Our new album is still new. It came out in January and a lot has been happening all around us, below, above, side to side. You have the rest of your lives to listen to our new album, “The World Is A Loud Place,” but who knows how many more chances you’ll get to see us perform live.
Here are some events that might occur that would make this our last tour ever:
-inter-band romances begin and then crumble
-music industry grows vibrant and we all embark on successful solo projects
-music industry continues decline and we eat each other in order of height
-van slips on banana peel thrown by car in front of us
-trapped under fallen stack of CD singles of "Landslide"
-anything else that ever happened to Fleetwood Mac
-low ticket sales**
see you out there,
“On their third album, Brooklyn’s Landlady perfect their quizzical prog-pop…The album is best when it’s most vexing, when its puzzle-piece arrangements demand you put everything together…Landlady craft a cacophony, but Schatz won’t put his hands over his ears: There’s some beauty in the noise that’s worth going deaf to hear.” --Pitchfork, 7.6
In 2014, Chang and guitarist Rafiq Bhatia joined founder Ryan Lott as members of Son Lux, expanding the former solo project into a trio. Since then, they have written, recorded, and released an LP, 'Bones;' and given over 300 performances in North America, Europe, and Asia. They are heralded as "the world's most lethal band" by NPR, and described as "thrilling... an ideal synthesis of contemporary forms" by the Wall Street Journal. Chang is also a founding member of Landlady, making “brainy, melodic, pop rock” (Pitchfork) that “transmute existential questions and primal fears into exultant songs” (New York Times).
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Chang was shaped by the city’s diversity and vibrance. He moved to New York in 2007 to pursue music and quickly gained a reputation as a “gigantically talented drummer” (NPR). To date, Chang has recorded and/or performed with such varied artists as Son Lux, Landlady, Joan As Policewoman, Body Language, Matthew Dear, Dave Douglas, Rafiq Bhatia, Rubblebucket and Moses Sumney.
In 2015, Chang started beta testing Sunhouse’s Sensory Percussion. This new technology translates the nuances of drumming into sample-based sound worlds. Through testing and developing Sensory Percussion, he has discovered a new creative voice and is gearing up to release his debut with Kowloon Records in Fall of 2017. The project explores the relationship between human and machine, redefining drumming and electronic music.
