Supporting Acts: Caged Animals, Life Size Maps Light Heat
Bursting forth as a fully-formed artist into the world of music in 1999, Quentin Stoltzfus has been rotating the crops ever since. Fluent in Johns Cale *and* Cage, the gazes of both shoe and stars, and the vibrations of both Earth and space, he fears no sound. Having made a string of records with his former group, Mazarin, he incorporated all of these influences and more. Those records smoothly jangled in a way that made you wanna listen to them in a dune buggy on Mars, with now-bedroom classics like 'Another One Goes By', 'Wheats', and 'Chasing The Girl'. The fact that the man has not released a record since 2005 borders on absurd, but know this: That whole time, Stoltzfus was thinkingabout communicating with you. Writing, recording, and rebuilding ever since, he is now proud to share with you a thing called LIGHT HEAT. Brought on with valuable contributions from Mazarin mainstay Mickey Walker and his old pals Sam Cohen (Apollo Sunshine/ Yellowbirds) and Drew Mills (Aspera/ Blood Feathers), the group somehow manages to weave classic references with the sound of the future. There's sweet soft harmonies alongside guitar pyrotechnics and a rhythm section any German dude from the 1970s would have been proud of.
