Kurt von Stetten is killing it! On the heels of composing the new theme for the Lost at Home Podcast, a fantastic interview by the fab folks at Visions of the Unexcused—entitled “The Last Renaissance Man: Ten Questions with Kurt von Stetten“—explores Kurt’s creative endeavors from music to visual art to BMX and beyond. And of course there’s a couple mentions of Mr. Bob Pollard… Oh, and check the latest in a string of Vans videos using Kurt’s music: one celebrating a Vans tattoo exhibition/competition and another promoting a Vans ‘Zine workshop. The videos feature “Codify” and “He’s No Writer” (respectively) from Kurt’s 2011 classic, Cyclops. Check it:
You read right. A couple weeks ago our own Kurt von Stetten held a contest on Twitter: he asked followers to post short videos of themselves listening to his latest release, Animals. For those that followed through, Kurt would then craft an original song about the fan. One lucky winner, Ravi Jain, got his prize late list night. It’s called “No Jain No Gain.” Check it all out here! Enjoy!
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!
Animals, the latest home-brewed effort from Boston DIY wunderkind Kurt von Stetten is on sale now! Downloads only this time around kids (Obamacare is hitting KvS industries pretty hard). Grab it here or over on iTunes or Bandcamp. And while you’re at it check out his latest video for the track We Were So Very Wrong. Enjoy! (And tell your friends!)
The fine folks over at Examiner.com and Popa’s Tunes have some nice things to say about Animals, the new album by Kurt von Stetten. The album comes out Tuesday 9/30 and is Kurt’s 9th full length in as many years. Damn. And as Popa would say, this one is an album filled with expansive, full-bodied Indie rock songs. We couldn’t agree more.
It’s that time a year again folks! Our own Kurt von Stetten has a new release ready for the fall! It’s called Animalsand 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!!
