The Future Starlets are a post-glam rat pack who mix up a stiff cocktail of trash-meets-class.

Dalton Deschain & the Traveling Show are a pulp-punk band from New York City. The perfect intersection between David Bowie, Danny Elfman, Stephen King, and Alkaline Trio, the band is known for dark but humorous experimental punk music, filled with pulpy lyrics about circus freaks, dark rituals, nuclear war, and demon posession.

The band has grown a cult following locally through their off-kilter, high-energy shows, including their annual Devil's Night party held every Halloween. Hooks, dance beats, ugly riffs, sci-fi lyrics, and witty banter promise a show and a listening experience that is wholly unique and infectious.

Though their shows are high-energy, fast, and loud, there's a lot more hiding under the surface for fans looking for something extra. All of the songs by the band tell one long, continuous sci-fi/horror story about a circus ringleader possessed by a demon in the 1940s. Featuring a colorful cast of characters including circus freaks, femme fatales, and nuclear researchers, the story is pulp fiction at its best, while also keeping one foot firmly in modern social commentary.

Most recently, the band released Catherine, the second in a series of three EPs that tell the story of one of the characters in the story. Their most experimental album to date, the EP contains the atmospheric post-punk track "Tin Laurels," and the spacey break-up ballad "Approximate Girl." The album is packaged with an accompanying 60-page chapbook, featuring lyrics, illustrations, and a short story written by Deschain about the characters in the album.

Catherine follows last fall's EP Roberta, and the band's 2014 debut EP, The Collateral Vignettes. Both albums can be purchased through bandcamp, as well as all other digital music services.

Rudy Stone first began to notice how absurd his life in Long Island City felt in the summer of 2012. With access to a studio space just across Newtown Creek in Greenpoint, he quickly began to set his observations to music. Realizing his laconic delivery and gentle take on psychedelia wouldn't be a great fit with either of his then-current projects (Lead Stones, Andy & Zeus), he played all the instruments himself and quickly set three tunes to tape. After a year of playing live with a revolving cast of friends, he brought some of his bandmates with him to The Bunker Studio in Williamsburg to record a proper single (Act Like Nothing is Wrong b/w So Tenderly). In 2014, life brought him to New Orleans and he returned to working on his own. The resulting EP, RSX, consisted of two songs recorded and mixed with Pro Tools in a Lake Vista bedroom and two songs recorded to tape in an Uptown living room.

Now, in 2017, Rudy Stone returns with his first full-length, The Blinking Light/Peace on Earth. Recorded once again at The Bunker in fits and starts over the course of a year, this new record represents a step forward both sonically and conceptually. The A-side is a seamless collection of songs showcasing his slice-of-life observations and advice to himself about how to be the best person he can be. If you listen carefully, there may be some lessons for you as well.

The B-side consists of a side-long instrumental reflecting his long time interest in analog synthesizers, echo devices, and drones.

This album will be released in cassette and digital formats via Moderate Fidelity on June 16, 2017.
