 Little Band of Sailors (1 Albums, 10 Tracks)

Artist

CURATOR:
LOCATION:New York, NY
MEMBERS:
  • Rachel Mason - guitar
  • vox
  • Dmitriy Ivolgin - bass
  • Mara Mayer - bass clarinet
  • Chris Carlone - drums
  • Michael Durek - theremin

The band is fronted by Rachel Mason, a sculptor and a performer, who has toured and shared stages with Prince Rama, Light Asylum, Josephine Foster, Joan of Arc, Sharon Von Etten, White Mystery and Ed Askew. Dubbed, "marvelously strange" by the Village Voice, her lyrics revel in surreal narrative stories weaving history, science fiction fantasy, with lovestruck invented characters. Dmitriy Ivolgin crafts intricate and driving melodic riffs on bass to the ecstatic accompaniment of the bass clarinet sounds of classically trained, Mara Mayer. In live shows they play with Mrs. Press, a rock goddess Israeli-Egyptian drummer. Their live shows are a costumed spectacle of raw energy. Jefferson Airplane meets Black Sabbath in another dimension. The title of their debut album is inspired by the image on the album's cover created by one of the most revered artists in the world, John Baldessari.
