Doveman

BV: And you also played on the new Doveman record, The Conformist, which came out October 20th.

Bryce Dessner: Yeah the three of us, my brother and Bryan from [The National] all play on that record. We're kind of like the house band, so we back him up for a bunch of those songs.

National frontman Matt Berninger sings on The Conformist too. And like the album, and almost anything Thomas Bartlett (aka Doveman) does, a private album release party Doveman held in a NYC loft during CMJ was full of guest stars. Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl, Dawn Landes, Jennifer Charles (Elysian Fields), Bryce Dessner, and Justin Bond were all in the house (and performing with Doveman) on Friday, October 23rd. Pictures from that show are continued below.

A more public album release show happens in NYC, tonight (11/1), at Mercury Lounge. Sean Lennon & Charlotte Kemp Muhl will be there again, but this time as headliner of the show. Doveman plays right before them and as a member of their band. White Circle (Josh Wise of French Kicks) is first of fourth on the bill. The talented Julianna Barwick plays right before Dovemen. Sounds like a great way to spend a Sunday night.

On November 3rd Doveman is going out on tour with The Swell Season, though the Swell Season's Radio City date isn't listed as one of the shows he'll be opening. More pictures from the apartment show, and all tour dates, below....

sean's girlfriend charlotte is stunningly beautiful but painfully HORRIBLE to listen to. saw her perform with sean last year at the merc after doveman and wouldn't ever want to again. she even managed to butcher "bonnie and clyde". earplugs a must.

Sean Lennon's a dork. There, I said it.

wow a private party for rich people. neat.

Another example of the fact that pretty people don't equal good music. Barf! Fun to look at but that's all.

Being Sean Lennon has to be the weirdest thing ever.

'total tool-- wannabe "artiste"'

'painfully HORRIBLE to listen to'

'a dork'

...

Lighten up! You are mean to yourselves and it shows. You're a beautiful person who is learning and living. Why can't you see that in everyone else?

"Being Sean Lennon has to be the weirdest thing ever."

I just thought about this, and yeah, it has to be the weirdest thing ever.

1:28, beautiful sentiment, sure. we are all innocent and fragile souls, forever haunted by our own mortality, just trying to make sense of our place in an uncaring universe blah blah blah turn turn turn

regardless, there's nothing wrong with poking a little fun at over-privileged white people so self-satisfied with their own charmed lives that they lack any real perspective.

do you think any one in that room thinks "those are just beautiful people learning and living" when they hear about juggalos?

sean lennon is a great guy. don't hate. don't know anything about his girlfriend.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2009 1:34 PM

and what about doveman? he's awesome.

Posted by noodlemanias | November 2, 2009 2:00 PM

Please tell me there are naked pictures of his girlfriend somewhere online. I wish my dad had been talented so I could pull tail like that. Sean's probably getting a beej right now, F that douche.

I am somehow under the impression that she satisfies herself sexually by making pouting faces in the mirror.

And I also imagine he doesn't try for anything more than cuddling.

rich people getting photographed. cool.

Nice bowler, Sean. Also, nice hat.

No
She is not the hottest girl on BV. She needs a cheeseburger and the hottest on BV so far can be found in the Weezer gig phots from the other nite.
