Pittsburgh band, Blød Maud has released their self-titled debut
album. Formed in October 2013 after vocalist/rhythm guitarist Emily
Crossen was asked to perform some of her Garageband recordings at a
local art gallery with some other acts. Unable to perform all the parts
herself, she recruited drummer/vocalist Patrick Coyle, bassist Rob
Daubenspeck and guitarist Calvin Morooney and Blød Maud was formed.
After playing a few shows locally, they recorded their debut album,
"Blød Maud",with friend and audio-engineer, Taylor Nordberg in a house
in Pittsburgh's Mt. Washington during a snowstorm.
Blød Maud draws influence from many different artists and genres,
such as The Smiths, Electrelane, and Joy Division. Though none of the 11
songs on the album are very much alike, they are similar in their
moody, popish sound. The album is available now as a free digital
download on Blød Maud's Bandcamp site
and will be released on vinyl later in the Spring (keep an eye out around the end of April.)
