Idgy Dean





Idgy Dean plays Baza Party on July 26th

Idgy Dean will bring her spirited performance to BAZA Studios on July 26. Combining indie rock, DIY, and psych qualities, songs like “Inauguration” and “Indian Squirrel Dance” possess a very edgy, rough, early 2000's indie rock vibe with an added primal edge introduced by tribal sounding tom toms, performed and sampled live, on stage, by this multi-talented and multi-tasking solo artist. - Pearse Devlin





Idgy Dean takes her energetic solo show to Baby's All Right on 11.22

Idgy Dean is a performer. More than just a talented musician, her shows are a rapture of energy, untamed and unrestrained. She performs with a sense of freedom; an independence and willingness to abandon constraints. Skipping between instruments as she loops sounds and constructs her own sonic world, Idgy Dean is in control. It may feel chaotic, untamed and unrestrained, but she is in control. As she pounds on the drums, slides across the neck of the guitar, slurs into the mic, Idgy Dean is in control. There are plenty of videos showing her restless, solo live performances (the best one is streaming below), but they are something worth experiencing in person. You'll have an opportunity to do so tomorrow (November 22) at Baby’s All Right. – Cameron Carr





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.

Idgy Dean releases video for "Onion's Milk" + plays Deli B.E.A.F. on 05.24

Listen to just 'Show Me All The Sounds You Know,' and you might mistakenly think Idgy Dean's only weapons are her positive energy and sultry voice. But stick around for harder-hitting songs like 'Bang Bang Sun' and the new "Onion's Milk" (whose video, directed by Gravity Sleeps, we are premiering below) and you'll soon discover some of the depths to this roaring personality. Like a cross between tune-yards and Marnie Stern, Dean's vocals soar over a backdrop that can include anything from her tympani drum and electric guitars, to double-tracked vocals that surround and pulse through your skin with a physical energy too dynamic to ignore. Idgy Dean will perform at The Deli's B.E.A.F. 2012 (Best of Emerging Artists Fest) at the 2 stages Public Assembly show on May 25 with 13 other local bands, including In One Wind, Xenia Rubinos, Illumintr, Wazu and OhNoMoon. - Mike Levine

Best of NYC #98: Idgy Dean Live at Big Snow on 04.15

Listen to just 'Show Me All The Sounds You Know,' and you might mistakenly think Idgy Dean's (who placed at #98 in our recent Best of NYC poll for emerging artists) only weapons are her positive energy and beautifully sultry voice. But stick around for harder-hitting songs like 'Bang Bang Sun' and ‘Lung’ and you'll soon discover some of the depths to this roaring personality. Like a cross between tune-yards and Marnie Stern, Dean's vocals soar over a backdrop that can include anything from her tympani drum and electric guitars, to double-tracked vocals that surround and pulse through your skin with a physical energy too dynamic to ignore.

See her when she plays at Big Snow on April 15th with Howth. - Mike Levine
