Autodrone Live at The Annex - Thurs 11/13 - CD Release Show! [10 Nov 2008|01:16am]

Hello Friends

We are so excited to announce that we will be playing at The Annex in NYC on Thursday, November 13th
to celebrate the worldwide release of our CD Strike A Match on Clairecords.

We will play at 10pm
The Annex is located at 152 Orchard St.
It is a wonderful venue!!

Bell Hollow and Audn are playing too!!!!!

You can pre-order the CD from ToneVendor at http://www.tonevendor.com up until the eleventh, at which point you can just order it for real, download it from itunes, or buy a physical copy of it in your favorite store.

In other news, Delusions of Adequacy did an interview with us - they had some very nice things to say about Strike A Match, see below:

When Autodrone’s Strike A Match finally finds its way onto the racks of our favourite indie CD stockists, anyone pausing for long enough to listen will hear what is possibly one of the benchmark albums of 2008. A swirling chaotic mixture of 80s,90s (that’s the 1880/90s) and more recent gothic/darkwave influences, Autodrone is possibly one of the most inventive, talented, and (importantly) musically committed bands performing around NY at the moment. With every indication that the rest of us might receive a visit shortly, Jon Gordon called on the band with a view to arranging some introductions. ...

you can read the whole interview here: http://www.adequacy.net/interview.php?InterviewID=123

We sincerely hope to see you at the show on Thursday the 13th. Naturally we will have copies of the CD there for sale, and we will sell them to you very cheaply.

Autodrone News - shows, releases, radio, fun! Saturday night!!! [16 Oct 2008|01:07pm]

Hi There.

*We are playing on Saturday 10/18 at Pianos!
Pianos is at 158 Ludlow Street on the corner of stanton.
we play last.
you will love it!!
more info at http://www.pianosnyc.com and http://www.loveisnoisepop.com/ for the full schedule of the bands playing this awesome show.

*Also, Clairecords is having their first official CMJ showcase in New York City and we are playing!! its on October 23rd at Lit Lounge and if you have badge you can get in for free, there are limited guestlist spots available for both shows, hit us up here if you want one, but do it sooner rather than later.

*Other than that, we made our debut appearance on XFM last week, maybe you caught it, some nice people played "Can't Keep These."

hopefully they will play it more, and they will, especially if you ask them to - you can do it here:

*Also, Strike A Match can now be pre-ordered from a variety of sources. I think that Darla might be the best deal, but you can also check out Amazon, Target, and everywhere else which would make sense.

Reserve your copy from Darla here:
http://www.darla.com/catalog/search.asp?id=14361 They are super nice people! you should totally hop on this if you want a physical copy of the CD.

We will have copies at shows, in stores, and on itunes everywhere in he world after November 11th. Look for a release show some time around there!

*Finally, the UK based Call of Wyld Blog posted an AWESOME review of Strike A Match, it is copied below.

"About eighteen months ago, I happened to be in New York and caught a very interesting band called Autodrone. At that time they had a feisty front woman and played a dark brand of pop. I have kept an eye on them ever since.

In the time that has elapsed, the band has undergone changes. Rachel Luria has gone and vocal duties have now been taken by Katherine Kennedy. The music too has changed direction – and for the better.

So I am delighted with Autodrone’s first album proper ‘ Strike A Match”. This fuzzy guitar-led rock is beautifully geared for late night /summer evening listening. Strike that; it’s damn good whenever you fancy listening to it.

After the opening title track, which sets the scene, the epic ‘Final Days’ comes crashing in. What a tune! Uplifting, noisy and yet equally tuneful. A guaranteed smash at the indie-disco of your choice.

‘100,000 Years of Revenge’ follows, a white-noise instrumental that mutates into the lengthy, strong ‘Kerosene Dreams’. Another stand out track.

‘A Rose Has No Teeth’ and ‘Through the Backwoods’ are further examples of feedback heavy, warped pop, songs that sound sweet to the ear while also making your speakers rattle.

‘Moth of July’ (yes, the insect rather than a typo) is where the band live up to their name. This is pure drone, five minutes of guitar wash and treated, muted voice. ‘Can’t Keep These’ is another dynamic song with a soaring, distorted vocal, as is ‘With Arms Raised’.

‘Of Home’ is the track that most closely resembles the work of My Bloody Valentine, if those worthies had ever managed to produce a record that did justice to their live shows.

The album ends majestically with ‘Pictures’, which is a power ballad of sorts, although it is also an epic guitar drone.

In the last year, the UK has embraced like-minded New Yorkers Asobi Seksu to its bosom. Well, if you liked them, you’ll bloody love Autodrone.

A physical release of 'Strike A Mach' will be released 11 November 2008 on Clairecords."

Stay tuned for more info - including a record release show, very soon. until when.

Brooklyn dream-pop band Bell Hollow have just issued another free remix mp3 on RCRD LBL, a sombre and highly cinematic reformulation of "Eyes Like Planets” by Nine Inch Nails remixer Halo33. The perfect soundtrack to a rainy autumn morning. Download or stream "Eyes Like Planets (Halo33 Remix)" here.

so it works out great for everybody.

In other news, Mark Barton from Losing Today (UK) took a listen to our CD, Strike A Match, Here is what he had to say about it:

autodrone 'strike a match'


Strike a Match

Self Released

More knee knocking loveliness this time from New York's Autodrone whose name for the more hardened and long standing readers among you may well remember us mentioning a few years via their debut demo EP which if we recall rightly had some thing of a Sonic Youth twist about its wares which had us pricking our ears up in admiration. There's no doubting the bruised beauty and intensely epic thorough breeding that pulses throughout the whole of 'Strike a Match'. Over the course of the ensuing years Autodrone have honed their mercurial spirit to the point of an enviable fine art, all at once intricate and devastating, caressing and crushing, tender and turbulent 'Strike a Match' is in one short word colossal and in another ravaged.

Within the grooves that weld together these 12 monolithic slabs Autodrone fuse sublimely the family tree roots that tie together the disparate generic dialects of shoe gaze, dream pop and psych along the way taking the unusual step of front loading the turbulence and attrition to morph and develop towards the close into a hitherto more stream lined and tender natured spectacle so that you have the contrasting book ended bridging of the opening salvo of the title cut the simmering strike a pose 'strike a match' - (a hollowing crystalline and ethereal shade wearing fuzz fuelled tailgates of feedback induced cosmic interference peppered by momentary eruptions of hyper driven grinds a la Curve though ostensibly edgier in texture) - and the frailly majestically mellowing and softly unwinding stratospheric serenade of the blissed out and utterly touching key motifs of 'pictures' (think hallowing hazes of Flying Saucer Attack shimmers scratching away at a distantly dreamy Sundays - nuff said).

From the almost Cathedral-esque framing of the darkly curdling mantra like 'final days' to the spectral chill of the kaleidoscopic cruise controlled 'kerosene dreams' with its wrappings of astral ambience and lunatic lightshow swirls all decoded and dusted in its seductive trestles of sonic embroidery deliciously looses itself in its own incubated igloo of mind expanding florescent fog, Autodrone indelibly craft out lush star crossed atmospheric landscapes dimpled with psychotropic accents occasionally breached by shimmering surges of shock treated raptures of grinding power driven bliss out grooves deftly masked in shadowy terrains that to these ears tap sublimely with enviable ease into worlds previously occupied by the likes of the Cranes, Heart Throbs, MBV (check out 'through the backwoods'), Bleach and Bang Bang Machine the latter of whom are admirably arrested albeit as though shimmying up to mid 80's era March Violets on the vibrantly sugar rushing effects laden dream coat that is the uber cool and refined 'Something'. Elsewhere the frazzled and fractured proto punk-a-delic death disco goo that is the unforgiving 'can't keep these' is certainly pre packed with enough sly knowingness to make Garbage turn green while the buzzing 60's sourced bubblegum pop thrill of 'with arms raised' is tastily festooned with a pulse racing feel good effervescence as though a face off between the sugary peppermint pop of Strawberry Switchblade had undergone a spot of re-spraying at the hands of Lush though personally for us we are quite smitten by the doom lashed bleakly barren austere grip of windswept cinematics bled through the drone drilled death rattle of the psycho-tronically opining and haunted 'moth of July'.

Unquestionably recommended.


Key tracks -

Moth of July

Kerosene dreams


With arms raised
WOW how nice!!!!

Okay so sign up for our e-list and come to our show. Oh and also if you want to buy your very own copy of strike a match, there will be a limited edition hand made run of them available at KSUBI Jeans on Mulberry Street in Soho NYC starting next week or maybe the week after. You can go there and pick up your own copy. The people there are super awesome and nice.

okay thats it for now.
