From Q2 Live Concerts: “Elysian Fields”

Elyisan Fields: Jennifer Charles, Oren Bloedow

“(Le) Poisson Rouge has become the go-to venue to host a record release party so it is no surprise that the Brooklyn-based indie band Elysian Fields booked a slot on June 14 to celebrate its newest record Last Night on Earth. Led by co-founders, Oren Bloedow and Jennifer Charles, joined by a host of stellar musicians, the band treats their (L)PR audience to an unforgettable record kick-off featuring songs off their brand-new album.

Elysian Fields first hit the stage in 1995 and has collaborated with the likes of Sean Lennon, Marc Ribot, and Bruce Springsteen. Often referred to as “noir rock”, its sound world is unique and distinct, led by the dark, haunting vocals of Charles. In addition to multiple albums featuring their original songs, the band has also released two complete albums of Sephardic songs on Tzadik, composer John Zorn’s label. Cultivating a following in both the US and Europe, Elysian Fields has toured extensively in Europe and has been featured on several popular television shows including One Tree Hill, Damages and Charmed.
