UNREAL LIFE premiers AZAR SWAN mixtape ft. Massive Attack, Travi$ Scott, Ciara and more

unreal life

azar swan

“The first time I ever saw SALEM and Gatekeeper was in 2010, in the NYC venue Glasslands. It was the perfect spot for both: small, intimate, plenty of bass and so much fog you could barely see. The show was presented by Todd Pendu, a man who’s since become one of the city’s major underground movers. I tend to keep an eye on anything his label Pendu Sound is up to, and I’ve yet to be disappointed. Azar Swan, one of the latest additions to the roster, are the perfect example of modern dark music cut free from tired scenes: influences proudly worn, visually/audibly drenched in black but with unabashed pop love.”

UNRATED MAGAZINE reviews STARRED opening for COURTNEY LOVE at House of Blues Chicago

Screen Shot 2013-08-01 at 12.22.42 PM

STARRED_005

“STARRED has just begun, the sleezy anxiety of profit margins and tourist traps falls secondary to the first legitimate performance of the night. It’s fascinating to watch the crowd. Empty and haunting guitar noise divide people between complete captivation and indifference, yet one can still tell a real sonic treat is about to be unfurled through the disguise of auditory minimalism.

Genuine applause and cheering erupt as the rest of the young band fills out on stage with a sound that sits somewhere between guitars tuning up between sets, and full throated vocals. You’re never sure if STARRED has just rocked your world or left you with a half cocked sneeze never to be expelled. It has been a long time since we’ve been exposed to good music that forces you to actually listen, and those in the crowd truly listening are rewarded with a memorable experience.”

KQED features TEMPERS in “New Music to Love”

“Every once in a while a song/band comes along that just sweeps me up in an extra dramatic way. The latest of these spells has been woven by Tempers, whose songs are danceable and melancholy, which is only the best combination ever. They are a photogenic duo who sulk in wine bars and are inspired by Latvian dance clubs. In short, there’s nothing not to love.”

FACT MAG features AZAR SWAN’s “Gothy Rework” of ACE HOOD’s “Bugatti”

ScreenShot247
ScreenShot246

“New York duo Azar Swan have come up with something a little different here, moving from their usual gothy excursions to offering a rather different take on Ace Hood’s club smash ‘Bugatti’. If you’ve listened to rap radio in the last year, then the original Rick Ross-featuring smash has been something of a permanent fixture, and hearing it transformed into a woozy, post-Siouxsie and the Banshees wailer is interesting to say the least.”

“A steamy reality is what director Todd Pendu depicts in the new VON HAZE Conduct Your Touch music video which portrays several gender bending NYC couples engaging in some raw yet romantic activities. This video reminds us not only that queer sex is all around us, but that Zana Bayne harnesses can be worn OFF the runway too– and they do look awfully stylish between the sheets don’t you think?”

New TEMPERS interview + editorial on SANGBLEU

Screen Shot 2013-07-11 at 2.48.20 PM

temperscollage

“It’s sometime near midnight along North Brooklyn’s renewed waterfront strip as singer-songwriter Jasmine Golestaneh and her instrumental right hand man Eddie Cooper, better known as the NYC-based duo Tempers, sit at the furthermost table of a vast and desolate wine bar, spiked with the scent of newly stained wood. They’ve tucked themselves away in an effort to escape the stark contrast to neighboring Glasslands Gallery, where they took to the stage earlier that night, opening for compatriots Amen Dunes and Suuns. With the ghosts of the East River and an industrial past adrift above their heads, Eddie takes notice of an ATM blinking neon blue light in the dark bathroom hallway.”
