Idgy Dean unveils video for "The Indian Squirrel Dance," + plays Brooklyn Bazaar on 11.14

Idgy Dean unveils video for "The Indian Squirrel Dance," + plays Brooklyn Bazaar on 11.14

We became acquainted with one girl band Idgy Dean (aka Lindsay Sanwald) a few years ago, when she played our NYC B.E.A.F. (Best of Emerging Artists Fest) at now defunct venue Public Assembly. We now realize Lindsay doesn't actually belong here in NYC. Her new single "The Indian Squirrel Dance," from the full length "Ominous Harminous, scheduled for a January release, is an edgy, tribal track drenched in desert rock aesthetics and featuring weird religious chanting - not exactly your typical NYC music features. But it's the song's video that erases any doubts regarding the fact that Idgy Dean should live a nomadic life, far from the city's anguishing buildings, like some kind of sensual, musical animal, that reveals itself to curious fans at will, semi-naked, and then disappears mysteriously after a song or two. She sure looks comfortable in that environment, and her music perfectly works in it. She'd just have to figure out where to plug her guitar amp... Don't miss her at Brooklyn Bazaar when she opens for Javelin.
