LIGHT HEAT (aka QUENTIN STOLTZFUS) ANNOUNCE DEBUT SELF-TITLED ALBUM
The fact that Quentin Stoltzfus hasn’t released a record since Mazarin’s We’re Already There (2005) borders on absurd, but know this: over the last seven years sometime between producing albums for friends, pulling hours as a professional mover, and building a world class recording studio Quentin wrote, re-wrote, recorded and re-recorded an album we couldn’t be more pleased to be a part of - Light Heat.
Some may recall Quentin endured a long, laborious, legal back and forth to retain the right to use his previous band’s name circa 2006 and the subsequent loss of that right. Following this unfortunate episode Quentin stepped away from performing and releasing music. He did not though cease writing and recording music. Thankfully. With the help of an assembled group of friends including Paul Maroon, Matt Barrick, Peter Bauer and Walter Martin from The Walkmen, Quentin’s new venture, Light Heat, manages to weave classic references (Stereolab, The Byrds) with the sound of the future.
Two songs from the debut album are available to hear online now. The first is a “shimmering slow-burner” of a song titled “The Mirror” which premiered over at SPIN, the other “And The Birds” can be found below.
Light Heat, Light Heat will be released worldwide, June 25th.
