Angelo De Augustine releasing LP on Asthmatic Kitty, filmed a gorgeous live session
LA singer/songwriter Angelo De Augustine recently signed to Sufjan Stevens' Asthmatic Kitty label, and he'll release his second album, Swim Inside the Moon, on the label on August 25 (pre-order). He recorded the album in his bathroom, mostly with just a Shure SM57 running to an analog reel-to-reel in his bedroom. Some songs feature him playing his mother's 100-year-old piano in the living room.
He recently released a Sufjan-directed video for "Crazy, Stoned, & Gone" off the album, and we're now premiering a live-session video of Angelo playing "Haze." It was directed by Jess Collins, and filmed in one take with audio direct to tape at Meditation Mount in Ojai, CA. Angelo has a very delicate, intimate sound (and a falsetto that Bon Iver fans should dig), and this video is a great showcase for that. Watch, along with the official video for that song and the "Crazy, Stoned, & Gone" video, below.
Angelo is also touring, including a NYC show on October 19 at Rockwood Music Hall (tickets). All dates are listed below.
