Painted Face

Jan 13th, 2011 : by :: Tags: , , , ,
Since first hearing Painted Face, comprised of singer-songwriter Allie Alvarado, I’ve held her music very close to my heart. Listening to her music is like watching notes bloom into a fairytale of effortless melodies. Her voice emanates a compassion that brings you into her world. It leaves your imagination running wild through electronic pop beats that you thought could only exist in space. Originally from DC, she moved to Brooklyn, NY and became a part of the eclectic music scene when she joined the band Blood Lines and Telepathe. Realizing she wanted to pursue her own musical destiny, she moved back to DC and started Painted Face. Her debut EP titled Undreamt was produced by Alvin Risk and herself, which you can listen to here. My favorite song on the EP is “Girls in Love.” It’s a song that weighs heavy on the heart through the lyrical and musical composition. It made me think of the myriad of situations that everyone’s soul has gone through with love. The lyric that resonates with me the most is “what will it take to get the point across.” I’m left with wanting to hear more of what Painted Face has in store for us.

PS: NEWDUST is throwing a show with Painted Face at Velvet Lounge this Saturday January15th. Joining her will be Raindeer and Stout Cortez. Be there!

Fergus & Geronimo

For those of you who don’t already know Fergus & Geronimo get ready.  These guys hail from Denton, Texas and blend the right amount of punchy Motown pop with fuzzy lo-fi punk.  As you may know F&G is playing in DC at Velvet Lounge on August 17th w/ newdust bros Long Walks on the Beach and Archivists.  Last I heard the band is releasing an EP very soon with Hardly Art.  Until then enjoy the Yours Truly video for the soulful B-side “Powerful Lovin” (newdust fave), “Blind Muslim Girl” (buy it here) and “Girls With English Accents”.  See you at the show!

Newdust House Show Recap & Photos

Jul 28th, 2010 : by :: Tags: , , ,

Click here to view more great live photos of the show.

The vibe at 619 Pearl St. on July 25th could not have been more laid back or chill (as was perfectly stated on Josh’s t-shirt). We all hung out in the backyard sipping on our ice cold beers and munching on hot dogs until a heavy downpour brought us indoors. And then there was music. Our friends Marmalakes & Mont Lyons both put on fantastic shows! Shout out to all those who came to hang out with us to mark our first year in the blogosphere! Cheers!

PS: If anyone has more video or pictures of the event let me know and I will post it.
