Funeral Club is the California based husband and wife duo Joseph and Jenny Andreotti. Red Mountain brings the experimental side of the band together in a surrealistic dreamscape of organic instrumentation coupled by Jenny’s sweet sounding vocals. The folk traditions mixed in 60′s futuristic psychedelic groove drip in sincerity and nostalgia. A beautiful album to listen to deep in the night or in the early morning as the wind gently rustles the curtains pressed against the open window.
Funeral Club have continued to play mostly in the Echo Park/Silverlake area in Los Angeles at Spaceland, The Echo, Echo Curio, The Silverlake Lounge, and The Echo Park Film Center, performing with Damon & Naomi, A Hawk & A Hacksaw, The Wooden Birds, and others.
Their releases have received critical acclaim from such media outlets as Pop Matters, Lost At Sea, Stranded In Stereo, Art Rocker, God Is In The TV, Unpeeled, Web In Front, Buzz Bands LA, EarFarm, as well as being voted Los Angeles band of the month at Deli Magazine.
“… Mary Shelley hooking up with Nick Cave for some gothically cool western twang-in a maze of blood and lead.”
“…It’s the sound of a desert night addled with early ’60s pop and the rust-edged creak of Tom Waits at his earthiest.”
“It’s gothic. It’s gothic in the classical, brooding, menacing sense… Poe is American and so are Funeral Club and they have the monochromatic, funeral beat down to a tea party. “Arrival” yaws and slops a slow march down the graveyard path with black glitter feedback, archly necrophiliac lyrics half swallowed, half spat by some greyscaled angel and it still feels right, still sounds like Poe has been jamming with Nick Cave.”
