SPIEGEL shares photos of aTELECINE and reviews their first performance at UNSOUND

“…You can read into it much in these gestures of refusal and they understand as a radical reinvention. But you do not. Rewarding and stimulating, it is to focus on the music of aTelecine.”

SENTIMENTALIST reviews VON HAZE’s performance at PANACHE

“Travis Caine and Katherine Kin are old souls that seem sprung from a land of ancient, British mysteries. Their songs summon a symbolist, romantic melancholy with a slow build of guitar/synth intensity from the gut that is equal parts force and tenderness. Just watch their UK Tour Diary video to feel it for yourself.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES reviews the PENDU SOUND RECORDINGS showcase

“Back into the night. After a pit stop for some Cheerwine, the next stop was Saint Vitus, the heavy-metal-friendly bar in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, where Pendu Sound Recordings had organized a showcase of gothwave and dark, dark pop. You could count on one hand the number of people who weren’t wearing all black.”

MAGIC RPM review STARRED and stream two tracks off “Prison to Prison”

“Lulled by The Grateful Dead and George Harrison, but perverted by Royal Trux adolescence, Liza Thorn and Matthew Koshak ignored the references to create a folk teigneuses twilight, halfway between Smog and Mazzy Star, cultivating the passage of dark palettes that have attracted tenants label Pendu Sound Recordings (Chelsea Wolfe, aTelecine).”

RIOT OF PERFUME reviews STARRED

Starred-3

“The primary sonic reference for LA-NYC-based band Starred – formed by Matthew Koshak and Liza Thorn – was originally compared to the Paisley Underground bands (Rain Parade, Opal and Mazzy Star) but this is a severe oversimplification. A better description would be Spiritualized living under the Mojave sky with a perverted love of both Americana music and ambient noise – a music of negative spaces, made by really intense people.”

PLAYGROUND DETROIT reviews YOU.’s performance


“This “Electro/Synth punk” trio, including ex-Detroiters Trever Millay and Brad Taormina take ‘noise’ to the next level. Their dark and dreamy sound is nothing like the former group profiled, but there is that ‘je-ne-sais-quoi’ Detroit influence reflected in their music. YOU. is currently on the independent record label Pendu Sound Recordings.”

THE QUIETUS reviews Chelsea Wolfe’s performance at Roadburn 2012


“Chelsea Wolfe’s mix of shoegaze swirls and satanic swamp-rock stomp was totally, irresistibly enthralling (and I missed the last train home as a result.) It’s these kind of discoveries that Roadburn is built upon.”

CVLT NATION reviews CHELSEA WOLFE’s performance at the Echoplex


“Aside from the more chaotic noise rock elements that occasionally gather enough strength to overpower the soft side of Miss Wolfe’s graceful sonic waltz, the relatively quiet and personal touches that dot Chelsea Wolfe’s soundscape seemed to successfully ensnare the vast majority of attendees. For a show whose patrons spanned the gap between typical artsy LA twenty-somethings and steely-eyed metal vets, all were equally ensnared by the band’s spellbinding doom folk offerings – a sea of eager eyes, receptive minds and attentive ears.”

CVLT NATION posts a stellar, nearly poetic review and haunting photo essay of Chelsea Wolfe’s recent performance at the Echoplex. If you missed the show, this article is the next-best-thing to actually being there.

INVISIBLE ORANGES reviews CHELSEA WOLFE at Echoplex


INVISIBLE ORANGES reviews and photographs Chelsea Wolfe’s show at Echoplex, 1/26/12; “She appropriates not only the imagery, but also an understanding of the mechanics of heavy songwriting, flirting with black metal chords and the occasional blast-beat. Her band treats the material like inverted post-metal: the songs worship the voice more than the riff, but there’s a persistent weight underlining the gothic melodies. Live, you feel the songs churn while the vocal trails off into harmony and dissonance in equal measure. Wolfe pulled the crowd wholly into her world with effortless confidence, and never let go.”

I LISTEN, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO reviews Chelsea’s Performance at ECHOPLEX


I listen, So You Don’t Have To reviews Chelsea’s Performance at Echoplex with Wolves in the Throne Room 1/26/12; “What I didn’t expect was just how fired up the people were to see Chelsea Wolfe… What I heard was the rawness of a young PJ Harvey with more of a goth background, the emotional delivery of a Dax Riggs mixed with the sensual voice of the beautiful Mazzy Star… You could tell just by watching her that she puts every ounce of energy and passion into the delivery of each and every song and she did a fantastic job mixing up the setlist too…Her performance was top notch and I really enjoyed watching her. I would say my first experience with Chelsea was a great introduction and I really look forward to hearing some more brilliant stuff from this rising star in the future.”
