Dead Heart Bloom - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Dead Heart Bloom
Dead Heart Bloom is comprised of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Boris Skalsky, guitarist Paul Wood (both formerly of Phaser) and drummer Jason Molina (formerly of Longwave). With tracks reminiscent of classics such as Urban Hymns by The Verve and Ladies and Gentlemen… by Spiritualized, the 10 latest songs recorded by Dead Heart Bloom mark their full realization as a band. This collection serves as a logical, yet more mature follow-up to their prior releases, including their album Chelsea Diaries, which was nominated for the Shortlist Prize alongside acclaimed works by Wilco, Arcade Fire and Spoon.

The band meshes visionary lyrics and dreamy melodies with warm, stirring lead vocals and expertly-mixed harmonies. Recorded and produced by Carlos Anthony Molina of Mercury Rev in Kingston, New York, the songs swell and soar at all the right moments. Molina’s production effort with Dead Heart Bloom is notably inspired by his recording experiences and friendship with iconic producer Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev, Tame Impala, MGMT).

"Our favorite albums have always combined classic songwriting with cinematic atmosphere”, says guitarist Wood. “This band has a natural inclination for big choruses and instrumental effects. The new tracks are a great balance of live energy, sweeping arrangements and a Wall of Sound production we've been building up to over the past few years."

Looked at as whole, these new songs are a testament to the disappearing craft of album-making. With this refreshing combination of classic songwriting and deeply memorable hooks, Dead Heart Bloom reset the blueprint for analog emotions in a digital world.
Gold Lake - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Gold Lake
Brooklyn band Gold Lake have just finished recording what will be their debut album, mixed by Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, The Walkmen, Father John Misty). Founding members, Carlos and Lua, met in Carlos' hip night club in Madrid in the midst of the Spanish capital's music scene. Shortly after moving to Brooklyn they met Dave Burnett and started Gold Lake, playing Filter Magazine's Culture Collide Festival in LA, NXNE festival in Toronto, etc… soon after starting the band.
