HOW TO DISAPPEAR (BUT NOT COMPLETELY)

A relatively undercover year for The Dossier, as we continued work on our next LP, grappled with the usual existential distractions, and took a deep dive into extracurriculars--writing, recording, remixing, and producing with and for other camps.

Chief of those was the far-flung electronic collective Trade Secrets, with whom we collaborated on the debut single Only You from their Golden Life EP; remixed second single Deaux, featuring French pop chanteur Peka; and co-wrote and performed on the forthcoming track Broken Instincts.

Longstanding comrades The Mystic Underground got a martial rework of their single Those Evil Urges, with other remixes and collaborations in the pipe. Some ill-timed health issues saw us treading the live boards less than we'd have liked, but we shared the stage with the excellent Ghost Cop and Panama Papers.

For the new year we've got singles on the brain--offerings that stand up and announce themselves to us from the gestating LP and answer our overwhelming desire to break ranks and share new material after so much time in the laboratory.

Come play with us across our social accounts and stay up to date: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Here's to 2018, new independent music, seeing this inane fool out of office, and the never-ending war of art--see you soon.

SOUTH OF THE BORDER

We're pleased to make our live return under the banner of Scenic NYC, for our money the best independent booker in town--Friday May 19th in the Safari Room at Brooklyn's El Cortez.

We'll be playing tunes off our forthcoming record along with some old favorites, joined onstage by the sunny house vibes of Panama Papers and the avant-electropop of Prima Primo.

Get advance tix here and RSVP/share on Facebook--looking foward to seeing you there.

ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU

 

While working on a new record of our own we always welcome an interesting extracurricular here or there--particularly when the invitation comes from FJ DeSanto, a long-time musical comrade and collaborator with whom we've worked numerous times via his Hypefactor alias.

FJ's production and remix outfit Trade Secrets (who reworked our own Let Your Heart Speak My Name to gorgeous effect) has evolved into an electronic salon of sorts--numerous musicians united under the banner of FJ's stewardship to contribute to the release of Golden Life, a record inspired by his journeys to Tokyo and his year quietly battling a life-threatening illness.

The Dossier was priveleged to co-write and perform on the initial offering from the EP, the neon-lit and darkly romantic 'Only You'. The taster track is available to stream now with a single package featuring remixes (including work from fellow TS collaborator Peka) in the works and the full EP to follow via Distortion Productions in the spring.

Everyone involved in this project (and plenty beyond) can testify to FJ's firm friendship, fandom, artistry, and passion for music--a 'golden life' distilled in eclectic and beautiful fashion on this new record. We'll keep you posted on the full release dates and hope you will check it out.
