Dead Leaf Echo announce special Monkeytown show, get love from the Deli post-CMJ

Brooklyn-based Nouveau Romantics Dead Leaf Echo announce a very special new date at Monkeytown
featuring an experimental, ambient set with remixes unlike any show they've played before.

Dead Leaf Echo NYC Date
Nov 13 - Monkeytown - Brooklyn, NY
More national dates to be annouced soon!

Of their CMJ set at Fontanas, the Deli said:
Dead Leaf Echo followed with a nice transition into shoegaze bliss. Lit only by a screen projector, the shadowed musicians produced a beautiful, intricate atmosphere that echoes 4AD bands. I regret not being able to see the band’s full set as I immensely enjoy their swooning, gorgeously engineered songs.

Only months after their last experiments in high-art on Pale Fire,
featuring the epic title track mixed by Ulrich Schnass,
Dead Leaf Echo has teamed up with John Fryer of 4AD fame
to mix their latest evocative release Truth.

On Truth, Dead Leaf Echo reaches new heights,
exploring greater depths with 7 songs of pure devotion.

Truth will come to the people through German label 2&1 Records (Ex-Alison Records).
Vinyl comes from Custom Made Music with digital distribution from Apollo Audio.

What the press had to say about Dead Leaf Echo

Time Out NY
Some of the best live music in the city.

The DeliNYC
A post-Romantic approach to music, fashion, even New York City the kind of wisdom Robert Smith masterfully conjured in his prime...

The Huffington Post
Resonates like a glass of old-school absinthe.

The L Magazine
We like Dead Leaf Echo's dreamy, shoegazing, indie-pop.

The Sound of Indie
Is every bit as good as any of the other currently hyped shoegaze bands like Film School or Amusement Parks on Fire.

Losing Today
A bliss driven slice of ethereal elegance.

Surfing on Steam
Reminisces in Cocteau Twins etherealism.

Beat Crave
Creates a sinful surrealism.

Resonator Mag
These songs swirl, swell and cohere together in a foggy mist.

Here Comes the Flood
For those still craving the glory days of 4AD.

First Coast News
The band makes songs that are so ethereal and delicately noisy that human comprehension just might be too much to ask for.
I bet Phil Spector in all his deranged glory never imagined a wall of sound quite as massive and tidal as the one that these guys construct.
