From the Press Release:


On 6th of July 2018 Lark will release 'The Last Woman' on Standard Lamp Records. This 12 track record follows 2015s Funny Manand Lark's 6th album sees a continued progression, as they mine deeply intricate and compelling shadows from a noir entrenched sonic pallet.
Acclaimed by both critics and fellow musicians alike, Lark is an independent band and solo project founded by Karl Bielik, a nonconformist and often idiosyncratic songwriter, frontman and artist.

Nell Waters at Brethren

Image
Today is the last day to view Nell Waters' exhibition of somber, meditative and deeply connective paintings on view at Brethren Gallery in Ridgewood, Queens.

In this exhibit Waters has stepped away from her recent, improvisational black and white paintings (akin to automatic writing) to present familiar images with associations that have long taken up space in the universal mind.

The artist will be at the gallery today from 4 - 6 pm so don't miss the chance to see these tough, gritty paintings in person.
