We’re proud to announce the release date for my Brooklyn indie-folk band Leland Sundries’ 2nd release ‘The Foundry EP’ Feb 21, 2012 on L’Echiquier Records. We recorded in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in an old creamery building and I played resonator guitar, banjo, harmonium, harmonica, and vocals. We’re planning touring and videos and I’ll write an essay on each song. This time, we dip into folk darkness (a friend compared it to Nick Cave if he were fronting Bonnie Prince Billy’s band), a sea chantey written after a Brooklyn waterfront fire destroyed part of the Greenpoint waterfront, a tongue-in-cheek rockabilly tune, and some NOLA-inspired ragtime with horn section. – Nick & co.
