Britta Phillips plays bass in Luna and has released three albums as Dean & Britta with husband and bandmate, Dean Wareham. The duo also score films together, most notably Noah Baumbach’s, The Squid & The Whale and Mistress America
Luck or Magic is Britta’s debut solo album, released April 29th on Double Feature Records, produced by Britta and Eric Broucek (with additional production by Scott Hardkiss on two tracks)
“After years of collaborating with Dean Wareham in both Luna and in Dean & Britta, Britta Phillips has at last ventured on her own for her debut album, right with the gossamer, exotic melodies so synonymous with Phillips’ other musical projects. But Luck or Magic allows Phillips to shine, exhibiting that beyond being a fine vocalist and instrumentalist, she’s also a superb songwriter.” (John Everhart) – AV CLUB album review
Dean Wareham is counted as one of the original voices of American indie rock, his band Galaxie 500 emerging from Boston in 1988 and making three celebrated albums for Rough Trade (recently reissued on Domino Records). “Galaxie 500 were the ultimate cult group,” wrote Bookforum, “a band who set the stage for the indie scene of the 21st Century.” His next band Luna recorded seven albums for Elektra and Beggar’s Banquet (including Penthouse, on Rolling Stone’s list of best albums of the 90s), followed by three albums as Dean & Britta (with Britta Phillips). In 2013 he released a 6-song EP, Emancipated Hearts. His songs have been covered by Beck, Ryan Adams, and Joanna Gruesome.
Wareham is also a writer, he contributes to Salon and the Talkhouse, and his memoir Black Postcards is now a Penguin paperback. He recently appeared acting in the Noah Baumbach film Frances Ha. Born in New Zealand, and having spent most of his life in New York City, he currently lives in Los Angeles.
Idgy Dean is the solo music project of Brooklynite Lindsay Sanwald. All songs are composed alone, then looped live on stage.
Her debut full-length record, OMINOUS HARMINUS (engineered by Eli Crews, Spaceman Sound and Astrolith), came out on September 18th, 2015, to coincide with a residency with The A.O. Movement Collective’s ETLE Universe.
