KaiserCartel free Tower Of Song in-store concert Sat. Apr 25, 3pm
KaiserCartel are the duo of Courtney Kaiser & Benjamin Cartel. They each write original songs that when performed together are charming as hell! Their debut album, March Forth was produced by Matt Hales (aka aqualung) and mixed by Matt & Ken Thomas (Sigur Ros).
“March Forth, the debut album by Brooklyn based indie-pop duo KaiserCartel, is a pleasant, playful synthesis of airy pop melodies and lo-fi indie rock. Complete with whistling, extensive use of the xylophone, and wonderful harmonies it is the perfect summer album. You might find that its pleasant, piano driven songs would suit well a sunny summer day car ride, windows down, of course.”
“With Miss Kaiser’s gorgeous, woozy voice and Mr. Cartel’s inventive musicianship (a multitasker, he often plays drums and xylophone at the same time) the band found a loyal audience in New York. A full-length album, March Forth followed in June 2008, and subsequent tours across the country helped expand their New York fan club into a national following.”
