Kurt von Stetten

Boston's DIY indie rock revisionist

Much new music on the way!

Making making making. That's what we do! Here's the latest... The new Longwalls album, tentatively titled The Gold Standard, is nearing completion. 11 songs (!) are in the hopper over at Bridge Sound and Stage and we're close to mixing time. Look for a fall release. In the meantime, the new solo album by Dan LondonI Will Take You Back—will be released this summer. Produced with long-time co-conspirator Mike Quinn at Moontower Studio (Q Division), IWTYB is a late 70s drive-in movie sort of record that takes you back in time. And of course our DIY wunderkind Kurt von Stetten is always at work. Follow along on his stellar music blog. His latest demo—I work figuratively (mostly… mostly)—is an absolutely wonderful bit of garage-tastic power pop. He's got another record in him for sure, no word on timing just yet. More soon, stay tuned!More News >

Kurt von Stetten began experimenting with music and recordings in Boston during the summer of 1996. During this time, he began to experience terrible bouts of “self proclaimed” bromhidrosis (look it up), forcing him to record alone in his bedroom. For a period of 10 years, von Stetten holed up in his bedroom studio and learned how to play guitar and drums by recording himself over and over again.

He has since released a full-length album every year for the last 8 years on which he plays every instrument. He also plays drums with The Longwalls and is the former front man of the Drama Queens.
