Dead Leaf Echo - Birth
New York three-piece Dead Leaf Echo have been drifting around since beginning in 2006. Never gaining huge word-of-mouth nation-wide, the band was still highly regarded in their native city, and hit up SXSW in 2010 alongside a few more familiar acts like Japanther and A Place To Bury Strangers.
With another trip to Austin this week, fans will have another chance to witness one of shoegaze's best lesser-known acts. Wednesday, March 13, the band will be performing at Lucy's Retired Surfers Bar at 4 p.m. The next day, the band will be performing at Todd's Mansion at 6 p.m. Saturday, the group will be appearing at Buffalo Billiards with The Ocean Blue at 9 p.m. And next Sunday, finally, the band will be performing with The Warlocks at The Volstead at 2 p.m.
For a preview, check out the band's single "Birth" from their debut Thought & Language here.
