"DLE bring you Dream-Pop!"
-FILTER Magazine

"Words like ethereal, atmospheric and dreamy all come to mind after a spin of Dead Leaf Echo's Truth, and while all these descriptions are apt (and have been used repeatedly in other Dead Leaf Echo reviews), it's safe to say that the band could similarly be described as heavy, raucous - or simply, loud-as-fuck."
-H Magazine

"Some of the best live music in the city"
-Time Out NY

"We love Dead Leaf Echo's dreamy pop"
-The L Magazine
Lorelei - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Lorelei began in 1990 as a 5-piece in Washington, DC in the heyday of the city's indie scene, but quickly stripped down to 3 members in 1992 after one single. Lorelei released several recordings on Slumberland Records, including the 1994 LP, "Everyone Must Touch the Stove", plus a few things for other labels. Over the years, Lorelei often played live with our Slumberland labelmates - the Ropers, Small Factory, Whorl, Velocity Girl, Honeybunch, Jane Pow, the Swirlies, and the Lily's - and with the likes of the Wedding Present, Slowdive, Bailter Space, Unrest, Laika, Boyracer, and Labradford. Following the release of "Everyone Must Touch the Stove" and after playing together for almost 6 years, Lorelei members decided to move to different coasts and disband in 1996. From there, Lorelei members went off to pursue other projects including LU, Chessie, Camping, and RDK. Following their hiatus as a band, Lorelei began working together again in 2003, culminating in Lorelei's first release in eight years, the "Informed By The Future" 12" on Matt's Textilesounds imprint. In 2006, Lorelei's members found themselves back in Washington, DC and began playing and writing together again. Lorelei returned for their first show in 10 years on October 25th, 2006 and has played occasionally since. Lorelei headed into the studio in December of 2007 to begin work on a series of new recordings for release in September, 2012 as "Enterprising Sidewalks" on Slumberland Records.
