Boston's DIY indie rock revisionist

Kurt von Stetten "Animals" out 9/30!

It's that time a year again folks! Our own Kurt von Stetten has a new release ready for the fall! It's called Animals and it finds Kurt coloring way outside the lines and conjuring up animals of many different stripes—some strange, some familiar, and all so undeniably human. His 9th record in nearly as many years, this synth-laden fuzzed out set will be released Tuesday, September 30—digital only. Stay tuned for more! And follow Kurt on Twitter for additional content, giveaways, and stream-of-conscious CNN dissing. And stream We Were So Very Wrong!!

Kurt von Stetten began experimenting with music and recordings in Boston during the summer of 1996. Interested at first only with art school infused themes and postmodern/absurdist noise collages, von Stetten gradually pivoted away from academia and found freedom in alt/indie rock. 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. Since 2006 he has released a full-length album every year on which he plays every instrument (Guitar, cocals, cello, keys, drums/percussion, bass and more).

Kurt also plays drums with The Longwalls and is the former front man of the Drama Queens.
