The Blue Angel Lounge sign to Anton Newcombe’s (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) label ‘A’ Recordings (Dirty Beaches, Dead Skeletons, KVB) 2014 sees the return of The Blue Angel Lounge with their 3rd studio album “A Sea Of Trees”, released on May 2nd. Since the release of their previous album ‘Narcotica’, the band have been garnering international acclaim, touring the US, UK and France with the Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and also making appearances at the Austin Psych Fest and Roskilde.
“A Sea Of Trees” sees the band blossom into its own, incorporating the experimentation of their most recent EP and Single releases (“Ewig” 2012, “Walls” 2013).From the very first moment of ‘A Sea Of Trees’, the epic opening track‘Winter’ wastes no time sonically detailing where the band has been. The bands weapons of choice, guitars coupled with harmonium and singer Nils Ottensmeyer’s powerful Nico’esque vocals culminate in genre-bending territory belonging to them alone. The album marks the bands first worldwide release via Anton Newcombe’s (The Brian Jonestown Massacre) ‘A’ Recording label. Mr. Newcombe joined The Blue Angel Lounge on stage in support of their last record, and most recently invited them to support them on The Brian Jonestown Massacre’s 2012 American tour to rave reviews.The Blue Angel Lounge formed in 2006, after meeting at school in their German village Hohenlimburg near the Rhine River. Led by singer Nils “O.” Ottensmeyer and Dennis Melster, the band took their name from the club in New York City that in the 1960’s offered Nico her first live performances in America. Nico and The Velvet Underground would remain an underlying influence on the band.
‘A Sea Of Trees’ was recorded between 2013 and 2014 at Funkhaus-studio and Studio H1-3 Nalepastrasse, Berlin. Mixed at A Recordings Studio, Berlin. Produced, recorded and mixed by Fabien Leseure and The Blue Angel Lounge.
