DUST BOWL FAERIES, Dark Carnival Dream Music
“Americana by way of pagan cabaret” Bay Area Reporter, 2020
Dust Bowl Faeries is a dark-carnival band from New York. Their eclectic repertoire of songs draw inspiration from circus, post-punk and Eastern European folk music. Accordion, singing saw, ukulele, lap-steel, guitar and percussion combine to create the Dust Bowl Faeries otherworldly sound. The band was founded by Ryder Cooley and Hazel, a disembodied taxidermy ram who performs with the Fairies as their mascot-spirit animal. Ryder and Hazel are joined by Rubi LaRue, Jon B. Woodin, Liz LoGiudice & Andrew Stein. Their debut self titled album, produced by music critic Seth Rogovoy, features Tommy Stinson (Replacements) & Melora Creager (Rasputina). The band released two EP’s with producer Floyd Fisher in 2018 and 2019, and their new album, The Plague Garden, co-produced by Mike Schoonmaker, was released in November 2020. Dust Bowl Faeries have been working with filmmaker Lisa M. Thomas/Thin Edge Films on a series of music inspired videos, including (most recently) Candy Store, a music novella, which premiered on MXDWN magazine in October 2020.
“The band creates sounds both mystical and ethereal, and have drawn comparisons to Gogol Bordello, David Lynch, Dresden Dolls and Dead Can Dance” Stitched Sound, 2020
