"New York's Ohnomoon evoke something lush, dark and rich, a haunting series of whispers and lilting guitars. Somewhere between the atmospherics of Warpaint and the sparse guitar work of minimalist outfits like the xx [...]" - 32ft/second
For Every Story Untold
For Every Story Untold
For Every Story Untold was formed when Lauren Edman and Brian Caesar met in the winter of 2009 in Astoria, NY. A lifelong musician, Edman had previously written and played with several artists, making appearances on Sleepthief’s album The Dawnseeker and Delta-S’s Voyage to Isis. Caesar had previously been the bassist for As Tall As Lions, significantly helping in the writing and production of the band’s debut album Lafcadio. Since his departure from the group in 2004, he had only picked up his bass for a handful of shows with other artists, and he began refocusing on writing songs with supernatural elements in mind. Sharing drinks and chiming glasses, the two were quickly brought to the conclusion that they should collaborate on some music.

The first song they wrote together was "Hideout." The arrangement was derived from part of a score to a story that Caesar had written years ago. Edman took this background music and came up with a haunting vocal melody that gave the song new life. Caesar began to lay down other ideas that he had developed over the years in his Queens, NY apartment including the lyrical ghost stories "Mistakes We’ve Made" and "When This Nightmare Ends Its Course."

As the songs came closer to completion, sound by sound and layer by layer, Edman and Caesar found that each track had begun to establish its own identity, each reaching a different range of emotion within it. These songs capture the emotional acrobatics of a person reciting an urban legend to his or her friends on a dark night.

For Every Story Untold digitally released their debut EP Hideout in August 2010, and they are currently putting the finishing touches on their first full length album scheduled for a fall 2013 release.
Winkie
Winkie
American Primitive are proud to announce the sophomore release from Winkie, titled “Come To My Party”, on February 19th. it was mixed by Joe Cardamone of The Icarus Line and mastered at Valley Recording Company. It’s available digitally as well as on 150 gram black vinyl (limited to 300, silk screened jacket, hand numbered & with download code) via the bands bandcamp page and at Norman records in the UK.

WINKIE is not here to bring you rainbows. That is a promise. Their sound and live performances have been repeatedly likened to a strobe light induced club meltdown and, to paraphrase a previous review, there are moments that make you feel a bit like you’re simultaneously experiencing a catastrophic hangover while lying in a pool of that stuff you roll on your forehead to relieve headaches.

What began as a film scoring project and alias used by Peter Santiago and Gina Spiteri, WINKIE (the name lifted straight out of a scene in a David Lynch movie) evolved into an actual ‘band’ when the two realized that they were still writing songs after the credits rolled. And those songs became the band's first album “One Day We Pretended to Be Ghosts” which was mastered by Oliver Ackermann of A Place To Bury Strangers and released in 2013. The sold out limited release was a best seller at Norman Records and received support from KXLU’s Part Time Punks, DKFM, WFKU and WFMU. They’ve shared stages with Xeno & Oaklander, Vaniish, Pill, LODRO, Vowws, Parlor Walls and DOOMSQUAD. In March 2015, Winkie contributed a track to the well-received “Leave Them All Behind — A Tribute To Ride” which also included covers by Oliver Ackermann and Ceremony.

And now this New York based duo are back to follow up their remarkable debut with a new album that assure us the best road traveled is always the bleakest one. For their second ride they’ve enlisted the help of The Icarus Line’s Joe Cardamone who knows a thing or two about driving straight into the eye of a storm. The band’s sound brings about comparisons to Christian Death, early-era Swans, Malaria!, X-Mal Deutschland, Cranes, Killing Joke, Curve, My Bloody Valentine by way of soft, sullenly sweet vocals weaving in and out of a minefield of fuzz drenched drone. All brought to you with no guitars. It’s a cheerless desolate soundtrack for the desperate.
