Third Drunkenly Joyous Dark Pop Album From Underground Bay Area DIY Super-Group
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Neil Campau, Publicist
WORLDWIDE – San Francisco's The Yellow Dress will release their third and heavily-anticipated album, "Faint Music // Ordinary Light," in less than a month. Recorded and mixed, entirely analog, at John Vanderslice's Tiny Telephone Studios, produced by Ian Pellicci (Deerhoof, The Dodos) and mastered by Paul Oldham (Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Sonny and the Sunsets), the album features an 8-person line-up of San Francisco Bay Area musicians, plus guest vocals from several more, mostly from the underground DIY scene in San Francisco and Oakland. The Yellow Dress has been called a "supergroup" several times throughout its 6+ year lifespan, which is appropriate since every member has at least one other local project in which they perform. The band draws much inspiration from the local literary community and often finds themselves performing at events for folks such as McSweeney's and The Rumpus; the name of the album comes from the Robert Hass poem "Faint Music." Preorder digital and vinyl editions of the album from Bandcamp before the official release on January 4, 2014.
"Drunkenly joyous anti-folk." (Drapeaux Rouges Des Enfants Perdus)
"Subtle and touching, dismissive and indignant." (Drunken Werewolf)
"A sound you’d expect if The Magnetic Fields’ Stephin Merritt got over his apparent self-loathing and developed a sense of humor." (Santa Fe Reporter)
"Leave apathy and pretentiousness to the buzz bands, opting instead for relentlessly cheery, homespun ditties with a heartfelt edge." (Owl And Bear)
"Basically the closest equivalent twee-pop has so far to David Bowie’s "Heroes" in terms of a cathartic rock n’ roll anthem." (SF ReBirth)
"Gentle, hand-clapping indie pop." (You Ain't No Picasso)
