St. Van Cortlandt and the 101 is a 6-piece band from New York that writes memorable yet thoughtful songs about whatever the hell they goddamn feel like. Their grandiose and intricate sound, which never comes at the cost of clarity, is made up of layer upon layer of melody, harmony, and needle-point rhythms crossed with atmospheric sound-design, odd percussion, and found instruments, all laid into place over often unpredictable song structures. Their first record is Songs Without Faces, Friends Without Words. It was written and recorded in frontman/singer/songwriter Daniel Van Cortlandt's bedroom during the course of a life-changing move from San Francisco to New York City. There the project evolved into a full band featuring guitarist/vocalist Troy Fannin, bassist Chika Obiora, drummer David LeBlanc, and keyboardist Matthew Watanabe. The band is currently gigging around New York, and preparing to release their new EP, The Lion Tree, followed by an East Coast tour.
