New East Berlin & Other Stories

Added on by Andrew Marzoni.

Since fall of 2014, Bryan Gottshall and I––with the help of Haley Comet, Adriane Quinlan, and Missy Wilkinson--have been hard at work on our debut LP as Shouts & Murmurs. The LP, "New East Berlin & Other Stories," showcases a number of songs I have written on my own over the years (in New York, Minneapolis, San Diego), and newer compositions, native to New Orleans, where the record was recorded, in Bryan's studio on Alvar Street.

The record is available to stream at Soundcloud here, and can be downloaded for a small fee at Bandcamp. We're hoping to make it available on Spotify and iTunes soon, as well as to play some live shows in New Orleans before too long.

Enjoy, and if you haven't happened to like our Facebook page yet, that's something to do.

Lou Reed is my own hero principally because he stands for all the most fucked up things that I could ever possibly conceive of. Which probably only shows the limits of my imagination.
