DEIDRE‘s debut EP “Curious Parcel” is like a femme fatale who gets distracted and falls in love - filled with vulnerability, pleasure, suspicion, and tragedy. Mixing sounds of the blues, gypsies, surf safaris, 60s a-go-go and more, she melds numerous influences into songs of love and horror – a totally new sound for the singer who also performs in Brooklyn bands Savoir Adore and French Horn Rebellion.
But where did inspiration for such a blend of sounds come from? In August of 2010, DEIDRE found a package on her doorstep, severely weathered, and covered in forwarded addresses ranging from New Orleans to Berlin, dated from 1905 to 1966. The National Security Agency deemed the package a “curious parcel” and has urged DEIDRE to voluntarily hand over the object to them for investigation. But in an act almost as mysterious as the parcel itself, she decided to take the secrets within it and share them with the world. Curating and hosting conceptual parties at Brooklyn’s Zebulon over the last year, DEIDRE began to harness her storytelling skills. She and producer David Perlick-Molinari (French Horn Rebellion, MGMT’s Time To Pretend) have captured that energy on this collection of recordings, with much more on the way.
On July 28th, DEIDRE will share her findings at a summer noir affair at Pete’s Candy Store in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. A once-in-a-blue-moon type performance, she will relay the stripped-down essence of the tales within the Curious Parcel with the help of her two brothers, The Muros, as well as her Ladies in Waiting. Joined by artists also performing out-of-their-boxes, Christina B (of Starlight Girls), Little Anchor, and Wavebreaker, as well as some other very strange characters. A limited edition of “Curious Parcel” has been pressed and will be available for guests to purchase. Head to www.deidremusic.com for more tall tales.
