The Satellite Presents
Starting out life as a foster kid in St. Louis, the half-Apache/half-German, hard-to-describe (pin down and destroy) artist, Kristeen Young, has always been the very definition of D.I.Y. Step by small step (without a record label, booking agent, or manager) Young has moved from difficult beginnings to recording and touring (as opening act) with some of the most respected musicians of the era: David Bowie, Morrissey, Dave Grohl & Pat Smear, Nick Zinner (and more). With her new album, “The SubSet” (tbr Sep. 4, 2019) Young continues this take-the-reigns rule of action by writing, arranging, producing, mixing, and playing almost every instrument (except live drums: played by drummer, Jefferson “Baby Jef” White) herself. The dissonant piano bashing, tribal beats, operatic vocals, and incisive lyric moments are all there, but in changing contexts and mixed-genre settings. In support of the release this autumn, Young will be playing residencies in various cities: including Berlin in NYC in September, The Satellite in Los Angeles and DNA Lounge in San Francisco in October, and various venues in London in November.
Originally conceived as a “theatrical rock adventure” with a pair of wildly creative and immersive multi-media performances at Highways Performance Space/Gallery last year, STUNTDRIVER has honed itself into a sleeker vehicle for performance artist/music-maker Kym Priess’s outsized musical vision. Performing alongside Priess (vocals, synths) are former Oingo Boingo member John Avila (bass, backing vocals), Anton Söder (drum programming, keytar), Nightmare Air’s Jimmy Lucido (live drums) and Ryan James (guitars). The band are a torrid post-rock phenomenon combining industrial, electro, punk and dance elements into their bombastic, yet connected, existential mix. No one live show is the same. Antics may include but are not limited to white racecar suits, gold helmets, gold/black faces, Grace Jones-style costume changes, Janet Jackson-inspired choreography , visuals, props and audience interaction. The single BAD BATH is currently out on all platforms along with an official video while PLASTIC FACES is due for release in October. LP out 2020.
