Kurt von Stetten

Boston's DIY indie rock revisionist

Kind words from Bishop & Rook on Kurt von Stetten's latest, "Animals"

The fine folks at Bishop & Rook have written a really nice review of Kurt von Stetten's latest release, "Animals." They write, "Perhaps all of these records are annual invitations into a complex mind of a musical intellect, a mind full of radical ideas of a broader picture too ambiguous for a casual listener to understand. But discernible and eloquent nonetheless." When we think KvS, we think discernible and eloquent. Thanks for the kind words!More News >

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.
