DM Stith with Inlets, Silje Nes
Tuesday 06.15.2010, Doors at 8:00 PM, Starts at 8:30 PM, $7, 18+
Mentored by Sufjan Stevens, who signed Stith to his Asthmatic Kitty label, DM Stith makes music with cellos and pianos but also the creaking of wooden doors, has the uncomfortable intimacy of Antony and the Johnsons, and the baroque strangeness of Bowie. While in Brooklyn, David befriended Shara Worden (of My Brightest Diamond), and soon after began facilitating, in small technical ways, the recording of her album Bring Me The Workhorse. This, in turn, spurred David to begin writing and recording songs that probe questions and revisit dreams and visions. As Inlets, Sebastian Kruegerâs ambitious compositions share a complexity of Owen Pallett or Grizzly Bear. He's collaborated with My Brightest Diamond, handled banjo for Feist on SNL, contributed to DM Stithâs Heavy Ghost, and worked with violinist Marla Hansen. Silje Nes shares her autodidactic adventurousness with peers like Tujiko Noriko, Islaja, Lau Nau, or Foehn, as well as the homespun, sprawling beauty of The Pastels, Pram, or Crescent.
