New Atlantis Records to release album by Stern

New Atlantis Records follows up recent releases by Upsilon Acrux and Invisible Things with another gem: the new album by Stern,
Bone Turquoise. Out August 7 on New Atlantis, Bone Turquoise is the brainchild of Brooklyn musician Chuck Stern who has been recording music under the Stern name since the end of his previous band, Time of Orchids (immortalized with releases on John Zorn’s Tzadik label and Cuneiform Records). Conceived as a solo project, Stern has expanded now into a band that includes Toby Driver (Kayo Dot, Vaura, Secret Chiefs 3), Keith Abrams (Kayo Dot), and Tim Byrnes (longtime collaborator of Kayo Dot, Candiria, and more). Check out Invisible Oranges’ premiere of the song “Trappings,” off Bone Turquoise, here.
Bone Turquoise was recorded and mixed by Marc Goodman and Daniel Schlett at Strange Weather Studio (Liturgy, The Men, DIIV). The album follows 2012’s Entitlement EP, recorded with the same lineup. Stern is an exciting, strange force in the Brooklyn scene, in the same orbit as bands like Psalm Zero, Mick Barr and his many projects, and of course, Kayo Dot.
