DD006 B1: Celestial Shore // Maps
CELESTIAL SHORE — Maps (Place Aux Dames 7”, 2011)
Stumbled across this track, ‘Maps’ by Celestial Shore, the other day somewhere on Tumblr - I was instantly hooked. The song starts out sort of dreamy, just floating along, much like the artwork… Then a bunch of strange little sounds come swirling in, humming along in the background, bubbling up from below. They add a sort of chaos to the song that really makes it shine and come alive.
‘Maps’ will be the B-side to Celestial Shore’s upcoming 7”, ‘Place Aux Dames’ which will be released on Double Denim Records in early July. Check out the two songs on the A-side (‘Pals’ and ‘Place Aux Dames’) over at the Double Denim Soundcloud page.
Experimental rock trio Celestial Shore from Brooklyn have a debut album in the works for April, titled 10x. Here’s one of the album tracks, Valerie, a dizzying, disjointed, dreamy sonic treat. The album was mixed by Greg Saunier of Deerhoof. It’s an interesting, wacky song that seems to be infused with some Radiohead influence.
Artist: Celestial Shore
Brooklyn-based lo-fi quartet, Celestial Shore, uses their instrumental skills to establish an innovative structure of multithreaded musical elements in their track, Valerie, from their forthcoming full-length 10x, out April 23rd.

Full of whimsy and half-completed musical thought bubbles. Guitarists have real nice chops…make their melodies sound like assertive birds. Don’t let the balladeering beginning fool you. Honestly, this sounds like an outtake from Bitte Orca. Two years late maybe.
On stage TONIGHT at 285 Kent in Williamsburg with fellow guitar virtuoso Delicate Steve; Friday 3/8 at The Stone in the East Village, quite a lovely spot to see this sort of music; and 3/13 at SXSW.
Hightail it over to bandcamp…
Whoa, hello there, Celestial Shore! This is some cool, wacky, off kilter, disjointed indie rock a la Radiohead meets some sort of zealous warp hole (at least, in the beginning section)! The Brooklyn band have a full length album coming out in April titled 10x, and here’s album track Valerie. It’s unique and baroque pop artsy, immediately popping out at me as a heckuva listen. Here’s a few more older tunes from them below:
