suggestioni musicali a cura di raffaello russo
New track by Gem Club.
Gem Club was formed by Christopher Barnes, with cellist Kristen Drymala, at the end of 2009.
Their first EP, Acid and Everything, was recorded in Barnes’ Somerville, MA home and self-released on June 2010. The EP was written as part of the RPM Challenge, a challenge for musicians to write and record an album during the month of February.
Gem Club was soon after signed to Hardly Art, a Sub Pop sub-label, and began working with vocalist Ieva Berberian. The group’s debut full length, Breakers, was released September 27, 2011 and was met with critical success. The album was well reviewed by music sites and magazines NME, AllMusic, NPR, Pitchfork, Dusted, among others.
Their sophomore album, “In Roses“, was recorded entirely in analog to tape at John Vanderslice’s Tiny Telephone studio in San Francisco, CA, with orchestral work from Magik*Magik Orchestra featured on several songs.
