Alan cross has described “Those That Know,” the first track off Broken But Not Undone—the new LP by Kurt von Stetten—thusly, “This song is erratic, insecure, passionate and sweaty all at once. Gloriously chaotic.” Wow. We’d say that describes the whole album… it also sorta describes Kurt when he’s doing the BMX thing. But that’s another story…
Just one week after the release of his latest LP—Broken But Not Undone—our own Kurt von Stetten is back with yet another project. Yikes. The track Edith is the result of a collaboration born on Twitter (!) with Toronto/Guelph-based band Bonnie Trash. Kurt is heavily featured on this first track; look for a collaborative EP from the whole gang under the moniker Lynden Snakes in early 2014. Stream above, download for free over on Bandcamp. Enjoy!
We had quite a day yesterday! We launched this new site, release the new Kurt von Stetten album Broken But Not Undone, and capped things off with a short (but sweet) acoustic appearance on WMBR’s Pipeline show. Listen to audio of the entire show here (KvS comes on about 14mins in). Big thanks to Mr. Jeff Breeze!
Few things are harder to wrangle in the land of DIY than a firm release date for vinyl. You give ample time, even push back the release date to be safe. And then the test pressings take longer than you’d hoped and two weeks before your release date you’re told it’ll be another 3 weeks until you get the records. SO.. we’re beyond excited to get the new KvS record—Broken But Not Undone—out to the world, just going to be a few days before we can send the vinyl out (complete w/ Kurt’s homemade jackets). Please don’t be deterred!!! We’ll gladly send you the MP3s in the meantime if you purchase the vinyl. It’s a good one, now come get it.
We’re more than a little excited about this one. Kurt’s second of the calendar year, Broken, but not undone is a return to the sort of homemade indie rock that’s been lost in the din of quasi-talented folks with way too many tools at their disposal. Yeah, I said it. It’s a good one, we promise. #fuckbobpollard
