FOTOCRIME
FOTOCRIME
FOTOCRIME is the new musical endeavor by R.Pattern (aka Ryan Patterson, formerly of Coliseum) and including Nick Thieneman (Young Widows) in the live band. After over a decade as the singer-guitarist of post-hardcore trio Coliseum, Pattern forged ahead on his own with a new vision, sound, and moniker: Fotocrime. Backed by danceable, battle hymn drum machines and layered synths, Fotocrime brings a monochrome clarity to its electronic-meets-organic post-punk with driving bass, single-note guitar work, and Pattern’s unmistakable drawl. Forging a connection between the shadows of the underbelly of the mid-century American Dream, the ghostly corners of post-war Europe, and the present moment, Fotocrime breathes new life into Cold War paranoia, modern-day malaise and smoky noir.
The Silence Kit
The Silence Kit
The Silence Kit is a Philadelphia-based post-punk band that plays textured, dark, indie rock. Inspired in equal parts by post punk, shoegaze, neo-psychedelia, avant-garde and indie rock, the band was started by singer/guitarist Patrick McCay back in 2002 as a solo recording project, eventually culminating in the first album "In Regulated Measure" (2006). "A Strange Labor" (2008) and "Dislocations" (2009) followed and "The Stairs" and "In Parts" EPs were released in 2011, each release garnering positive reviews from a variety of press. With each release The Silence Kit's signature sound grows more distinct, while the songwriting and arrangements continue to grow more varied and ambitious. The band's fourth LP "Watershed" is their most accomplished to date. Released on April 8th on Azteca Records / Break Even Records, "Watershed" reflects the band's wide palette of songwriting, mood and texture.
