The Lovely Sounds of Des Ark

indexIndie pop rock act Des Ark will be performing at Strange Matter on Thursday, Dec. 10 in support of their third full length album, “Everything Dies.”

Over the past decade, Aimée Collet Argote has howled and jerked in sweaty houses and rock clubs, backed by a drummer, another drummer, yet another drummer and a second guitarist, and a small symphony. She’s brought big crowds to a whisper with nothing but her voice and a banjo or a tiny guitar that kept slipping out of tune. And though it perennially confuses the crap out of crowds expecting one thing & getting the other, she somehow manages to maintain these two separate DesArk’s — different songs, utterly different audience experiences — and the dissonance & tension in turn somehow bind together in a brilliant display of songwriting. Everything Dies is the much anticipated follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed “Don’t Rock The Boat, Sink The F*cker.”
