The Brooklyn-based indie garage-rock/Americana band Leland Sundries is helmed by man-of-many-hats Nick Loss-Eaton, an artist/music publicist who surrounds himself with a rotating cast of like-minded Brooklynite musicians. Loss-Eaton’s latest offering is the upcoming Leland Sundries debut album titled Music For Outcasts which will be released June 3rd on L’Echiquier Records.

On Music For Outcasts crackling garage-rock meets literate indie rock while steeping in the extreme vibes of New York City. The album’s themes and sonics were shaped by two main experiences in Loss-Eaton’s life; his years-long recovery from alcohol dependency and his enduring and surviving open heart surgery. These events and their repercussions inform the subject matter and tone of Music For Outcasts, with Loss-Eaton staring down his own mortality with his astringently humorous lyrics, spirited attitude, and scrappy indie rock sound.

The bright and jangling new single “Studebaker” precedes the release of Music For Outcasts and it’s a track that spans Americana and indie rock genres while including an experimental pop bridge and a circa mid-70’s Dylan-like sense of wordplay.

Leland Sundries has two studio EPs, a 7” single, and 3 music videos under its belt, as well as a slew of critical praise from highly respected music sites. The band has toured nationally and is musically in line with acts like Silver Jews, Deer Tick, Wooden Wand, The Hold Steady, and The Modern Lovers.
