MMNY Featured Artist: Telltale

From their review on The Free Times:

Brooklyn’s Telltale showcases an intriguing mix of experimental no-wave, reverb-soaked post-punk, and dark shoegaze. Featuring Eric Gilstrap, Laurie Ruroden, Stephan Cherkashin, and Lauren Andino, the quartet's ear-splitting washes of guitar feedback, deadpan chants and ominous droning wastelands doesn't so much blanket you as it does envelop you, overpowering you with Sonic Youth caterwauls and JAMC-esque walls of sound. The music churns in a slow burn, awash in effects, but there’s an aggression lurking just beneath the surface that maintains an uneasy atmosphere. There’s also a healthy dose of reverb to help wash down all the gauzy noise... This will destroy you... and you will love every second of it.

I don't know if I can say it much better than that. I'm really looking forward to hearing them outside though--something about their hard driving sound I think will be especially well received. They are on around 1:30.

Stephan from Telltale will also be DJing later in the afternoon. He DJs regularly around the city and is one of the masterminds behind the sadly now defunct club Vanishing Point (but they still book shows!). He's sure to be spinning some great tunes in addition to creating some of the most gnarly guitar feed back you've ever heard in Telltale.
