Miss Wolfe is getting increasingly harder to keep up with. It seems she has now turned up on the NPR First Listen blog and her new album Apokalypsis, due out next week is now streaming there in its entirety. NPR writer Lars Gotrich tells it best here in this beautifully written and detailed review piece on the album…
Not a week has passed and we find that our gothique doom folk friend Chelsea Wolfe has turned up on yet another lofty compilation! NYC college radio trendsetters CMJ have just released this fun FreePlay mix featuring Ganglians, Male Bonding, Active Child and more!
Chelsea is about to head out on a solo Euro tour so if you’re in Sweden, France, Norway or NYC be sure to check out this engaging enchantress.
Chelsea and her band were houseguests of ours during SXSW where we got to witness an eerie and stunning performance at the newly revamped Hotel Vegas. Wolfe, a siren-like singing sorceress with crystal blue eyes and porcelain skin remained mysteriously garbed in heavy dark textiles and a black lace veil throughout the entire set.
The tribute compilation, featuring 11 of Stereogum’s favorite indie groups pays homage to The Strokes first album Is This It and marks 10 years since their debut. We could not be more pleased to see Chelsea’s group pop up alongside indie heavies such as Peter Bjorn and John, Owen Pallett and others. Click HERE to listen to the full album!
