Performing tomorrow October 16 at 9:00 p.m. at King’s County Saloon in Brooklyn
As the CMJ Music Marathon is currently in full swing in New York City, we’ll pay tribute to an innovative Brooklyn artist that goes by the name Idgy Dean. The solo music project of Lindsay Sanwald, this one-woman army combines earthy tribal percussion with experimental electronics and off-kilter vocals that sound modern in a psychedelic pop vein, but at times bring to mind 1980s envelope-pushing artists such as Toyah Wilcox and Kate Bush. It’s an intriguing combination.
Idgy Dean released her debut full-length album Ominous Harminus last month. It was engineered by Eli Crews, Spaceman Sound and Astrolith. This amazing musician does it all, performing solo by looping and creating a hypnotic soundscape. Watch her in action in this Wreckroom Records video for “Indian Squirrel Dance,” released in 2013.
