Idgy Dean (aka Lindsay Sanwald) is a diverse creator of sound who has been dubbed as a “Creative storm brewing in the center of Brooklyn.” From her almost transcendent and ever promising music one could hardly tell she has been a one-woman band since the release of her first LP OK Cadavers!. But one woman with so much kilowatt power can not make music alone for long until others must seek to collaborate. Currently she is working with Eli Crews (Yoko Ono, tUnE-yArDs, Kathleen Hanna) on her newest LP and her first full-length piece since the debut of OK Cadavers!, entitled Ominous Harminus.
Released Veterans day is the video for Idgy Dean’s brand new single “The Indian Squirrel Dance”, bridging the gap between her previous work and the upcoming work she’s doing with Crews on Ominous Harminus.
The video and the live performance is like a dream that makes you want to dance. The acoustic pop vocals almost seem to be in another language at times, evoking a sense of another world and another time. The guitar riffs are sensual, upbeat, smooth like the images in the film. It is magnetic, the video is a perfect resemblance of the song with scenes of a beautiful woman undressing under a full moon and the symbolic images of nature and water creating a feeling of freedom and humanity.
