Title: May
Format: 12"
Label: Captured Tracks
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Following up their excellent Wierd Records debut LP "Dust on Common" and a limited European split-12", Led Er Est return with a new 12" EP, the aptly named "May," their second release on C/T. The trio describe the record as a ".. collection of theme-based songs, almost like a dark sci fi film soundtrack..." The songs were written at various points some were written on the long drives over their last European tour. Side A opens with the dancefloor friendly "Lonsome XOXO", "a song about a girl obsessed with death" while "Plants" contains a cosmic disco bassline and use of 12-string guitar, showing their influences fall outside the narrow margins of electronic music. This is further evidenced by "Madi la Lune" a nod to British underground songwriter Bill Fay. Side B gets darker and heavier with the apocalyptic sci fi synth punk opener "Opto 5." This mood continues into "May" and ends with the instrumental brain melter "Drosophilia Melanogaster." "May" is available for digital and vinyl release and is a precursor to their forthcoming LP on the brilliant Sacred Bones label." - Captured Tracks.

Title: Dust On Common
Format: LP
Label: Mannequin
Country: Germany
Price: $21.00
"RSD 2017 release. Mannequin Records present a reissue of one of the best minimal synth/cold wave albums of the past 15 years. Dust On Common from Led Er Est (Sam De La Rosa, Shawn OSullivan, and Owen Hutchinson) was originally released in 2009 by the seminal Brooklyn based record label Wierd Records. The bands first full-length release showed the three piece clearly breaking out of the minimal synth underground they had been a vital integral part of since its inception in Brooklyn to create an undeniably contemporary set of highly crafted and restrained, icily psychedelic pop songs. Synthesizing countless disparate musical influences from first wave British industrial music to house, disco, and the largely unknown cold wave (aka "La Vague Froide") tradition in Northern Europe, the tracks on Dust On Common fly by, straight out of the frozen hot, lonely cold plains of vocalist Samuel Kklovenhoofs native central Texas. After digesting a few songs of this rich dust, the listener can do no other than lie down in the wild weird Laredo bunker to revel in the refreshingly brisk blast of hedonistic analog pleasure dancing through the airwaves in the sky above... Comes on orange vinyl; Edition of 500." - Mannequin.

Title: The Diver
Format: CD
Label: Sacred Bones
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Led Er Est emerged from a series of jam sessions that core members Shawn OSullivan and Sam De La Rosa started having in early 07, using bass guitar and some cheap drum machines and synths. They were inspired to record music largely by 70s synth prog, and 80s lo-fi electronics and industrial music. Owen Hutchinson joined the band for their first live show, at the Wierd party that December. In November of 09 Wierd Records released their debut full length. In spring of 2010, they toured Europe with Xeno and Oaklander, playing shows in the UK, Belgium, Germany, the Czech Republic, and Italy. Subsequently they released a 7" and then the May EP on Captured Tracks. Led Er Est did a brief west coast run with Soft Moon last fall and just played SXSW. On stage and in the studio Led Er Est create a thick wall of atmospheric soundscapes using vintage analog recording devices, samplers and synths using sci-fi soundtracks and cold wave as reference points." -Sacred Bones.
