It's been awhile since Doveman made some news in these here parts - after a UK tour in January and a sold-out performance of Footloose at Joe's Pub in February (pictures of which can be seen on BrooklynVegan), Thomas and the gang have laid low, putting songs on tape for a spankin' new record. While the details are still a little secretive, we can divulge that the new record will feature Sam Amidon as well as Aaron, Bryce, and Bryan from The National making various noises and sounds. So get excited and stuff.
In addition, Doveman will be playing with Sam, Aaron, Bryce, and Bryan at Le Poisson Rouge on June 18th. You can purchase your tickets here on LPR's ticket service site. In the meantime, check out this little video featuring Thomas and Sam by The Local TV:
That about does it for now.
What the hell is going on in that picture? We were wondering too. But St. Vincent's Twitter feed cleared everything up. Apparently it's St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark) literally walking all over Doveman. What the hell indeed!?! Is this Annie's way of lording it over her equally pseudonymous but slightly less unit-shifting friend Doveman (aka Thomas Bartlett). Well...no. We actually think she was giving him an EXTREME massage. That said, when Doveman's friends walk all over him, shouldn't he get a shot at turning the tables? Hells YES! Starting next week, Doveman (aka Thomas ....continue....Tweet
If you're anything like us, you were probably at the local megaplex opening night to experience the shining beacon of artistic creativity that is the remake of the movie Footloose. Who isn't a fan of edgy, hip-hop interpretations of the classic stories like this one: boy vs. authority, love & dancing in small town America... Ok, so we can't even pretend that we've seen the new version of this movie and, let's be honest, we probably never will. However, we do have some relevant news: In conjunction with the release of the film, we've reissued ....continue....Tweet
Our personal superhero, Doveman, is in the midst of a highly praised run of shows at New York's Le Poisson Rouge called the Burgundy Stain Sessions. No stranger to working with other musicians (as he has in the past with the likes of David Byrne and Yoko Ono), the first installment of Burgundy Sessions hosted the likes of Sam Amidon, Beth Orton and Glen Hansard. It's almost like that Big Four thing that happened in Europe, only with folkie people rather than Megadeath. Anyway, you can get a dose of many a music personality at these shows while ....continue....Tweet
The soothing tones which Thomas Bartlett's Doveman project specializes in are certainly pleasing to the ears. Now, add some visuals to the Doveman experience with the latest video premiere off his 2009 album The Conformist. Directed by Sam Amidon, a childhood friend and a considerable musician in his own right, “The Burgundy Stain” video depicts an array of powerful scenes showing the tranquility of nature, the beauty of musical creation, and the emotional attachment to family. The viewer is transformed! At least for the 2 minutes and 26 seconds that it lasts. Amidon had these words to contribute alongside this video: “The ....continue....Tweet
