a new sort of gothic Americana assuming disparate forms via power electronics, experimental folk, psychedelic rock and narcotic pop. This balance between imposing darkness and cleansing light will be on display at Sacred Bones 10 Year Anniversary, taking place as part of the Red Bull Music Academy Festival New York 2017, with performances by various factions of the label’s familial community of music-makers including Jenny Hval, Zola Jesus, Marissa Nadler, The Men, Moon Duo (performing with film director Jim Jarmusch for the first time), Psychic Ills, Uniform, Rose McDowall, and Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Edley ODowd featuring Blanck Mass.
