PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
GIFT


Surprise—psychedelic Brooklyn, NY quintet GIFT unwrap what Rolling Stone calls “a portal to another dimension” on their debut album, Momentary Presence, out October 14, 2022.

 

On GIFT’S kaleidoscopic debut, bandleader TJ Freda & co. uncap the lens to project their vibrant spectrum of psych, krautrock, dream pop, post-punk, noise rock and electronica upon the vacant surfaces of the mind—inviting listeners to, in the words of countercultural guru Ram Dass, “be here now.”

 

“[It’s about] being with yourself, not by yourself,” says Freda. “You are never alone. You are always with yourself.” 

 

Momentary Presence exists, and that’s enough. There is no beginning and no end. From the percolating, in medias res intro of album opener “When You Feel It Come Around” through the swirling, gliding and expansive conclusion of “Here And Now (Time Floats By),” GIFT retains the element of cosmic surprise.

 

Treat yourself to Momentary Presence at finer record stores and streaming apps on October 14, 2022—only on Dedstrange.

Hooveriii

Los Angeles psych-rock Hooveriii (pronounced "Hoover Three") shares first take of the album by way of A Round Of Applause's opening track, "See." The band's Bert Hoover notes, " "See'  is about trying not to take life for granted. Some things are easier said than done. It's our first song to feature Anna Wallace singing along with us and it came together rather seamlessly. It was a pretty bare bones jangle jam until the band filled it with ear candy."

Though created in large part by founder Bert Hoover, Hooveriii has grown to include Gabe Flores (lead guitar and vocals), Kaz Mirblouk (bass and synths), James Novick (synths), and Owen Barrett (drums).

Hooveriii derived the album title from the late-80's Roky Erickson song "Click Your Finger Applauding the Play." "That's too much of a mouthful," Hoover qualified. "My title, A Round of Applause, just came one day, and we were like, 'Yo, that sound like a Gentle Giant record.' "

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
DOUGIE POOLE

A country songwriter from Brooklyn's indie underground, Dougie Poole blurs the lines between genre and generation on his third solo album, The Rainbow Wheel of Death. Rooted in sharp songwriting, Poole's golden baritone, and the organic sounds of a live-in-the-studio band, it's a classic-sounding record for the modern world, stocked with songs that make room for everything from old-school synthesizers to contemporary storytelling.

With The Rainbow Wheel of Death, Dougie Poole breathes new life into country music, retaining the acclaimed elements of his previous work - drum machines, acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and his deep-set voice - while pushing toward something warm, organic, and prismatic.
