About: Noise Witch from Brooklyn Kim Boekbinder www.facebook.com/KimBoekbinderMusic www.kimboekbinder.com Jason Pfaff (feat. Scantron) https://jasonpfaff.bandcamp.com/album/music-for-ultras-ep Lara Buckley https://larabuckley.bandcamp.com/album/disturbed-ground-and-waste-places Kim Boekbinder is a noise witch, casting neon spells over shadowed rooms with her hypnotic synth incantations and pulsating basslines. Following up the success of 2013’s electro alt-pop space epic The Sky is Calling, Kim will release NOISEWITCH on September 8, 2017. Mixed by Joel Hamilton (Highly Suspect, Pretty Lights, The Black Keys) at Studio G in Brooklyn, the new album is danceable witch-pop, each song is a spell cast on the audience. Kim is a legend in the crowd-funding space, thanks to her strong association with Amanda Palmer (whom she has recorded with, and is director Amanda’s new music video). Kim also helped Amanda write her crowd funding book, a best seller. She is also well known in the feminist electro-pop space (e.g. Peaches is a huge fan/supporter). She was also part of alt-cabaret breakout band, Vermillion Lies. Kim has spent the last few years compelling audiences the world over with hypnotic video installations that complement her music, using looping, throbbing, layered soundscapes to craft a live show that was described by the peerless Peaches as “intense!” Originally from Canada but now a full-fledged New Yorker, Kim has been releasing music since 2006, starting as the duo Vermillion Lies. Her first full-length solo album, The Impossible Girl, released in 2010, was produced by legendary Boston producer Sean Slade. Kim has worked with Amnesty International, Fusion.net, The Equal Justice Initiative, PBS Space Time and most recently landed on the front page of the New York Times website with a Jay Z/Molly Crabapple collaboration she directed and did sound design for. She has also recorded music for book trailers, created commissioned songs for art shows, composed short film soundtracks, had her songs license
