Elysian Fields at The Owl Music Parlor, Brooklyn
May 31 @ 8:00 pm
Jennifer Charles and Oren Bloedow are the writers who make up the critically-acclaimed, little known (at least in their own country) band that formed in New York in the late ’90s and went on to develop a cult following of faithful fans around the world. After a dalliance with a major label for their first album in 1996, Elysian Fields recorded their second full-length with Steve Albini, generating a response from the label that had the band asking to be released from their contract. They went on to forge a path outside of the mainstream, recording with a number of independent labels over the years, most recently for Microcultures in France and Ojet in the US. They are “musicians’ musicians,” attracting esteemed players from around the world to sit in with their live sets. In late 2018, they released their 11th album Pink Air, a post-apocalyptic rock & roll joyride which New York Music Daily called, “Another dark lyrical masterpiece from Elysian Fields… One of the half-dozen best albums to come out in 2018.”
With Sam Levin (drums) and Danton Boller (bass).
