Darcy James Argue's Secret Society CD Release show for Brooklyn Babylon
Brooklyn-based composer-bandleader Darcy James Argue and his innovative 18-piece big band, Secret Society, will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Brooklyn Babylon, April 30th on New Amsterdam Records. The follow-up to their critically acclaimed and Grammy-nominated debut, Infernal Machines (2009), Brooklyn Babylon shows Argue “expanding his sonic palette as never before.” (Tad Hendrickson, Wall Street Journal).
Weaving together progressive jazz, early-American popular styles, Balkan folk musics, and the sounds of Brooklyn's diverse contemporary music scene — from the dance-punk of LCD Soundsystem and experimental indie rock of Dirty Projectors to Missy Mazzoli’s blend of post-rock and quirky minimalism — Argue creates a vividly evocative musical narrative that is at once timeless and unlike anything heard before.
