Diane Coffee/Quilt

When: Tue., July 26, 8 p.m. 2016

The Diane Coffee solo project transforms Foxygen drummer Shaun Fleming into a swoony Elton John-Rod Stewart love child who rides atop a psychedelic steed. Fleming recorded the first Diane Coffee album, My Friend Fish, while confined in his New York City micro-apartment with a severe case of the flu. Not entirely unlike his work with Foxygen, the album is a collection of slightly off-kilter '60s ballads a la the Kinks or the Byrds. On 2015’s Everybody’s a Good Dog, Fleming realizes the true potential of the project, threading together the pop music of three decades with a single binding stitch. Fans of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Ariel Pink will appreciate this songstress’ ear for blending textures and patterns of beloved eras bygone into exquisite modern masterpieces, complimenting psychedelia with soul and glam.
