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!
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.
Ryan’s Smashing Life has long been one of, if not the, best music blogs in Boston. So we’re pleased as punch that Kurt von Stetten’sBroken But Not Undone has made the blog’s best of list for 2013! It’s an impressive list; we’re proud to be included. Check it out.
Love is growing for the Kurt von Stetten / Bonnie Trash collaboration! Their first single, Edith, was song of the day on New Lease and featured on Quick Before it Melts. Meanwhile, the fine folks at Grayowl Point wrote, “Edith is rough, loud, and full of energy, and should be a welcome treat to anyone who is looking for something with a little more passion.” Nice. Stream below, download over on Bandcamp. And look out for the release of their collaborative EP, Lynden Snakes, in early in 2014.
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…
