(HUDSON, N.Y.) – Diamond Doves brings its unique blend of indie-rock and electronica to Club Helsinki Hudson on Thursday, November 13, at 8pm, along with neo-folk group Last Good Tooth and art-rocker Adam Schatz.
Diamond Dove’s soulful, hook-laden pop-rock has drawn comparisons to Arcade Fire, Ben Folds Five, Soul Coughing and Autumn Defense. Singers and multi-instrumentalists Nick Kinsey, Brigham Brough, and Wyndham Boylan-Garnett were formerly known as Dearland, of critically acclaimed folk-rock act Elvis Perkins in Dearland. As Diamond Doves, they have toured extensively in support of artists like the Felice Brothers and A.A. Bondy. Their eponymous EP was released in 2011, and their debut full-length “Eat Your Heart Out” followed in 2013. They released a single, “One Good Reason,” in early 2014.
Last Good Tooth leader Penn Sultan finds inspiration in his family’s roots in the mountains of North Carolina and the old-time Appalachian music from the Blue Ridge region, mixed with his love-hate relationship with New York City. Sultan and bassist Kevin Sullivan met in Providence at the Rhode Island School of Design where they pretended to like art for a while so that they could play music for real. They discovered Alex Spoto playing fiddle at nearby Brown University and called up their old-time-high-school-drummer-buddy-friend Arthur Kapp, and thus was formed Last Good Tooth, whose music has been described as “Gordon Gano-ish Appalachian voodoo.”
Boston multi-instrumentalist Adam Schatz is best known for his art-rock band, Landlady, which has drawn comparisons to Talking Heads and TV on the Radio.
