Dead Leaf Echo LiveInPhilly 10/19/22
Brooklyn’s Dead Leaf Echo is a music/art collective that released their debut LP Thought and Language in 2013. That premier album was strongly influenced by many 4AD acts, brought into sharp focus by the mixing of This Mortal Coil’s John Fryer (Lush, NIN, Depeche Mode) and featuring artwork by 4ADs legendary designer, V23’s Vaughan Oliver (Pixies, Bauhaus), which further enhanced their strong aesthetic connections to that label. The band maintains a distinctive ethos–embracing their idols, while still forging their own sound.
Their second LP, Beyond Desire, coming October 13th via Papercup Music finds them working with legendary My Bloody Valentine engineer Guy Fixsen (MBV, WIRE) and Jorge Elbreht (Ariel Pink, No Joy, Frankie Rose, Violens, Lansing-Drieden) with artwork from Timothy O’Donnell (another 4AD design alumni) at Mexican Summer’s Gary’s Electric studio in Greenpoint.
See them perform some blistering Rock n Roll at Ortliebs in Philadelphia on 10/19/2022 – and a video from the night over on the Youtube page. They were joined on the night by Brief Candles, Frend and Droopies.
